View Brochure


Carnivore was built by Jamie Chadwick for an extremely knowledgeable and meticulous owner. She was designed to be as self sufficient as possible in order to travel and fish remote locations.
Powered by reliable 825hp Series 60 Detroits and a 20kw Northern Lights generator with all service up to date. * The port motor was totally re-built this spring due to a coolant pump failure and has less than 125 hrs. When taken apart the motor showed hardly any wear. The starboard motor was scoped at the same time and found to be in great shape. Complete records are available.
Always maintained to the highest standard the owner has complete service records detailing all work done since her launch in May of 2006.
She is an incredible sea boat, has a beautiful teak interior, tons of rod storage, an extensive equipment list, a super clean engine room, tunnels for shallow draft and on top of that EVERYTHING works! If you are looking for a mid 50's custom boat Carnivore is a must see!
