1976 Carver Santa Cruz 28 Cruiser in Rockwall, Texas

Stock #118257

Here is a classic boat that just doesn't come around very often.

This 1976 Carver Santa Cruz 28 has that old school classic look and design. Step on board and it definitely takes you back.

This boat is equipped with twin Mercruiser engines. Both fired up as expected. The engines are good and running. Thankfully, if you are interested in restoring this boat to its original glory, it doesn't appear that you will need to focus too much attention on the engines.

The rest of the boat is fully functional and operational. However, if you are into restoration, you have nearly a blank canvas with which to work.

The stern deck appears to be in good condition. Going down below, again, it's functional, but this is where it could really benefit from that make-over. The current owner had the green carpet torn out long ago then installed teak flooring. The flooring looks great and is period accurate.

The v-berth is large enough for two, and the cushions appear updated. The galley is simple, but equipped with what you would expect; sink, microwave, and refer. You'll also find a flat screen TV on board.

The head has a shower in it, and the sink counter top has been replaced by the current owner with one solid piece of granite. The kitchen counter top was also replaced. This, too, is granite.

This boat has a lower helm and an upper helm. The lower helm also has a Garmin 400C Fishfinder.

This 1976 Carver Santa Cruz could be that classic diamond in the rough that you've been waiting for. It's a head turner. Imagine this boat hauled out then given a top to bottom make-over. How much would this boat sell for then?

This classic boat is about the looks, the period, and the journey. You won't be the first to arrive at your favorite cove unless you dropped anchor the night before. But, this boat is more about class than speed.

Inquire soon, because this boat will go fast.

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

The hull has some areas where someone attempted to smooth out some dings. There are rub marks as well. All hull blemishes are pictured. Though this boat is operational and in a slip, a survey will reveal the areas of attention that this boat needs to reach full restoration.

Impellers were replaced last spring.

Owner changes oil twice annually.
