2001 Carver 51′
2001 Carver 506 Motor Yacht
The 506’s interior is generously finished in cherry. Fit and finish are exceptional, and the hardware, fixtures and fabrics appear as first-class. This 506 has been meticulously cared for with constant care and upgrades when needed.
The 506 is an impressive design with an appealing modern approach to styling. Her 51-foot, 7-inch LOA and 15-foot, 4-inch beam are common for a yacht of her type, but within those dimensions, Carver delivers a layout one might find on a 60-footer. She has what is essentially a raised pilothouse, fully enclosed and air conditioned with a comfortable L-Shaped seating area and halogen lighting. A helm bench for three faces a simulated burled-wood trim dash, and accommodations for electronics are integrated in the design. For a bit of fresh air, the 82-by-60-inch tinted glass sunroof slides open at the push of a button.
The 506’s aft deck, also fully enclosed and air conditioned, is integrated with the raised bridge. The design allows the captain a view aft as well as direct contact with guests on the bridge and aft deck. The bridge deck has ample seating for a crowd and a centered wet bar with ice maker and refrigerator. The aft deck has no built-in seating, but the 118 sq.ft. area easily accommodates a loose seating group and cocktail table. Wing doors lead to the slightly raised side decks, side boarding gates and bow. A third door accesses the swim platform, which can also be used for boarding. Aft the swim platform is large with a dunnage box and electric dingy davits.
A sliding door on the aft deck leads to the salon, where the advantages of the 506’s exterior lines are revealed. Because of the raised side decks, the usable interior space extends full beam to the hull sides with obvious tangible effects in interior room. An L-Shaped sofa is to port, with a love seat-size sofa with twin recliners to starboard. A dining area for four is forward opposite the galley, which has wood flooring and molded, simulated-stone countertops.
The master stateroom is aft of the main salon and has a queen-size island berth with an innerspring mattress. There is a vanity area, as well as several cedar-lined hanging lockers. The shower/tub and Vacu-Flush head are in separate compartments. Two guest staterooms are forward of the salon. The forward-most rivals the master, with a queen-size island berth and private vanity, Vacu-Flush head with vanity, and a separate stall shower. The second guest stateroom has two berths and an enclosed with a vanity, shower, and Vacu-Flush head.
Access to the engine compartment is through a hatch in the salon that incorporates the salon sole and the steps that lead to the afterdeck. Engine room access is excellent. The machinery space area extends the length of the salon belowdecks where all ship systems are within reach. Easy service and maintenance capability.
