I am looking at a 1993 Silverton Aft Motor Yacht with 454 Crusaders. Anybody have any experience with this model?

I have owned two Silvertons, a 1988 40' convertible and a 1999 42' aft, and have been very satisified with both boats. I have not experienced the list that you describe. It is my opinion, and only my opinion, that the smaller aft cabins look to be somewhat top heavy and might be more sensitive to lateral weight distribution. Considering basic physics, it is obvious that the higher the center of gravity, the more sensitive the boat will list to one side due to uneven weight distribution port to starboard.
I have talked to several owners of the 34 Aft and they were very satisfied with the boats. I have been on several 34 Afts and they are great boats in my opinion.
As I recall one issue with some of these, is that some have had to replace the gas tanks. I don't know if only certain years are involved years

you'd think not, but they certainly do on my 34C--same hull as the 34 aft cabin.

I'm guessing at 8 mph, trim tabs don't have much effect at all.
Gregory S Posted - Sep 05 2013 : 16:23:15
were the tabs set equally to begin with? typically a very stable ride. What do you consider a big guy? Put enough weight on one side of any fly bridge boat and you won't be level.

I did use the trim tabs but didn't think that I should have to. One big guy was on the bridge and one was on the rear deck.
Gregory S Posted - Sep 05 2013 : 10:39:45
No, unless thet are really heavy and on the flybridge. Did you try leveling with trim tabs?

Boat is very clean, has low hours,and runs well. My concern is that while running at about 8mph, the boat was leaning towards the side with some heavy passengers. They moved and it evened out. I don't get that happening on my Carver with a narrower beam and I was wondering if that is normal for that hull. Just seemed unstable for a 34 foot boat.

Same hull and motors as my 94 34 Conv. What do you want to know?
