"Emma Caroline II"
Melbourne, Florida, United States
The Silverton 453 is a distinctive heavily built yacht with a high-freeboard profile. She will appeal to boaters more concerned with a condo-style interior than styling aesthetics. The style is what makes her so spacious. The walkaround side decks have been replaced with staircases on both sides. Silverton calls these sidewalks resulting in a full beam cavernous interior that rivals much larger yachts. She is equipped with a very innovative three-stateroom, two-head floorplan, a layout made possible by raising the galley and dinette forward of the salon. The amidships VIP stateroom of the 453 is as big as the master stateroom aft and both have walkaround queen size berths. The entire interior is tastefully finished with rich cherrywood joinery. A wet bar is standard on the aft deck, and the flybridge has lounge seating aft of the helm. Additional features include a pilothouse deck door, hydraulic swim platform, and large engine room. Twin Diamond series Cummins diesels cruise the Silverton 453 MY at 18 knots (low 20s top).
With most aft cabin motor yachts, one pulls up the salon floor to access the engine room. Not so with the Silverton 453. This yacht has a proper walk-in engine room that one enters from the VIP stateroom.
The main saloon is quite comfortable and is accessed through a wide sliding door from the aft deck and down four steps. To port you will find the Entertainment Center, liquor cabinet, and large recliner. Across the saloon to starboard is a large L-shaped Flex Steel Settee with adjustable recliners. Steps leading down to the companion way and forward staterooms are to port, and a galley bar with twin stools separate the saloon from the raised galley forward.
The galley is located two steps up and forward of the saloon. This gives the galley a great view through the exterior windows but also affords excellent access to the saloon. A L-shaped dinette to starboard and features a unique folding seat that gives access to a pilot house door that opens to the starboard side deck area of the fore deck.
The spacious three stateroom layout will easily sleep eight or more. Two in the aft master stateroom, two in the queen size VIP stateroom, and two in the forward stateroom’s over/under V berth. Two more are possible on the sofa in the main saloon.
The aft master is down four steps from the saloon level and is entered through a centerline sliding door. The island queen berth is on center line. A large cedar lined closet is to starboard along with a dresser with mirror and drawers. The master head is to port with a hinged privacy door, cherry cabinets with solid counter tops. Added to the spacious feel of the boat is a large shower and tub in the master head.
The VIP and forward staterooms are accessed by a port side companionway which features hull side storage and a washer and dryer. The VIP stateroom is amidships and features an island queen berth, accessible from either side of the bed. This VIP stateroom is large with much better headroom than might be expected, cedar lined hanging lockers and a great deal of storage. The guest head is forward of the VIP stateroom with an entrance from the VIP as well as an entrance from the companionway. This head has a basin, stall shower and toilet.
The third stateroom is forward and features an over/under V-berth, drawer storage and a cedar lined hanging locker.
The flybridge is accessed by molded steps from the aft deck and foredeck. The flybridge features a centerline helm seat with companion seats on either side of the helm seat. There is also a very large bench seat aft of the helm area. The full Eisenglass enclosure features U-zips.. The foredeck is reached from the flybridge by steps on either side of the helm and features a forward-facing settee and large port and starboard enclosed storage boxes.
The best entrance to the Silverton 453 is made from the TNT hydraulic lift swim platform up the fiberglass steps to the deck. The aft deck has a fiberglass hardtop, full enclosure and large port and starboard access doors. The aft deck is set up with a wet bar with plenty of storage, solid surface counter with sink basin, refrigerator and carpeting.
