2005 Silverton 48 Convertible
The Silverton 48 Convertible hull lines, drawn by Donald Blount and Associates, have been designed to handle the rigors of the Atlantic Ocean, in which Silverton water-tests their boats. With a sharp entry and wide beam, the 48 will perform safely and comfortably in most sea conditions. Modern styling combines with safety and utility topsides. A wide, molded stairway leads from the expansive cockpit to the command bridge, making access safe and easy, even in a seaway. Visibility is excellent at all points from the helm and there is plenty of comfortable seating for the mate and guest on the bridge. Wide side decks and open foredeck have molded diamond non-skid for sure footing and an oversize stainless steel bow rail adds to the security. Offering three staterooms and two heads along with an entertainment-sized salon and full service galley, the 48 will take comfort aboard to a higher level.
Boarding is easy from the swim platform and through the transom door, or cockpit combing, or side deck, or bow depending on the tide and dock. Up two wide steps to the hinged door into the main salon. To port is an L-Shaped, pull-out sofa and bed with the open galley forward. On starboard is the flat screen TV with breaker panel behind, storage and an “L-ish” shaped sofa/dinette. Down the stairway to port is the master stateroom with queen berth (accessible from both sides), private head, hanging closet and numerous drawers. On starboard is the bunk bed stateroom and stack unit washer/dryer. Forward of the washer dryer is the guest head with separate stall shower. All the way forward is the VIP guest stateroom with centerline queen berth, hanging locker and drawers.
Up the stairway to the air conditioned flybridge there are two captain/navigator chairs behind the helm station and seating for a small crowd forward.
Very spacious and comfortable main salon is open to the galley and visa versa. Flat screen TV aft on starboard side easily viewed from the galley and the main salon. Main breaker panel is cleverly hidden behind the TV and easily accessed. “V” Cool window reflective treatment/coating on main salon windows. Three different window covers. Bose surround system interfaced with TV.
Very nice galley with Sub-Zero drawer refrigeration (three refrigerator, one freezer), Three-Burner Princess Glass cooktop, Sharp Carousel Microwave/Convection oven, double sink lots of counter and cabinet space. Very open to the main salon being in the galley is still part of the party!

Super clean example of a very popular convertible! With the comfort level of a great cruiser and respectable fishing ability it’s no wonder these boats are sought after. Three staterooms, galley up, large cockpit and a stairway to a huge bridge they work on so many levels. "About Time" has been lightly used, but well loved.
