Voyager Hardtop

I've seen several pictures of 450 Voyagers with hardtops. Anyone have an idea where they came from? They look professionally built.
Thanks

I would be willing to bet Atlantic Towers. They make a fantastic hardtop that you can't distinguish as aftermarket. I priced one for my Silverton 41C and had a really good look at them. Then I decided to throw my $20k into the new boat fund.

The 450 Voyager never came from the factory with a hardtop, however, the 460Voyager...visually identical...did. So, if it looks like a factory hardtop, it is probably a 460 rather than a 450

Kenny,

I looked at a 460 prior to buying my 506 - they are the ones without the lower helm correct? I believe they are the 3 stateroom layout....are they alled a 460GT or something like that? They are gorgeous, I probably would have bought one over my 506 if I could have located a clean one.

You are correct Lyndon...GT may have been a Canadian moniker. Down here in the "lower 48", they were just 460 Voyager. We sold only a couple of them while they were out...GREAT interior, but the exterior was dated already by the time they came out.

What a shame, they were so much more practical than the Voyageur. I would probably trade my 506 for one still.....
