It all started on a cold day in December 1969, when John and Warren Luhrs established the Silverton Marine Corporation. In less than 40 years, the Silverton boats have become very popular and appreciated worldwide.
The company was able to preserve a tradition of craftsmanship, whereas its competitors have succumbed to other market factors contrary to product quality and reliability. Silverton has surpassed its initial image as a producer of lower category boats to become the recognized leader in its class for high quality, craftsmanship and reasonable prices. This success has been achieved thanks to Silverton’s continued ability to listening to the requests, desires and preferences of its boats owners.
With continuous investment in new manufacturing technologies, facilities, structures and sophisticated design added to the passion to excel that had pushed the same John and Warren Luhrs in the initial stages; the company is now recognized as one of the best manufacturers of medium-sized yachts – an activity that has achieved unparalleled levels of performance, comfort and quality.
Silverton believes that the realization of products of excellence is not an impossible task, but rather the result of an ongoing collaboration with the dealers, manufacturing partners, and employees.
Silverton recognizes that the success of its product lines are not fixed and immutable, but dynamic and adaptable, responding to changes in technology, in seafaring mannerisms and the needs of boat owners.
Silverton evolves while maintaining a high level of quality and authenticity.
