48’ & 50’ Silverton Convertible Express Model

More coastal cruiser than serious fishing boat, the Silverton 48 Convertible (called the 50 Convertible in 2007–08) is a good-looking flybridge yacht whose versatile layout, spacious interior, and attractive price made her one of the bestselling boats in her class. Built on a solid fiberglass hull with a wide 16’4″ beam and prop pockets, Silverton sold a lot of these boats right up until the Great Recession hit in 2007. Her three-stateroom interior includes two double  staterooms including a large amidships master with walkaround bed. A comfortable salon features a solid cherry table, Bose stereo system, and an Ultraleather sofa with incliner and concealed rod storage. The galley came standard with under-counter refrigeration and hardwood flooring. Front windows—unusual in most modern convertibles—provide additional natural lighting in the forward area of the salon. A hatch in the galley sole reveals a huge storage compartment. A livewell, raw water washdown, freezer, transom door, and engine room access door are found in the cockpit. Note the molded flybridge steps. Volvo 715hp D-12 diesels cruise in the mid to high 20s (30+ top).

Manufacturer Overview

How does a Silverton Yachts grow from building sea skiffs in a small town to a full line of Convertible, Motor Yacht, and Sport Bridge models that are prized by boaters around the world? How does it maintain consistency with a tradition of craftsmanship and product quality year after year? And how has it elevated its product image from that of the low-end priced boats in their class to those of the very greatest value overall? Well, it does so by listening to what its customers want in the boats they own and in those they hope to own. And by the continual investment in new technology, sophisticated design and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment. All of this was started by Silverton Yacht’s founders John and Warren Luhrs in 1969. The company has since become recognized as the premier boat builder delivering unsurpassed performance, comfort, and value.

Silverton Yachts is committed to excellence through its progressive management in collaboration with owner-employees and a national dealer network.
