33 Aft Cabin; 350 Aft Cabin
Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced in 1991, the Carver 33 Aft Cabin (called the 350 Aft Cabin in 199394) is a mini-motoryacht whose modest dimensions belie a surprisingly roomy interior. Hull construction is solid fiberglass with a shallow keel for directional stability. A wide 13'3"" beam and high freeboard make possible the two-stateroom layout of the 33 Aft Cabin. For those willing to live with the tight quarters and modest storage, the interior is functional if not luxurious. A convertible dinette is forward in the compact salon, opposite a settee to port. The lower helm is to port as well, forward of the settee, which is unusual as most lower helm positions are to starboard. The galley features a full-size refrigerator in addition to a 3-burner stove and microwave. The double berths in both staterooms are angled to save space (the one in the forward stateroom is a tight fit for two adults). Wraparound windows in the salon provide plenty of natural lighting which takes the edge off the dark teak woodwork. An aft deck with hardtop offers an outside dining area. Crusader 330hp gas engines cruise at 1617 knots. In 1995, Carver engineers added an integral swim platform and reintroduced this boat as the 355 Aft Cabin.
