Another proud American shipbuilder, Charles Carter and George Verhagen started Carver yachts in 1954. Dairy wasn’t enough for these Wisconsinites. They started out by building mahogany-planked, high-speed runabouts for fun in a garage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
A couple years later they turned their passion into a business. They moved from runabouts to cabin cruisers and added fiberglass to the mix in the 1970s. The company expanded from the Great Lakes area in the 1980s and became a luxury motor yacht leader throughout the nation. Now Carver Yachts is a leader in crafting spacious, highly functional, and dependable world-class cruising vessels from 34’ to 50’.
