Owner’s Remarks

“The Carver 3607 is a semi displacement motor boat, she is like a Tardis inside and could be a comfortable live aboard as well as a competent sea going vessel. Powered by two International V8 diesels, these engines are fitted to many American bus’s /tractors and are very well made! This boat being the first to be imported into the UK, was completed by B.A. Peters at Birdham Pool, Chichester and was the subject of a Boat report by Motor Boat and Yachting in 1981 when new.

She has been owned by us for last 18 years and the previous owner for 13 also, who only sold her to us due to his advanced age and ill health. We have spent a lot of time and money modernising and improving her over the years, including new Raymarine radar, chart plotter, auto helm, bow thruster, davit arms etc etc, in fact too much to mention on here!
