The 564 is powered by a pair of Volvo new D-12 electronic diesels. The D-12 was specially designed for faster planing boats, and it features Volvo's Electronic Diesel Control system. Electronically controlled ignition timing provides more fuel-efficient combustion in the cylinders, which means you get better fuel economy, higher power, and reduced exhaust emissions. The engines are very quiet and there is no significant smoking when the boat is powered up and put onto a plane. The engine itself features six electronic injectors, a gear-driven fuel pump, freshwater cooled turbo charger and air cooler, and of course, electronic engine controls and displays for precise rpm settings and easy engine diagnostics. Better still, the D-12 develops maximum torque at just 1400 rpm to get the bigger yachts up and running in a hurry.
The master stateroom is located just aft of the salon and features an island pedestal queen berth, beautiful cherry cabinetry and trim, elegant appointments with ample storage. The master head is located ensuite with mirrored ceiling, a large bathtub/shower combination in addition to a commode in separate compartments, and a beautiful vanity.
The guest stateroom is located forward of the salon and features its own island queen berth, two cedar lined closets, luxurious appointments, and its own ensuite head with vanity and separate shower stall.
The third stateroom is also impressive with full stand up headroom, and washer/ dryer, and its own ensuite head with shower and vanity. It's a perfect stateroom for the kids.
There is a sliding door access from the master stateroom to the cockpit which features nearly 82 square feet of space, molded boarding steps, and a transom door that leads to a huge swim platform with enough room for a tender, plenty of storage, and neatly hidden shore power, telephone and entertainment receptacles. The cockpit helm is equipped with the customary "top of the line" marine electronics positioned ergonomically for the discerning Captain with visibility from the helm being excellent both forward and aft. With recently installed new generation Garmin "touch screen" electronics, two cameras, electronic Volvo engine displays, "Escape Plan" is a captain's Dream boat!
The forward leaning fiberglass arch, hard top, full glass forward windshield, and clean style lines running from the bow to the trailing end of the swim deck provides the classic and timeless appearance that Carvers are known for. This is one great looking boat!
Forward access to the bow is provided via wide port and starboard walkways with good hand holds all the way forward. Deck hardware is substantial both in quality and quantity being strategically located for ease of securing the vessel in docking and anchoring. The diamond cut pattern deck non-skid is throughout and offers sure footing and ease of cleaning.
The aft cockpit provides access to the fiberglass swim platform which offers an integrated pull out and down swim boarding ladder and hot and cold transom shower. The ships' tender is stored on a custom-designed powered winch mount.
