The Silverton 34 Express is an updated version of the company’s original 34-foot Express (1987–89) with an integrated swim platform and reworked interior. Like all Silverton’s before or since, the 34 Express was priced at the affordable end of the market and aimed at family boaters with an eye for value. The sleek styling is partially the result of eliminating the cabin windows—ventilation and natural lighting come from six small deck hatches located just forward of the windshield. Below deck, the no-frills interior is a tasteful blend of earth-tone fabrics and off-white furnishings. Privacy curtains separate both sleeping areas from the main salon, and the head compartment features a separate stall shower. Galley storage is a plus, and the interior is fully carpeted. An L-shaped sun lounge is opposite the helm on the bridge deck, and the aft cockpit features a wet bar, transom door, and a bench seat at the stern. Additional features include a hydraulically operated engine access hatch, foredeck sun pad, radar arch, fender storage racks, and integral bow pulpit. No lightweight, Crusader 330hp V-drive gas engines cruise the Silverton 34 Express at 18–20 knots (high 20s top).

The Silverton 34 Express is a generic midcabin cruiser from the late 1980s whose low price made her a good alternative to the more expensive express boats in her class from Sea Ray, Chaparral, and Regal, etc. Obviously dated by today’s sportboat design standards, the Silverton 34 was built on a solid fiberglass hull with a deep forefoot and wide 12'10"" beam. Below, the Eurostyle interior is arranged with an L-shaped settee to port in the salon and double berths fore and aft. The midcabin has a privacy door—a rare luxury in a boat this size—while the forward stateroom has a curtain for privacy. A separate stall shower in the head is a plus, and the full-service galley opposite the dinette includes a built-in microwave and several storage drawers and cabinets under the counter. Seating for 6–7 is provided in the cockpit, and hinged hatches in the cockpit sole provide good access to the engines. A bow pulpit, transom door, radar arch, and swim platform were standard. On the downside, the side decks are narrow and difficult to negotiate. Crusader 350hp V-drive gas inboards cruise the Silverton 34 Express at 18–20 knots (high 20s top).
