DESCRIPTION: SOLO is a well-equipped 34’ Wilbur Flybridge Cruiser with extended cabin and flybridge extension over cockpit. The cockpit cover is also used for carrying the dinghy. This 34’ is one of only a few built in a galley-up configuration, with the normal galley area used for a large desk (or navigation station). SOLO was built by Lee Wilbur for the present owner, who chose the equipment based on years of cruising experience. The Caterpillar has been maintained carefully, with the oil at every change analyzed by the Caterpillar laboratory. All maintenance records are available. An extensive collection of spares for almost every system on the boat will be included. SOLO was the Lee S. Wilbur Co. showboat at the 1994 Miami Boat Show. The present owner is retiring from cruising after 38 years on the water.
