General Details

Manufactured for over a decade the 31 Silverton Convertible was known for her roomy accomodations large cockpit and an overall low cost of ownership. This Silverton is being marketed and sold as a PROJECT as her owner has been in the process of completely updating her since 2009. The updates are purely age related and there is no reported history of any notable damage or incident with the vessel. Keep in mind that this is a WORK IN PROGRESS situation.

Details relating to the entire process will be discussed in the specifications but of particular note please be aware that the port side motor was blown and has been removed from the vessel. The seller has the blown motor in the event that you wish to avoid "core charge" for replacement. The starboard motor is in working order so the boat can be operated under her own power.

The information contained in the specifications represents all of the information that we currently have on the boat. Any further determinations will need to be done by you or your duly appointed representatives.

Affiniti is not in the habit of taking on projects such as this but we do feel that she is a solid boat capable of complete restoration. Reasonable offers will certainly be considered and ridiculous offers will not be.


Vessel Walkthrough
The main sleeping area is down and forward with large V-berths and hanging locker. Coming aft is the galley to port with a sink, hot and cold water pressure, refrigerator, and 2-burner stove. Across from the galley is the enclosed head with head, vanity with sink and storage. Go up steps to the main salon area with a lower helm station to starboard. Out the back cabin door is the large fishing/cruising cockpit deck. A second set of flying bridge controls can seat 3 adults.

As previously noted the port side engine was blown and subsequently removed from the boat. The seller does have the motor in storage in event event that you would like to exchange it when relacing it to avoid any core charges. Options relating to the engines are several with of course the best case scenario being the complete replacement of both motors with new technology but if that does work for you simply replacing the blown motor with a rebuild will really reduce the expendature significantly. The starboard engine runs well but the manifolds and risers are due for replacement as they are reaching the end of their useful life cycle. Other mechanical notations are as follows: Other Notes: - The transmission on the Port engine worked properly when the engine           was removed.  - Dripless shaft seals were installed in about 2009.  - There is an 120V Air Conditioner on board, but no generator (there are thru-hulls          for a generator).

Comments & Considerations
Built on an extremely solid foundation there is certainly lots of room for improvement. The seller has been faced with lots of challenges and has taken his time and addressed each in a manner consistent with marine manufacturing standards. His complete lack of time and demands of his professional life leave him no time to complete this total renovation. It is an opportunity for you to finish up the renovation the way you want to and get out on the water economically.
