That's one reason why I had been looking forward to the introduction of the 43; another is that I had reviewed her 38-foot sibling and then watched her go on to become one of Silverton's top-selling models. The 43 replaces a 41-footer and is the largest Sport Bridge to date. While Silverton's design team did a splendid job wrapping the 38's full-beam interior in an attractive package, the 43's styling is more balanced and the look is lower and leaner to my eye. Silverton promotes Sport Bridge styling as "European, however, as I suggested with the 38, there is no reason to share credit. Rakish profiles and sweeping window lines are not proprietary features and the way Silverton's design team has blended them together is distinctive and pleasing (OK, you can call it international styling if you like). I do concede that the 43's sponson-like wraparound transom platform is foreign and as it stands proud of her hull, care must be taken when navigating a tight slip.
