Manufacturer Provided Description

The Carver 564 Cockpit Motor Yacht is a limited production luxury cruising yacht that adds the versatility of a large cockpit (approximately 82 square feet) to the timeless aft cabin motor yacht design. When it comes to cruising in comfort, nothing compares to the 564's bridgedeck layout. The optional fully-enclosed bridge with available climate control keeps passengers cruising in even less-than-ideal conditions. The command bridge seats up to nine and is available with a central island wetbar with an icemaker and refrigerator. The cockpit provides the ultimate in liveaboard convenience with private access to the master suite. Plus, the large integral swim platform and integral staircases with landings make boarding easy. Down below, the three-stateroom floorplan provides the versatility to entertain and accommodate everyone onboard. Since the salon, galley and dinette stretch the full width of the beam, the open-concept living environment is perfect for entertaining. Plus, guests standing in the fully-equipped, casually sunken galley or seated in the salon can enjoy perfect outdoor sight lines through the 564's two-tiered window system. The Carver 564 Cockpit Motor Yacht has three staterooms, each with private head accommodations. The master stateroom aft features incredible amounts of storage, and an island berth with a queen-size, innerspring mattress. The private head features separate water closet and shower compartments. Forward, the guest stateroom offers yet another queen-size island berth, innerspring mattress, and another large private head. To port, a third stateroom provides a full-size locker, private head, and queen-size berth. No detail is too small when it comes to luxury. Solid surface countertops, cherry wood cabinetry and trim, as well as UltraLeather upholstery surround passengers in total comfort.
