In 1954 in a Milwaukee garage, Charles Carter and George Verhagen began building mahogany-planked, high-speed runabouts. What started as a hobby soon turned into a business as word quickly spread, and the two fledgling boat builders began selling their hand crafted boats. Combining the first three letters of their last names, the Carver Boat Company and the Carver brand was born.
In 1956, the entrepreneurs moved their growing business to Northeast, Wisconsin; to take advantage of the area’s dedicated work force and excellent transportation facilities. They built mahogany runabout boats throughout the 1960s, and then added cabin cruisers to their expanding line. In the 1970s, the switch was made to fiberglass, with additional advances that included larger, twin inboard powered cabin cruiser designs such as the ever popular 33’ Mariner.
By the 1980s, Carver had been acquired by new owners which enabled the company to expand sales beyond the Great Lakes region and truly become a recognized leader in the luxury motor yacht market on a national scale. In fact, the Carver Aft Cabin motor yacht was first introduced during this period and became synonymous with the Carver brand in the 1980’s and ‘90’s. The 1990’s also witnessed the introduction of the elegant and upscale Voyager long range cruiser series as well as the Montego series of stern drive cruisers. By the late 1990s, all Carver Yachts were constructed with no structural wood below the waterline, fiberglass stringers, and many other features that have made them the most durable and longest lasting boats in the water. In 2000, the largest Carver Yacht was introduced—the 57 Voyager Pilothouse.
Today, Carver Yachts continues to lead the industry in creating spacious, highly functional, durable and dependable world-class cruising vessels. The future promises new and exciting developments to enhance the ultimate cruising experience that only a Carver can deliver.
