Issues Causing Price Drop From $200K To $140K
1.Wet Core issues.
  a. A potential buyer brought his moisture meter and found wet readings. We called in a SURVEYOR and he confirmed very wet readings. I can provide the survey.
    i. Starboard side of the hull from the rub rail down to just above the water line. From the transom forward about one third the length of the boat. This is confusing because this boat supposedly is NOT a cored hull.
    ii. A large portion of the foredeck. This is a common issue on these boats because the recessed area for the sunpad cushions holds water most of the time.

2. Engine Oil.
 a. The owner paid the yard to change the oil and filter two years ago. The mechanic, a known drug addict who has since been terminated, never did the work yet collected the money. He has done this to a number of other customers. The filters are marked with a 2014 date. So, the oil is 5 years old. The owner has probably put only 100 to 125 hours on the boat during that period.
  b. The surveyor noticed when he pulled the engine oil dipsticks that the port engine oil, while very dark seemed clean. The starboard engine oil had a grit feeling.
  c. I am arranging to have the boat put in the well, run for 15-20 minutes to warm her up and really get the oil moving and then pull 8 fluid samples. Three engine oils, three antifreeze, and two transmission.

3. The starboard engine has turbo blowback.

4. Salon Headliner
  a. The salon headline has a stain about 4’ X 3’. I put my finder up to see what might be going on and it stuck hard. When I pulled it off, it left a significant dimple.

5. The bridge has two small windows that swing out. One window is missing.

6. There are two fiberglass repairs on the hull. One is on the bow above the water line and one on the port side about 1’ X 3’. The gel coat is now a different shade.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Carver 506 Motor Yacht is an aft-cabin motor yacht that offers spacious living accommodations. It does so by virtue of a design that features raised, nearly flush deck walk-arounds that enable the salon to be expanded the full width of the beam. That gives the 506 a wider, roomier-than-expected interior, which Carver has further opened up with one big, inviting room that encompasses the salon, galley and dining area. A free-standing dining table and chairs provide extra flexibility. And the intriguing two-tiered elliptical window configuration offers unparalleled visibility whether passengers are seated or standing - plus, the streamlined windows add to the bold swept-back exterior styling. The 506 offers three main levels for entertaining: the flybridge, aft deck and cabin...all can be fully air-conditioned and enclosed.
