1998 Carver 530 Voyager Pilothouse

League City, Texas


The Carver 530 Voyager was the best-selling yacht in her class for several years. Her classic pilothouse lines will probably always be in style and the Voyager's spacious cherry wood interior ranks with the best cruising yachts of her day. The layout as the galley forward of the salon rather than the pilothouse level as it is in many similar yachts. A curved settee is next to the center-line lower helm and steps behind the helm lead up to the flybridge. There are (3) staterooms and (2) heads below including a full-beam master stateroom with a washer/dryer cabinet and tub/shower in the private head. A walk-around queen berth is in the forward VIP stateroom and the third quest stateroom berths can be converted to a sofa. On the upper deck, aft of the helm, is a circular lounge area with a molded table that can accommodate eight or nine adults. Additional features include cockpit engine room access, joystick steering and bow/stern thrusters. 

"THIS IS IT" is an excellent example as pride of ownership shows throughout the vessel. She is powered by the preferred Cummins C-Series diesel engines with 450hp each with very low original hours (940).

She is professionally maintained, both mechanically and cosmetically.

Truly a must see as she will not disappoint the most discriminating of buyers.

Offers considered!

The Carver 530 Voyager was an instant success due to its multi-function use not only of space, as Carver is well known for, but that this motor yacht/cruiser does it all. It has an aft deck, roomy salon, open galley, lower helm deck, very spacious guest quarters and a large master. This Carver 530 is perfect for weekend trips, long getaways and even as a live aboard. The aft deck is large enough for a nice morning breakfast, assembling dive gear, and has easy access to the engine room.  Entering the salon through the heavy duty stainless steel aft sliding door that also has a screen door, the salon is spacious with a large leather settee to port, that converts to sleep two, a large expandable high/low coffee/dinette table, a built-in end table with Corian counter top and forward is the entertainment center. Across to starboard, is a comfortable chair, an end table and an dining bar and (3) bar stools. Forward is the large bar/galley areas. Large windows give it a bright open feeling. The salon is spacious and is open to the fully equipped galley. The salon/galley areas feature cherry wood flooring. The lower helm/pilot house area is forward complete with wrap around helm area, large comfortable helm chair. The lower helm also has a curved leather lounge that can seat 6-7 people.  Visibility from the lower helm is very good and has a side access door to retrieve lines if necessary and has access to the bow. Going down the companionway and to starboard is the master stateroom. The master is quite large with queen bed, plenty of head room, twin closets, washer dryer and separate head and shower rooms; quite unique. All the way forward is the VIP with island queen, closet space and en-suite head. The other guest stateroom is to port, forward of the master and has over and under bunks, plenty of storage and uses the VIP head just across the hall. The lower helm has access to the bridge by an easy set of steps. The bridge is also very spacious and comfortable with plenty of seating. The upper helm has all the electronic capabilities as the lower helm. The bow and side walkways have high stainless steel hand rails and a sun pad is located at the bow as well.
