Maine Boats, Home & Harbors - Wilbur 46' Launch Day
"Every once in awhile a project comes along that incorporates all the benefits that a Maine-built boat can deliver. The Betsy, launched by Wilbur Yachts on May 15, 2010, after a close to three-year-long building process was one of those projects. As the boat's owner, Dr. Klein said, “This project combines the classic lines of a Maine lobsterboat with modern technology judiciously implemented to produce a 'green' boat.”"

Soundings March 2011

“I was able to buy the perfect boat.” Allan LaFrance says it with conviction. He’s had his 31-foot Down Easter for only a season, but it’s already opened up a whole new world of boating.

Bar Harbor Times- Wilbur 46' Launch
"Southwest Harbor — In 1979, there was an article in a yachting magazine about a boat called Annalokin, which was built by the Lee S. Wilbur Co. in Manset for the man who founded Friendly Ice Cream Corporation, Curtis Blake.

A boating enthusiast clipped that article because he liked the looks of the yacht so much."

Fifth Times A Charm
I'm told it was a picture-perfect, Indian summer morning in mid-November when Jerry and Diane Lynch launched their new 38 Wilbur/Duffy Lonrach--the perfect day for a boat whose namesake means "brilliant" in Gaelic, to ease her hunter-green hull into the crisp, Maine water for her maiden voyage to her homeport in Cape Cod, link to read article
