This Cary is described as a “one of a kind”. Most folks familiar with Cary 50 expect to see 4 gas guzzling V8 engines installed in the huge engine room. This, the final 50’ Cary Aventura, was described by one member of the Cary bloggers as “The best running 50’ I’d ever been on was the last one built with 12 cyl MTUs and Arnesons…boat was a beast.” She’s powered with a pair of 1000 horsepower MTUs with only 600 hours since new. They are coupled to military spec Arneson 12 surface drives with ZF transmissions.

Carys were built to take the curse of the Gulfstream effortlessly. That's what made them so popular...advanced hull design...24 degree deadrise...ruggedly built....all give it the ability to slice through 6 and 8 foot waves. So don't hesitate to get on it in the rough stuff. That's what it was designed for.

WARPATH has just been awl gripped two tone grey. The interior has just been re-fit with gloss cherry cabinetry. Carpets and soft goods are fresh. This boat is ready to go.
