More coastal cruiser than serious fishing boat, the Silverton 48 Convertible (called the 50 Convertible in 200708) 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 windowsunusual in most modern convertiblesprovide 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).
