Silverton’s 43 Super Sport maximizes live-aboard space by raising the forward deck walkways to flybridge level – an original Silverton design feature now emulated by other manufacturers. The bridge is massive, covering almost half the overall boat length and extending over the cockpit, keeping that area dry on damp days and shaded from the hot midday sun.  Up top, the bridge provides vast topside entertainment space, complete with a wrap-around passenger lounge and wet bar with fridge.  Sun pad areas are provided on both foredeck and bridge, and the bow area is accessed from either side of the bridge via Silverton’s trademark “SideWalks”.  The self-draining cockpit has transom door access to a large swim platform, molded step access to the bridge and sliding door access to the salon.      

The full-beam main salon is roomy and bright with natural light flooding through four opening windows, two on each side for great cross-ventilation.  Rich cabin finishes include solid cherry wood joinery, Corian countertops, UltraSuede headliners, UltraLeather upholstery and Amtico hardwood flooring.  Passageway doors and cabinet/drawer face-frames are solid cherry for maximum service life.  Use of high-gloss finishes for horizontal wood surfaces, and satin for verticals, provides subtle contrast throughout.  The salon sofa sits opposite a double incliner and converts to a double berth when additional sleeping capacity is needed.  An entertainment centre with upgraded Bose stereo and retractable flat panel TV is nicely concealed when not in use.  Forward of the salon is a well equipped galley with full-size Nova Kool fridge, microwave/convection oven, and a two-burner electric range.  A raised dinette sits opposite the galley with u-shaped seating and a great view of the interior and exterior surroundings.  Stepping down from the galley, a companionway leads to the master and guest staterooms.  There is a combined head/shower to port, and a guest stateroom with twin berths to starboard.  The master stateroom occupies the entire bow area with an island queen berth and separate head and shower compartments.      

Sugar Daddy II is equipped with Volvo’s IPS 600 diesel propulsion system with joy stick control and counter rotating, forward-facing pod drives that offer significant benefit over straight shaft inboards.  Volvo IPS provides major fuel savings at cruising speeds, increased range, reduced CO2 emissions, reduced noise and vibration, and higher top-end speeds.   Volvo states IPS provides performance improvements of 30-50%* in several areas over similar planing hulls equipped with traditional shaft drives. Volvo rates their IPS drives in terms of equivalent shaft-drive performance, so the twin 435hp IPS 600’s in this boat provide the performance equivalent of two 600hp conventional shaft drive diesel engines, and with significantly lower fuel consumption and better maneuverability. Browse some of the third-party IPS 600 boat test reports available online and you will quickly come to appreciate the huge benefits of IPS technology.
