Vino Tiempo | 1985 Carver 28 Riviera

Belleville, ON, CA


The Carver 2807 Riviera is an express style cruiser but with a unique aft-cabin layout for a boat of this size. This gives you a two-cabin layout and privacy that's very welcome when hosting family and friends aboard overnight. The cockpit is also unique with plenty of seating and a dinette table with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy time together on the water or dockside. The canvas top and full enclosure can be fully opened or closed as conditions permit. She is in very good condition and the present owners have undertaken numerous upgrades since they purchased it including new upholstery, wooden floors, etc.

The layout of the Carver 2807 Riviera Aft Cabin Express Cruiser emphasizes living space. The private stateroom aft offers a single and double berth as well as a vanity sink and hanging locker. Forward, the main cabin features a spacious U-shaped master berth when the center dining table is lowered. You'll find a fully equipped galley with hot and cold pressure water system, a deep stainless-steel sink, two burner electric stove, and refrigerator/freezer. The head compartment features a marine head, sink, and combined shower with sump pump.

The 2807 Riviera's raised cockpit is a wonderful space for open air cruising and entertaining. Plenty of seating with a table and large windows allows everyone to enjoy the ride and socializing while underway, dockside, or at anchor. The cockpit dinette table can also be lowered to make another berth.

 More Information


Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
