The Carver Yachts C34 is Named Boat of the Year in Japan

PULASKI, WI--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - The Carver Yachts C34 Command Bridge took home the 2013 Boat of the Year Award at the 2014 Japan International Boat Show. 

This award is presented to the yacht that best reflects design innovation, build quality and application of new technology, making it prestigious and coveted for leaders in the industry.

The annual Japan International Boat Show, held earlier this month in Yokohama City, attracts vendors and enthusiasts from all over the world. The Japan Marine Industry Association, backed by various international sponsors, organizes the event.

Carver's dealer in Japan is Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. in Yokohama, Japan. Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. has been a Carver Yachts dealer for the past 20 years and in that time has built the brand to be among the market share leaders in Japan.

Dick Nocenti, Carver marketing director, said the 2014 Japan show was a great success and very important for Carver Yachts.

"Taking home Japan's Boat of the Year Award was confirmation that Carver's new line of command bridge style yachts reflects our determination to be the most innovative yacht builder in the industry," Nocenti said. "The quality, comfort, privacy and value provided by the C34 are features appreciated by customers in Japan and throughout the world."

The Carver C34 is one of three new models Carver has introduced to the global market in the past year. It was unveiled at the beginning of 2013 and represents the essence of Carver design, durability and modern convenience. The yacht features a low profile command bridge, which provides 360-degree-viewing for piloting, a spacious homelike floor plan, two private staterooms and open entertainment areas as well as extra wide deck walkways.
