The small family shipyard Silvertone Marine was founded in 1969 in Arlington by the Lourses brothers, John and Warren. The company started out as simple, inexpensive yachts, and over time has grown to become a serious player in the small convertible cruiser segment, suitable for both recreational and offshore fishing.
In 2010, Silvertone Marine and its sister companies Mainship and Luhrs accounted for 5% of the US domestic market in this segment. The shipyard is also known outside its homeland, with about 80 dealers in 40 countries. However, during the global economic crisis of the late 2000s, when the demand for luxury boats fell sharply, the company, like the entire Morgan Industries group of which it was then a member, began to experience serious financial problems, and, in the end, was involved in the bankruptcy process. In February 2012, the Silvertone plant in Millville was closed. However, thanks to the efforts of Egg Harbor Yachts, which bought it back in 2012, the company resumed production.
Silvertone yachts are assembled at the mill in Millville, New Jersey, on the east coast of the United States. The company is constantly improving production technologies and is open to the latest achievements of the industry, but at the same time strives to preserve the best production traditions of the past. Computer modeling and questioning of target user groups are actively used.
Today Silverton produces 13 models ranging from 9.9 to 15.7 m in length. Flybridge cruisers are represented by the Convertible, SportBridge and MotorYachts lines, the hardtop variants are implemented in the SportCoupe family; the T-series yachts stand apart - sportfishers, popular on the east coast of the United States for sport fishing boats. Some of the models are available in both luxury and basic configurations.
