Here's an All-American girl who looks as if she's just graduated from finishing school in Italy. I was dazzled from the moment I stepped aboard Carver's new 570 Voyager Pilothouse.

If you've seen the builder's 530 Pilothouse, the new 57 may look familiar. Essentially, it's a stretched version of that popular cruiser-the salon has been extended and more space ha& been added in the master stateroom and galley.

From the cockpit, you step through a curved sliding glass door into a salon lit by eight huge, frameless windows. Immediately you are smitten by the sheer luxury of the furnishings and the cherrywood panels and bulkheads. To port, there's a full-service galley with lovely dark counters, microwave oven, built-in coffee maker, trash compactor, fridge/freezer and a stove with a vent. Also available are two snack bar stools for the aft counter.

And then you come to the pilothouse with its L-shaped settee cupping the very macho black Ultraleather captain's chair and a console as audacious as ever put in a motoryacht. A stairwell leads up to the bridge, and there is a starboard- side access door. By now you know you 're in a yacht pojsed for the New Millennium.

Admirable Engineering

Forward, in the bow, is the VIP guest stateroom with its pedestal queen berth brightened by an overhead hatch and portlights on either side. The third stateroom is just abaft this and is really more of a kid's room or crew's quarters, with over/under bunks tucked along the port side.

The master stateroom is a true pied-a-terre. It features an oversized queen berth with plenty of walkaround space, three cedar-lined lockers, a five-drawer dresser and a nice head arrangement-there's an ensuite wash basin and two separate compartments for the toilet (to port) and the tub and shower (to starboard).

Topside, the bridge is-as we've come to expect from such vessels-not only the fair weather place from which to pilot the boat, but also where owners and guests will pref er to be while under way. The helm seat is a single, swiveling 180 degrees, and facing another well-designed instrument console. A two-person seat with a wet bar is to starboard, and there's a picnic area replete with Jenn-Air grill. A large, L-shaped bench seat aft has its own cocktail table.

Those long winters in Pulaski, Wis., where Carvers are built, must foster lots of think tank time, because the 570 Voyager is rife with admirable engineering and thoughtful accommodations.
