1984 Carver Mariner 2897 Cruiser in Mckeesport, Pennsylvania

Stock #145797

Among the most popular models, Carver has produced in its nearly 50-year history. They remain popular today because they are ideally suited to the boater who is looking to buy their first cruiser without breaking the bank.

The cockpit is about 45 square feet and has enough room for a couple of deck chairs or for several people to fish without getting in the way. There are large hatches in the cockpit deck for engine access and a door in the transom for convenient access to the swim platform.

The one feature of the 28-foot Mariner that nearly every owner and prospective purchaser finds appealing is its huge flybridge. There are two forward-facing bench seats that will seat six people. While dockside or at anchor, the back of the helm seat may be flipped forward to make a U-shaped settee for entertaining.

The main saloon of the 28 Mariner 11 feet long, 8 feet wide and offers as much living space as many 30-footers. The cabin is entered through a sliding door offset slightly to the starboard side of the cockpit. The main saloon of the Mariner has a settee to starboard just inside the companionway and a convertible dinette to port. Forward, the galley is to starboard and head and shower to port.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by POP Yachts.
