1998 Burger Raised Pilothouse
Originally built as Lady Grace Marie for a repeat Burger client, Silver Seas has had three owners. Her build concept followed typical Burger quality for the U.S. inland and coastal waters yet equipped the vessel for extended island cruising with the potential to do ocean crossings. The result has served its owners extremely well as her timeless design, open and bright interior and superior systems are very desirable in today’s marketplace.
Raised pilothouse configuration with walkaround side decks, open aft deck and Euro transom. Four owner and guests staterooms with ensuite heads. Three crew cabins forward. Country styled galley with informal dining. Main salon formal dining and casual areas with sofa and chair seating. Flybridge with control station, bench seating, hardtop and boat deck with tender.
Main Salon: The starboard side midships entrance features a full height glass entryway door, and marble tiled floor. A spindled banister highlights the stairwell for the accommodations below. Moving aft and centered is the dining table for six. Under the portside forward salon window is a teak wood table and table lamps. The forward bulkhead has upholstered wall panels that open to reveal a custom buffet center housing a full granite topped wet bar with sink, icemaker, refrigerator, and lighted glass cabinets for crystal. Storage drawers for silverware and linens. To port is the midship entranceway with same full height glass entryway door. In this corridor is access to the “doghouse” storage and equipment area. The large Day Head is in this area and runs athwartship behind the buffet cabinet. The wall covering is a nautical world map theme.
Moving aft of the dining area is a fabric covered L-shaped couch with two larger occasional chairs and footstool aft. A vintage wood trunk box serves as a coffee table. Aft to port is a full length library with bookshelves and table with lamp. To starboard are cabinets housing the TV and A/V equipment easily viewable from the chairs and sofa. The aft salon bulkhead is full height windows and centered is the full height windowed door to the aft deck.
The salon interior woodworking is satin finished Cherry Wood. Each salon window has electric Hunter Douglas silhouette blinds separated by cherry mullions encasing each.

The aft deck has warping windlasses serving the stern cleats.
The Engine Room is accessed from the aft centerline lazzerette doorway with watertight Freeman door or from an emergency deck hatch on the aft deck. The machinery space is arranged in three separate sections. The aft compartment is divided by a watertight partition bulkhead separating the aft generator compartment from a workshop area.
