1987 Silverton 37 Convertible:
"It was contemporary styling, versatility and an attractive price that helped to make Silverton's 37 Convertible one of the most popular boats in her class for years. Her versatility and price continue to attract the second and third generations of owners to these great family cruisers.
The "convertible" designation bestowed by Silverton suggests a boat intended the dual purposes of sport fishing and cruising, but it's safe to assume the 37 Convertible has more appeal and more utility as a family cruiser than a sportfisherman.
The 37 Convertible's hulls are solid fiberglass laminates while decks and superstructures are composite constructed utilizing core materials for thermal insulation, weight reduction and strength. The 1987 models were built with closed-cell foam core. For the most part, the quality of construction, fit and finish is on a par with other production boats in the same price range although Silverton is rated higher for accessibility for inspection - as above average. Serious structural problems are rare with aging boats although fiberglass attachment "tabbing" failures are common in the areas beneath the forward cabin sole and at the attachment of partial bulkheads in forward hanging lockers and galley cabinets.
The seven-foot-long by 11-foot-wide cockpit provides room for lounging dockside or underway and if your interests tend towards fishing, there is plenty of room to accommodate several anglers. All 37 Convertibles had a mechanically attached, fiberglass composite bow platform for deploying and storing an anchor. One of the most popular features of all Silverton 37 Convertibles is a large flybridge with passenger seating on a bench forward of the helm console.
The interior arrangement of the 37 Convertible features a V-berth master cabin forward followed by hanging lockers and a U-shaped dinette to starboard and head with shower and galley to port. Up three steps is the saloon which, with nearly 360-degree visibility and open to the galley and dinette below, seems even bigger than it is.
The majority of 37 Convertibles were powered by the standard twin, 454 CID Crusader Marine gasoline engines [as is this one.] These boats are light with rather substantial windage and can be blown around a bit in a stiff breeze but are otherwise easily handled. With standard Crusader Marine gasoline engines, these vessels cruise between 15-16 knots and top out around 25. Fuel capacity is 300 gallons.
If this is the time for you to get into family cruising or move up in size, Silverton 37 Convertible offers affordable price, strong customer satisfaction and the backing of a company that seems well positioned to survive the tough times.
