Anybody able to identify this great looking boat?

The Mrs. and I are in Stuart Florida having a few repairs done. While dinging around the Port Salerno area just now we saw this good looking boat and circled by closer to take a look. It intrigues me. Has the lines of a much larger boat but isnít. Iím very curious and want to look these up.

I second the vote for a Wilbur 34. Built in Maine, a long-time builder with a great reputation.

Might be a pretty rare sight in Florida, but a fair number of them plying New England waters.

Definitely not a Cape Dory. I might say an Ellis, except for the absence of a quarter window on the cabin just behind the windshield. Anyway, she's a looker, all right.

Looks like the same boat in the same place!

Good eye! I think it is a Wilbur as well. Wilbur is located less than a mile from Ellis and Hinckley. A lot of pretty boats come from that area.

Yep. I've heard of them, but not sure I've seen one in the flesh. Great boat, I'm sure.

The vessel is remarkably similar to my own vessel, a 38 foot Jarvis Newman. I have owned this vessel since 2010 and is moored in Pittwater, New South Wales, where I live. See photos below.

Very similar but smaller

Yours is truly gorgeous. I am going to research this a bit further. I knew when I posted it the lack of anything around the boat to give it a size perspective, and maybe even the angle of the photo makes it appear larger than it is. Part of the beauty of the boat is it having larger boat looks but in a scaled down fashion. my wife and I are having fun differing on what the size may actually be. I say a 34 is possible as she echoes ďno way ďin my ear. She does agree that may be 28 feet but thinks 25. I say 25 is preposterously small so I will keep you folks informed on this enjoyable banter. Another dinghy ride today on a beautiful morning is in store. And Iím going to go back and snap a few more photos. It is behind a residence so maybe I will get lucky and someone will see me admiring the boat today and come out although that didnít happen yesterday. Iím not familiar with the Willard, but spent some time in southwest harbor Maine this summer, and got introduced to Ellis boats for the first time and they are quite the boat as someone has pointed out here. Not only saw their facility, but probably 6 to 8 of them and marinas are more than close proximity.

Has lines like a Duffy too. There are tons of boats with that particular style where I boat. I'm pretty sure most, if not all, are custom built Maine boats. They have very handsome lines and a robust build. It's basically one common style of a down east lobster boat with a fly bridge added.


It's like a slightly updated Orca from Jaws.

And while we are having funÖ.. another one

A few days ago we were in Indiantown marina on the St. Lucie river. May be the most expensive boatyard Iíve ever walked, and a neat marina as well. They have a huge section which appears to be where boats sadly go to die, but I am assured by the staff that everyone of them are current on their monthly rent, and if not, they eventually meet the torch or chainsaw. 😳
There are literally acres of storage, and if you are having the yard to do work, or or one of the mini and welcomed DIY folks, the boat gets moved to an almost equally expensive work part of the facility. Numerous campers and RVís with tags from all over thr country, parked under live oak trees, where people literally live and work on their boats. They even have a quite large shower facility. My wonderful wife didnít even get perturbed when I told her if anything ever happens to her Iím moving there immediately. Thereís an Ace Hardware, Tractor Supply, NAPA Auto parts and a Burger King nearby. I could be an absolute happy camper. I guess literally and figuratively. ! I also donít believe Iíve ever seen such a large conglomeration of Amazon prime and other shipped boxes. They all go to a central location in a covered area, and I guess everyone strolls there each day to see if their package has arrived for the current project.
Anyway, I saw numerous boats there I loved, but here is one I wanted to post and see if anyone knows what it could be as well.

Anyway, after going on here about that unique and wonderful spot, below is the boat Iím wondering about.

Also built near Wilbur, Ellis and Hinkley in Southwest Harbor Maine.

Certainly a Wilbur, the telltale is the painted accent stripe on the house side.

That is a Lord Nelson Victory Tug. Very cool boats! We recently had four of them owned by members in our Port Townsend Yacht Club.
