Wilbur 70 – 1986

Rare opportunity to own a classic Wilbur Yacht with a 2015 refit. Beautiful condition from stem to stern.

From the drawing board of C. Raymond Hunt and custom built by the Lee Wilbur yard in Maine, this well-maintained yacht would make an ideal live-aboard family cruiser just by virtue of its comfortable interior arrangement plan alone. Add to that the many features usually found on larger vessels: a Library study, standup engine room, and spacious private master stateroom place EXPLORER in a class by herself.

EXPLORER was originally designed for the knowledgeable yachtsman whose requirements included solid construction of a fiberglass motor yacht that could comfortably cruise in a seaway, upwind as well as downwind. This resulted in a proven sea-kindly vessel that blended economical safe performance with the popular nononsense C Raymond Hunt style. The folding mast allows for canal and bridge transit from the East Coast to the Great Lakes.

Originally launched in 1986, she has been with the current owner since 1999. The vessel has undergone a meticulous total refit of all hull, propulsion, running gear and auxiliary machinery, electrical, electronic, plumbing (waste tanks, water maker, refrigeration, air conditioning). Deck fittings, windows and ports removed, re-plated, re-bedded, with topsides and superstructure painted, making her equivalent to a 2015 new build of a classic C. Raymond Hunt design.
