A high specification example of this extremely popular flybridge cruiser. Built in 1988 and fitted with
2 x TAM D41A 200hp diesels on shaft drives, and in the most popular dinette version. This vessel has a
history of meticulous owners and is probably one of the finest examples current available.
Six berths in two cabins, Offset double forward cabin with dresser and wardrobe, dinette converts to very large
double bed, Settee opens to third double bed making this a versatile family boat. Fitted with powerful bow
thruster and hydraulic trimtabs she is extremely easy to handle and manouver. Electric up/down anchor winch
all controls are duplicated at both helm positions. With both turbos replaced 2010 she has no trouble reaching
her maximum cruising speed of approx 24 knots.
We purchased Silver C eight years ago and have covered over 4000 miles since then, finding her comfortable
and economical but with power in reserve. We replaced the cockpit canopy in 2012 and have recently replaced
the full windscreen / side window covers with lined covers. We cruise all year round so the 4 kw eberspacher
blown air heating with 7 day timer is essential and has just been fully serviced (£350 with main dealer) ready
for winter. (Unused since recent service). Silver C has a folding radar arch with ratheon radar and electronic
tv aerial / radar reflector on the mast. The arch can be operated with one hand thanks to 2 x hydraulic struts
and heavy duty stainless hinges. The jabsco toilet was replaced this year and the whole boat has conventional
lighting plus high and low level led lighting throughout, including all cupboards, lockers and lazarette and
including led inspection lighting for the engine compartment together with 2 x high power inspection lights .
Access to the engine compartments is via 2 x hydraulic assisted hatches in the saloon and quick assess to the
glass topped raw water filters / pumps / fan belts etc can be made by raising the hydraulic assisted galley steps.
This is unique to this model as is brilliant for making essential quick engine checks whilst under way. The
engine compartment is fitted with 2 x 300 watt tube heaters for winter use and the usual automatic fire
extinguishers under the floor. Engines fire up immediately and have been 100% reliable due to regular
servicing, oil and filter changes. The 4 x batteries were replaced 2014 with heavy duty 110 ampere sealed
units. There is a Sterling 30 amp intelligent battery charger installed in the engine compartment and a further
automatic battery charger dedicated to the bowthruster / electric winch battery which is housed under the
forward double bed. This battery is also used to power the flat screen tv and digital radio in the forward
bedroom. The galley comprises twin sinks, 2 burner hob /oven/grill with 12 volt and 240 volt fridge. Smoke
detector installed and split level lighting, with ample cupboard space, ventilation and racks. Hot water is
provided via pressurised calorifier powered via port engine and with mains 240 volt immersion heater.
The dinette has seating for four with large lockers under
the seating and blown air heating via outlet under the table, with decorative feature above the seating with
concealed led lighting and deep wardrobe space via 2 x sliding doors. The polished wood table lowers to make
a large double bed with 2 x infill cushions provided.
The toilet / shower compartment has recessed arched
sink with shower above, new Jabsco sea toilet, and toiletry stowage locker above. Automatic entry lights and
led strip lighting / fluorecent lighting for mirror use. The shower has recently replaced automatic electric pump
The lounge area comprises L shaped deep seating which
converts to make the third double bed. Warm air heating is directed into the main cabin area which also comes
with drinks cabinets, storage cabinets and the lower helm position. The curtains also have low level led
illumination under the pelmets and extend across the windscreen to give privacy between the dinette area and
the lounge. There is a new flat screen 24” hd tv installed on the wall and cd / radio installed in the lower helm
dashboard. The four way cd/radio also relays to the upper helm position.
