VERY GOOD CONDITION, BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT! Here is your chance to own a beautiful classic motor yacht that is in very good condition. Her attractive, glossy green hull will turn heads as you make your way in, out and around SE Alaska. The interior features fabulous woodwork and a very usable layout. Downeast hull designs are known for their soft ride. They ride at relatively flat angles at all speed ranges and perform very well in choppy waters. This is a great boat if you are looking for the perfect balance of hominess and fishability.

One of the first things you might notice on this classic yacht is her beautifully maintained interior, including her fantastic woodwork. The teak deck is waxed and glimmering. Windows have lovely opaque curtains and several are sliding and screened to allow natural airflow throughout the cabin. On starboard in the main cabin, you will find her spacious helm with cushioned seat. The helm is expansive with everything you need in its own appointed location. Aft of the helm seat is a chart table with seating for two and a Waeco freezer below. To port, friends and family can enjoy the cruise on the cushioned four-person settee with movable dining table. The settee berths two and has roomy storage beneath. A cabinet forward makes a great storage spot for games, pillows, and other items to make your voyage more comfortable and fun. Forward and down into the bow is the lovely port galley with a stainless-steel Saward three-burner propane stove with oven, and a mid-size Kenmore refrigerator. The galley also has oodles of drawer storage and cubbies and a deep single basin stainless steel sink. Across the companionway is the vessel head, which has plenty of knee room and counterspace, a hand sink, and a spacious separate shower stall. In the bow is the v-berth for two. A curtain separates the v-berth from the rest of the cabin interior for privacy.
This boat model has a teak swim step with new boarding latter and an expansive cockpit with non-skid decking. An auxiliary engine is mounted to the swim deck. The entire aft deck can be nicely protected with its canvas covering. The starboard cockpit helm has engine controls, a GPS chart plotter and depth sounder. You ll also find plenty of in-deck storage in the cockpit. The Zodiac Evinrude kicker mounts to a storage bracket in the cockpit and has a very attractive cover for when it s not in use. Wide side decks with non-skid surfacing, high bow railing, and plenty of grab rails bring you to the bow. The v-berth cabin roof had non-skid surfacing, as well as cargo tie downs if you need them. The 1990 Zodiac Hurricane mounts on the cabin top with help from the manual block and tackle dinghy hoist. A matching cover keeps the Zodiac in great condition. If you are using this Wilbur s huge deck for fishing, she comes with a single Scotty 12v downrigger and Flojet saltwater washdown system for the day s end.
A 375-horsepower Caterpillar 3208 TA diesel engine provides the power behind The Wilbur. She has a cruise speed of 9 to 11 knots and has a top speed of 16 at 2,600 rpm. Her two aluminum fuel tanks carry a total of 200 gallons of fuel and gives her a range of 250 miles. Her single engine design cuts fuel and engine maintenance costs in half while providing a keel that gives great protection to the propeller and rudder. She also comes with a 1992 9.9 horsepower Suzuki auxiliary engine. Anchor quickly and easily and wherever you need to with the 33-pound Bruce anchor on 200 feet of chain, 150 feet of line, and a Simpson Lawrence Model 1000 Horizon winch.

When you are at the dock, plug The Wilbur into the 30-amp shore power. Has a Guest 40-amp battery charger, two alternators (one is a spare), and a 2 kw Xantrex Freedom inverter/charger. Her Seabird 3.5 kw generator set has 1,582 hours on it.

For communications, you have an ICOM IC-M422 VHF. An electric wiper at each of the three windshields keeps your sightline free of water droplets.
This vessel is well designed and also well built. It has a wide beam, and no problems are foreseen in this area as long as prudent navigational and seamanship practices are followed.
