The Silverton 34 Express is an updated version of the company’s original 34-foot Express (1987–89) with an integrated swim platform and reworked interior. Like all Silverton’s before or since, the 34 Express was priced at the affordable end of the market and aimed at family boaters with an eye for value. The sleek styling is partially the result of eliminating the cabin windows—ventilation and natural lighting come from six small deck hatches located just forward of the windshield. Below deck, the no-frills interior is a tasteful blend of earth-tone fabrics and off-white furnishings. Privacy curtains separate both sleeping areas from the main salon, and the head compartment features a separate stall shower. Galley storage is a plus, and the interior is fully carpeted. An L-shaped sun lounge is opposite the helm on the bridge deck, and the aft cockpit features a wet bar, transom door, and a bench seat at the stern. Additional features include a hydraulically operated engine access hatch, foredeck sun pad, radar arch, fender storage racks, and integral bow pulpit. No lightweight, Crusader 350hp V-drive gas engines cruise the Silverton 34 Express at 18–20 knots (high 20s top).
