The state of New Jersey has a long and proud boatbuilding heritage, and Silverton Yachts has been a major player in that marine tradition for more than four decades. Recognized as one of the premier builders of mid-sized bridge boats, the manufacturer’s model range includes a variety of styles, from convertibles to sport bridge designs, motor yachts, and two sport coupe models. The sizes range from 33 to 50 feet. Silverton is now part of the Egg Harbor/Davis/Predator group of manufacturers owned by Dr. Ira M. Trocki, and is also the parent company for Ovation Yachts. These are luxury cruising models sized at 52 and 55 feet that are designed with top-flight accommodations and features, contemporary lines and cutting-edge systems. The 52 Ovation, for instance, was one of the first production motor yachts in the world to employ triple 500 Volvo IPS engines.
