An extremely popular model, the Carver 500 Cockpit MY (called the Carver 504 in 1999–2000) is a cockpit version of the Carver 455/456 Aft Cabin with additional fuel. The interior is maple which provides a warm but bright interior. The galley is aft in the salon rather than forward as it is in most motor yachts this size. This floorplan makes it easier to access the galley from the aft deck and bridge, while at the same time pushing the salon seating and entertainment areas forward. A sliding door in the aft master stateroom opens to the cockpit with its molded boarding steps and walk-thru transom door. The large U-shaped galley features Marvel refrigeration, convection microwave oven, granite counters, and tons of storage. Additional features include a washer/dryer cabinet in the forward stateroom which has a full head and walk in shower with dual access form solon or stateroom. The aft deck has an integrated swim platform and Seadek flooring. Stairs to large sundeck with tempered glass enclosure panels aft, port, starboard wing doors to side decks with hard top and a large flybridge helm both airconditioned. The salon, staterooms, sundeck and flybridge floors/decks are carpeted. Low hour, Cummins 450hp diesels provide cruise at approximately 18 knots.

The solon has wra- around windows port, forward and starboard. With exterior sunscreen on the forward window and window treatments on port and starboard with blackout shades that raise out of site behind window treatments. The interior is tastefully decorated with a nautical theme.


The galley is to port and has appliances on the aft bulkhead double sink to port, and counter with overhead cabinets forward in the U-shaped arrangement that is open to the solon. A custom fold up counter extension provides additional preparation counter space.
