1995 Silverton 41 Convertible
A solid performer from the 1990s
By Mike Gridley
Although convertibles are not as widely available on the used boat market as flybridge cruisers, there are still many good options to be found. Silverton is one manufacturer that produced several convertible models over the years, including its 41 – a solid performer from the 1990s.
Built from 1991 to 1999, the Silverton 41C was a value-priced sedan with plenty of standard features and great looks that still seem stylish today. Oversized cleats and hawsers, city water inlet, shower, bait prep station or wet bar, and refrigerator round out some of the standard features found in the cockpit. There are two fish boxes that double as storage lockers in the massive cockpit.
The moulded steps, wide side decks and tall welded rails aid getting around on deck. The fore deck is expansive, but the old-style rode-only Good windlass at the pulpit needs to be upgraded.
