Length w/ Pulpit:
The Silverton 33 Convertible is a good-looking family cruiser whose roomy interior comes as a surprise in a boat this size. Not that a two-stateroom floorplan is unusual in a 33-foot boatthere have been several such designs in the past, some more successful than others. The wide 12'8"" beam of the Silverton 33, however, results in an exceptionally open layout that is enhanced by her large cabin windows. A sleeper sofa and dinette are standard in the salon, and the U-shaped galley includes a built-in microwave, single-burner stove, and an under-counter refrigerator/freezer. Sliding windows provide good cabin ventilation, and two hatches in the salon sole provide access to the engine room. Below, the double bed in the master stateroom faces forward rather than aft, a space-saving design that might prove uncomfortable while underway. The small guest stateroom, aft and to port, has a double berth, hanging locker, and standing headroom by the doorway. The cockpit of the Silverton 33small to begin with owing to the expansive salonincludes a transom door and molded fiberglass steps leading up the flybridge. Cruise at 1820 knots with Crusader 375hp gas inboards (high 20s top).
