2014 Silverton 43C
Power and Motor Yacht Review
by Kevin Koenig
Let’s just say this about the 43C—it ain’t your daddy’s Silverton. The builder, which has staked its claim for years on making relatively staid cruisers, really got outside its own box with this build. That’s apparent the moment you step foot inside the boat’s chic and modern saloon, which has an undeniable New York City-penthouse feel to it. (That’s actually the term the company uses in their press release, but I swear when I saw her at the Miami boat show I had the same reaction—before I saw the release. They really are producing some accurate copy over there in the Silverton marketing department.) The fit and finish throughout is very high quality, and the materials chosen—namely the designer fabrics and omnipresent mahogany—are clean and sleek.
What’s more, for a convertible cruiser, the 43C looks almost, dare I say it, sporty. And with a pair of optional, 455-horsepower Caterpillar C7 ACERTs each in her engine room, not to mention the well-proven hull of their 42, she should really perform much like a sport cruiser too.
Belowdecks the forward master stateroom is notable for its stowage, including a hanging locker, while a portside cabin should be more than suitable for guests.
Silverton took great care to make sure that this was a boat with an eye on the future. And conversely, this is also a boat on which you should have your eye.
