1988 Silverton 40 Convertible

Hunter 40 waiting for you at the dock  ......  

One owner boat. Always kept in freshwater in Milwaukee, WI. Stored inside and covered in the winter.

As you enter from the cockpit, the salon and the entire interior is light, bright and roomy. The 14' beam and the light wood interior combine to give you a roomy living area (as well as a great ride).

The salon starts with a convertible sofa is to port. This converts easily to a double berth. The sofa bed was reupholstered with Ultra Leather in Silver Pearl in 2001. Forward of the sofa is the icemaker, and a built-in storage cabinet wrapping around to the steps.

Across to starboard, you find 2 comfortable upholstered chairs. Storage cabinets with louvered doors and a top shelf for displaying your treasures, line the entire side, wrapping around to the steps down to the galley and dinette. Both sides have windows of tempered glass, with screens. The custom blinds are of a material that reflects light, giving unusual options for privacy and light. They are the New Optix privacy blinds, with the cord in the center for easy adjustment, 2 upholstered valances over the blinds, 2 upholstered angled front panels, custom draperies, and drapery track 2001 from Custom Marine Interiors

The forward windshield has a cover for privacy and coolness, that is easily removed when desired. The forward interior hatches all have screens.

Stepping down, you find the galley to port. Wrapping around you start on your left, with lots of storage and counter space. She has a deep S.S. sink with hot and cold pressure water. More storage, and more counter space ... then across the back, you find a built-in microwave, toaster oven, 2 burner stove and a large refrigerator with freezer. She comes with coffee pot, toaster, even a full set of dinnerware and placemats. The floor was completely redone in Pergo in 2000.

Across to starboard is the dinette (which converts to a double berth) and features storage under both seats. Custom mirrored walls were installed across from the dinette on the walls between the galley and the head. These increase dramatically the open feeling and the light on the passageway going forward.

Next forward and to port is the head. The head is elegant and spacious with a separate sit-down shower stall with sump.

Forward is the master stateroom. She has a large double pullman berth to port, with cabinet wrapping around on the starboard side. Two large overhead hatches, and two opening ports with screens, make this a comfortable and airy stateroom. Lots of lights, controls for the air or heat, TV and lots of storage. New custom bedspread (queen) and matching pillow shams, extra decorator pillows, 2 complete sets of fitted sheets purchased 2002 from Custom Marine interiors.

This boat was purchased with the optional Decor Package from Silverton
