Design and Build Overview, Layout Walk-Thru and Highlights

Carver brought in renowned naval architect Donald L. Blount for advice on hull lines and performance. It tapped Ward's Marine Electric, a company with a great history of its own, to specify the electrical, control and navigational systems for the yachts. And after looking worldwide, Carver enlisted the Venetian design team of Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard for the exterior styling. The Italian duo also laid out the interior arrangement and worked with A La Mer on the décor.

The use of a team with this depth of experience is common for the world's largest custom superyachts, where cost is no object, but it is a bit unusual for a production boat company such as Carver to carry planning to this extent. The result is worth whatever Carver invested, for the Marquis 65 went well beyond my expectations. Built entirely in Wisconsin with uncompromising attention to the preferences of American buyers, the yacht is an exceptional combination of styling, accommodation and performance that has an undeniable Italian flair, yet is heir to the tradition of spacious comfort pioneered over the years by the Carver Mariners.

One can board the 65 Marquis via the stern rather than the side bulwark gate, across a sizable platform that can be dropped to water level for swimming or even lower for launching and retrieving a small tender. Up a few steps, and you arrive at the curved stainless-framed glass salon door, where you'll find a little something extra: a screen. Blessed as this land of ours is with mosquitoes, black flies and no-see-ums, the screen is very sensible, and it rolled effortlessly into place.

Beyond the entry lay an uninterrupted vista that took in the salon, dining room, galley, pilothouse and the horizon ahead. It is not easy to keep such a space from looking long and narrow, especially when a yacht carries full side decks, but the designers achieved it through a combination of several techniques. First, there is an abundance of windows along the sides of the house, expanding the apparent width of the room. Second, partial dividers-the port one holding the galley's refrigerator/freezer and the starboard one serving as a base for the open glass stairs to the flying bridge-visually differentiate the salon from the remainder of the deck. Finally, the pilothouse helm area is elevated slightly, providing a better view for the captain, who sits centerline on a comfortable Stidd helm chair, and his guests, who can relax nearby on the circular settee forward of the galley.

The feeling here, and throughout the Marquis, is one of refined modernity. There are no sharp corners, with joinery-edge moldings and bulkhead knuckles displaying large radii that are attractive and safe at sea. All woodwork is cherry with a deep, high-gloss finish. Veneer grain patterns are well matched, and many countertops are cut from burl to offer visual contrast.

The dining table is a work of art in itself, in appearance and function. The oval tabletop has a starburst veneer pattern, with Nuvolari and Lenard's trademark curved diamond in the center, a theme echoed in the saloon overhead and the backs of the dining chairs. The tabletop is mounted on a sturdy, fixed center post, but it slides outboard to create a wider passageway fore and aft when not in use.

Cream colors were selected for the carpets and overheads aboard our test boat, along with lighter colors for the leather chairs and settees, but décor and some other design elements are largely up to the buyer. Kim Riley, Carver's director of communications, and Randy Peterson, manager of propulsion and systems engineering, explained that while Carver does not offer customization of the Marquis 65, the company would consider reasonable "special options" in addition to the extensive list of "owner preference items" that forms part of the yacht's specifications.

TEST CAPTAIN’S FEEDBACK:

"The Marquis 65 is a dream under way, both at sea and in tight quarters. She rides like a much larger yacht, yet handles like one much smaller. We ran at speed through some confused slop offshore, and her quick response to the rudders and trim tabs hoisted the bow easily as we turned into the seas and passed a boat 30 feet longer having a much tougher time of it. We had bow and stern thrusters, which are nice but not necessary, and did not have stabilizers. Frankly, I didn't miss them-I assumed they were fitted and operating until I looked for the controls. Our test boat carried an optional crew cabin abaft the engine room, but the Marquis 65 is well within the capabilities of a skilled owner-operator. To me, half the pleasure of this yacht would be in driving her."
