Carver C40 Command Bridge

Both 2018 and 2019 models of the Carver C40 Command Bridge are available on the West Coast, and these mid-sized luxury motoryachts have a lot to offer couples or families who want to cruise in style.

The C40’s design and name draw focus to the prominent flybridge (command bridge), made to give the skipper and guests a commanding view of the surroundings. Covered by a hard top and shielded with a plexiglass wind deflector, the bridge threads the needle between completely enclosed and open philosophies. There’s also a ton of seating and a second helm chair for hanging out, and a large padded sunlounge area aft, positioned out of the protection of the hardtop. The railings are a good touch for safety and stability when underway. Access to and from the bridge is via a set of steps from the cockpit.

Walkways with high railings lead to the foredeck from both port and starboard. The foredeck is large enough for a few people to enjoy the ride and feel the wind on their faces.

Inside, dark wood highlights make for a sophisticate aura. There’s no helm here, so the salon and galley have free reign to dominate the space. A set of stairs forward leads to the two staterooms below, a guest with twin berths and the master with a queen-sized bed. The C40 is pushed by two Cummins QSB 6.7 380-horsepower inboard diesel engines.
