    Regal 3880 vs. Silverton 410-gctid814907

    I have enjoyed my Bayliner 305 but its time to move to a larger boat.

    I am torn between the Regal 3880 and the Silverton 410.

    What are some of the pros and cons of each? Which one would you go with?

    Both are good boats. Silverton is no longer in business. Regal is still building boats. That said some good friends of mine have a 2000 Silverton 351 Sedan. It is a really nice boat. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

      I'm always looking beyond our 3055 for our next boat but this little girl does everything we need right now.

      The Silverton gets my nod for the most roomy but I'm not a fan of the exterior look. Their 38 or 43 Sportbridge does it for me.

        I was torn at first but I am now leaning towards the Regal 3880 after reading reviews.

        Also, the Regal has a 250 gallon fuel tank and the Silverton has a 450 gallon fuel tank.

        I like taking my boat out frequently and so the better fuel economy with the Regal is attractive.

          . . . . nothing of any substance here, just my $0.02 . . , but I don't know that I would equate the size of the fuel tank with fuel economy . . . . believe it has more to do with what that particular model was intended to do. The Regal is more a sport boat and the Silverton is more of a cruising vessel - as in staying out on longer trips than the Regal (which is more just a weekender style) . . . but, like I said; my $0.02

            Both have the same or similar range. The silverton just requires almost twice the amount of fuel to travel the same distance

              That does not sound quite right. I assume both are gas versions with big block power? The Silverton is a much bigger boat so yes it will consume more but twice as much sounds a little much. Weight difference is around 8,000 lbs. In this size range I would definitely take a hard look at diesel powered versions if you have not already done so.

              One thing that I noticed is the 250g tank on the regal is way too small for that boat. My Avanti which was half the weight of the Regal had 200g total which was just about right. My 41 Carver has 360g.

                The Regal that I am closing on has Yanmar diesels. Hard to find specs online for the Regal. I double checked and the range for the Regal and Silverton are very similar.

                  I found specs for both boats. For the regal it is unclear if the specs are based on gas or diesel.

                  Here are the links. It looks like the Silverton gets much better range at slower speeds, 10 mph.

                    Yup Yanmar 440 was optional on that boat...
