Here is a very desirable 1986 29 Silverton 290 sport cruiser powered with twin newly rebuilt freshwater cooled Crusader 4.3L direct drive inboards located in Clinton CT. The pocket drives give a amazing shallow draft. The near 11 foot beam delivers a nice stable boat despite her light displacement. This boat is not your typical family cruisers. She has well thought out features that make her stand out from the crowd. Take a thoughtful look, you will be surprised.
The low profile flying bridge with full canvas enclosure, center helm and seat combined with a large L shaped companion seating configuration provides the open air comfort for entertaining a small crowd while making an excellent platform for navigating the boat. Three steps down and you are on the large open cockpit perfect for fishing, or lounging, or whatever you like.
A second three steps down puts you at the interior level with a very comfortable aft state room with a queen size bunk, built in cupboards and night stand to port. There is access to the front end of the engines through the insulated aft bulkhead. There is a large port opening to the cockpit.
Down the passage way is the modern head with a marine head, sink and shower. There is plenty of room here to spread out and take a shower.
Along the starboard side is a galley, impressive with a long counter workspace, built in AC/Alcohol cook top, AC/DC refrigerator and microwave oven.
To port is a dinette seating area that does pull down into a double bunk, if you need to sleep another couple. Finally forward is a second berthing area with a raised double berth.
The unusual combination of an aft stateroom, large open cockpit, and three steps up to the command bridge make this a very comfortable boat with excellent living space on deck. Wide side decks give easy access to the foredeck.
There are only 50 hours on the rebuilt Crusader freshwater cooled engines which are mounted under the cockpit with easy access through large deck hatches.
While this boat is presently out of the water, the engines were reported to have been running well when she was laid up and winterized. The canvas is off the boat and well stored.
This Silverton 29 Sport Cruiser is a nice comfortable family cruiser with an emphasis on the on deck living area and comfortable private living and sleeping areas below decks, perfect for a couple of adults or a family with children.
