‘Souvenir’ is a 2001 Carver 506 Motor Yacht. It was purchased new in January of 2002, in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. This vessel is a hard enclosed, Command Bridge and Aft. Deck Motor Yacht with three staterooms, and three heads. The design offers spacious living, with a great room that encompasses the saloon, galley and dining area. It offers three main levels, the fly bridge, aft deck, and cabin; all can be fully air-conditioned, heated, and enclosed. On the bridge, there’s a wet bar with refrigerator and ice maker, and comfortable seating for captain and guests, including an L-shaped lounge aft and a doublewide lounge on the starboard side. The hardtop with its retractable sunroof spans the entire bridge and aft deck.
