2013 Carver C34 ‘Command Bridge’ Motor Yacht Final Impulse

As described by Carver Yachts, she “provides people-friendly features you and your family will love … “.  With her luxuriously appointed interior and the beautiful contemporary design of her exterior, this stylish C34 ‘Command Bridge’ is a mid-sized motoryacht to aspire to ! 

Perfect for both longer range cruising in the Sound or restful evenings aboard at a quiet mooring.  She has a large aft deck and flybridge for entertaining guests, and the salon settee and galley provide ample space to keep them well fed and comfortable.  You can sleep as many as six in two separate staterooms and the convertible salon settee double.  

We’ve been through all of her systems carefully, taken care of routine engine service, then took her out on Lake Washington for a ‘shake down’ and to get the photos you’ll see below.  She ran exceptionally well and is a real joy to operate.  Just recently well cleaned and detailed, she’s ready now for your summer adventures … come take a look.

Her twin MerCruiser 5.7 MPI Horizon main engines have been inspected by local MerCruiser mechanics.  We had the main and secondary fuel filters replaced along with new fuel pumps for both blocks.  A persistent temperature code in the SmartCraft ‘VesselView’ led us to remove both main engine sea water pumps for inspection, new impellers and seals.  She runs exceptionally well with minimal hours on her engines.  Our recent trip to Lake Washington allowed us to create this speed/rpm chart:  7.5 kts/1,100,  12 kts/2,500,   17.5 kts/3,000,   23 kts/3,500,   26 kts/4,000,   30.5 kts/4,500

We are marketing this vessel per the current IRS guidelines required of nonprofit organizations for their assets of exceptional value.  

This beautiful Carver motor yacht is available now on a charter contract with a guaranteed option to purchase, through Spring 2023.  This arrangement also allows us to discuss a financing plan with prospective buyers.  Her new owners will have the singular and unrestricted use and enjoyment of the Carver C34 during the charter, and will postpone taxes and fees until the ownership transfers.  They will be solely responsible for all maintenance, moorage and operating expenses.  

Call and come out to see this beautiful boat — let’s discuss the advantages of these details!

We are quite selective about the vessels we accept into our program and we pursue a very rigorous process before they are listed for sale.  This begins when we meet with the donor to discuss the condition and upkeep of their boat.  Once accepted each new arrival undergoes a thorough examination, similar to what a marine surveyor will do.  This allows us to prioritize our attention to any deferred maintenance or repairs that may be needed. 

Over the years we’ve performed just about every kind of marine repair from electrical and plumbing issues to all types of appearance enhancements and rebuilding engines.  If something is not working right we fix it, simple as that.  We prove that her electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are correct, safe and functioning properly.  By doing all of this we know our boats quite well – top to bottom – and present them fairly and honestly to buyers.  

We encourage you to have our boats professionally surveyed as a part of your purchase process.  By the time we’ve finished and the boat is advertised, we are confident you’ll receive a strong report from your surveyor.  

Thank you for considering PMF boats in your search !
