Silverton Runs Aground in Coeymans Hollow

An eleven meter Silverton sport cruiser ran aground at Coeymans Hollow on the Hudson River on the morning of eleven May.  A resident of the area, the spots where difficult to see because at the time of grounding it was high tide.  Unfortunately it got worse for the Silverton cruiser as when trying to pull out in reverse it also blew one engine.  According to reports the Silverton was just launched some minutes prior and was doing sea trials.  
The Silverton in this grounding is a 34 Express second version produced from 1990 to 94.  The Silverton 34 Express offered an interior with a double berth forward and a dinette to port side sleeping four and was powered by twin Crusaders 330hp on V-drive shafts as standard. The original Silverton 34 Express debuted in 1987, with this updated version adding an integrated bathing platform aft.
