2008 Silverton 36 Convertible

Westport, Connecticut


This is one of the most lovingly maintained 36 Convertibles we have seen.  There are only 565 hrs on the Crusader 8.1 liter, 385 hp, twin engines, and much updated and optional equipment including a bow thruster, a new Garmin chart plotter/radar, new interior soft panels, new bedding, and new contemporary outdoor carpets in on the stairway and flybridge, as well as installing new stuffing boxes.  Additional equipment includes a generator and reverse cycle air conditioning.  Summer Salt must be seen to be appreciated.  The owners are selling in order to get a larger boat.
