The 45 Convertible is a yacht with the twin diesel-engine speed and beamy stability to challenge rough seas and distance. From the roomy cockpit to the sun-padded foredeck to an imposing bridge, the 45 Convertible is the realization of the voyager's desire to experience the world at its most exciting. An electronically actuated helm console, opening to access the electronics, is one realization of our engineers' desire to create the perfect boat. Fitted with cherry wood joinery, bulkheads, and doors, the 45 Convertible's interior is luxurious and genial with natural light. The main-deck cabin features a convertible L-lounge and settee. The galley of the 45 Convertible has Corian countertops and modern appliances. On the lower deck, three generously furnished staterooms accommodate a pair of travelers each, with double berths and ample storage. The master stateroom of the 45 Convertible has a private head. A second head with stall shower serves the guests, whose staterooms are unusually spacious.

Power Boat Guide describes the 45 Silverton as: “Feature-rich sports convertible, the signature Silverton styling is sporty, spacious and seaworthy. Space efficient layout combines roomy three-stateroom interior (most 45 footers have two) with big cockpit. Entertainment center with retractable TV in salon, washer / dryer in guest cabin, hardtop, ultra-leather upholstery, cherry cabinets, molded bridge steps, engine room access from cockpit.”
