Silver Symphony is an Aquafibre Opel which started it's life at Harbour Cruisers, passed on to Swancraft before arriving at Silverline where she has been totally stripped and refitted in Silverline's style. Opels are exceptionally easy craft to handle (having hired others of the type} for two persons and being 28' 6" long often fit into the mooring gaps other types find too small. Symphony is finished in Silverlines standard livery of white with mid blue roof and deck, which is smart but subdued and like all Silverline boats exceptionally well presented. Entering from the stern there is a small well with gas locker on one side and the quiet rear mounted engine to the other. From the well you pass into the bed cabin. This has a double bed across the boat which is not as large as most Opels that have it along the length of the boat. The benefits of this arrangement however is that your partner does not have to clamber over you to make the early morning coffee! Opposite is a very large wardrobe with plenty of hanging space. The wardrobe is also the home of the small vacuum cleaner. Next to the wardrobe is a dressing table with stool, a 230v hairdryer installed under and alongside three large drawers. We then carry on through to the galley which can be a little short of storage space on some Opels but not on Symphony. Silverline have managed the galley space with a lot of thought and we found an abundance off storage areas. The cooker has four rings, perhaps a little unnecessary in a two berth boat and a sensible combined 1/2 size oven with combined grill. Opposite is a large cupboard with built in microwave and on the top working surface the electric kettle and toaster. The galley is fitted with a sink with a mixer tap and single drainer. The refrigerator is a very generous size for a boat of her size and has a freezer compartment. The galley is exceptional well equipped and cutlery of a nice standard. Some items of the inventory will really surprise like food scissors and a cheese slice. Real coffee drinkers are catered for with a cafeteria although you will have to bring your own grinder if your as fussy as me! All tableware is matching and extensive as is the glassware. The saloon is forward and has a large L shaped deep button settee in deep blue which you can really relax on and has two drawers under. A fixed round table is fitted at the L of the settee and is easily large enough for meals but is never in the way. A flat screen TV/DVD is provided also a radio with cd player. A nice feature is the additional table lamp that gives a much warmer light than the ceiling fixtures Opposite the galley is the standard toilet arrangement for this class of boat which might be a little narrow for anyone on the large side but does have adequate storage. The w.c. is rather high and really does feel like a throne! Steering position is forward and comfortable however curtains tend to restrict visibility a little, a common problem with forward drive craft. She is very responsive when navigating with little of the tail wagging often found in this style of cruiser Noise levels while under way are very subdued. There are no daily checks other than checking the gauges and the engine cooling water is being discharged while under way. Forward of the saloon through double doors is the forward well with built in seating. A very nice compact area on a fine day. Summing up Silver Symphony is an exceptionally well equipped (you really will keep on having nice little surprises) and presented boat in the mid price range and provides exceptional value. Add to that the friendly and professional attitude of Silverline who really will care about you then your holiday enjoyment should be guaranteed.
