Manufacturers Description

Sporty lines, a roomy interior, and an attractive price made the Silverton 37 Convertible one of the most popular boats in her class during the 1980s. The Silverton 37 came with a single-stateroom floorplan with a full-size dinette. The salon is completely open to the galley in this layout, and wraparound cabin windows admit plenty of natural lighting. There’s a stall shower in the head, and light oak paneling is applied throughout the interior. (Teak woodwork is found in pre-1985 models.) This is a space-efficient layout. The cockpit is large enough for a couple of anglers, and the flybridge is arranged with guest seating forward of the helm. The majority of Silverton 37s were powered with twin 350hp Crusader gas engines. The cruising speed is 16-17 knots with a top speed in the high 20s. Note that Silverton replaced the original V-drive engine installations with straight-drive inboards in 1981, a significant modification.
