Silverton 36

Sydney company US Yachts recently announced the arrival of its first Silverton cruiser since being appointed the Australian distributor of Silverton Flybridge Cruisers and Ovation Motor Yachts.

According to US Yachts, the Silverton 36 is the best-selling convertible in America and the most popular model in Silverton’s history.

The 36 boasts a queen-sized bed in the elegant master stateroom and a second stateroom that sleeps two, while the main cabin features a sofa, settee and dining table as well as a flat-screen TV/DVD. The galley is very well equipped and will ensure many gourmet meals are enjoyed on board, says US Yachts. Interior accents, doors and cabinetry evoke the cherrywood decor found aboard larger yachts.

The newly-created head adds another dimension to the 36’s standard stall shower with private access. A forward windshield along with opening and screened salon windows create a light, airy atmosphere. The skipper can choose to experience the elements on the big bridge or avoid inclement weather at the optional lower helm station.

Spyboats RX22

The Spy RX22 was awarded AMIF’s Australian ski boat of the year.

A V-drive competition wake and family ski boat, the Spy RX22 is designed for waterskiers who also need the features of a dedicated wakeboard boat in both salt and fresh water.

The hull of the RX22, which features a foam-filled stringer and frame construction, also has five independent flotation tanks to meet Australian buoyancy design requirements. Spyboats are the only Australian-designed and built ski boats that are fully CAD designed, and because of this, the RX22’s build and construction quality gives fantastic performance and fuel economy, says Spyboats.

The RX22 features a bowrider layout, a centre-opening walkway and plenty of storage space under every seat to reduce clutter. Seat upholstery is double-stitched 14oz vinyl that extends from the wraparound rear lounge to the bowriding section. With an overall length of 6.7m and a 2.45m beam, the RX22 can easily entertain up to twelve people.

It also has premium quality fittings, including fold-down tower, ballast systems, quick-release racks and an impressive list of options.

The RX22 is powered by a 350hp MerCruiser Black Scorpion.
