Silverton History

Silverton yachts are built in New Jersey since 1980. They are now part of the egg harbor group.  The Silverton yacht line has always delivered high value for their comfortable boats of both fishing and cruising models. The high-quality product constructed by the passionate team has seen improvements over years. These mid-size vessels are enjoyed up and down the coats by many for years even as the older hulls continue to be maintained with their sea worthiness.

Manufacturer Provided Description
Elegance and spaciousness are what the Silverton 43 Motor Yacht is all about. A sleeker, lower exterior design reduces windage and enhances performance while still incorporating the trademark Silverton SideWalk. These molded steps provide quick and safe passage to the foredeck and allow the salon to reach full-width from gunnel to gunnel. An enlarged flybridge includes an expertly laid out helm with room for all the latest in electronics, plus a large seating area with loads of storage. Entertaining or relaxing is easy on the covered aft deck which comes complete with wetbar and fiberglass weather boards. Beautifully crafted cherry wood is in abundance throughout the well thought-out interior. A grand salon features a large and comfortable settee while the equally large dinette provides additional seating and storage. A standard 27-inch television is strategically located up above for all to view. The expansive, Corian-covered galley is complete with top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of storage. Even a pullout pantry is included. Both staterooms enjoy queen-size, innerspring mattresses and a multitude of storage and hanging lockers. The split head and shower arrangement both fore and aft allow for great flexibility for the owners and guests. Power options in gas or diesel will provide the performance and economy owners desire.
