True to traditional North Carolina custom made sportfish designs, Carnivore sports a large flared bow, sharp entry and moderate 6 degree deadrise. Interior joinery work was created by Duane Willis (above) - Yachtworks Inc and is truly impeccable. She is powered with twin 825hp MTU Detroit Series 60 turbo diesels. She cruises at 30 knots and to the pins runs a smooth 33 knots. She is truly a great seakeeping boat.
