Actually, Silverton is one of the most famous boat manufacturers in the United States. This company is specialized in yacht and luxury boats. The dream began in the 1800s when a German immigrant Henry Luhrs arrived to the United States with advance knowledge in the outfitting of trading ships; eventually he owned a chandlery and a ship. Years later his grandson inherited this great love to ships and continued with the family business of building and repairing cruisers and fishing boats on the New Jersey coast. This way, Henry and his sons, Jhon and Warren constructed more than thousand ships a year.

In 1965 the company Henry Luhrs Sea Skiffs was sold to a timber conglomerate "Bangor Punta". This was the point to begin again, the brothers Jhon and Warren started a new company buying a small builder named Silverton Sea Skiffs, they followed the techniques of ship construction that their father knew. The company constructed ships, boats and yachts. By demand, the company moved to Millville, NJ. At the same period, the brothers founded two new companies more.
