1996 Carver 280 Express Cruiser in Suisun City, California

Stock #115707

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

This Carver 280 Mid Express is a great boat for entertaining with a great layout to hold 8 and sleep 6 very comfortably.

The Carver cruiser had her outdrive replaced last year with a New Mercruiser Bravo Three outdrive, and is powered by the single 330HP Mercruiser 7.4 L, 454CI which will move you out quickly and planes out very easily with her power trim tabs. She has less than 450 hours on the meter. The aft engine compartment is lined with fire retardant panels and also holds 4 batteries; 2 @ 12v and 2 @ 6V.

The cabin is compact with a galley, head, and a V-Berth, a mid-cabin berth plus the galley table settee makes into a 3rd berth.

The Galley includes Refrigerator/freezer combo, Microwave, electric plus kerosene burners under Stovetop, Coffee maker and SS sink with hot and cold water. The head has a china pump style commode and an SS sink combo faucet/shower. And for your entertainment, there is a Vizio flat screen TV.

The navigation system includes a GPS, a VHF Radio, a Depth finder, a Stereo system with speakers both in the cabin and on the deck controlled in both places.

I found the storage in the boat more than adequate as there is storage everywhere.

This cruiser had it all and was the top of the line in her day and is still a great buy today.

Trailer not included.
