location icon Portsmouth, Rhode Island
Year 1987
Length 34 ft
EMMA LEE  was purchased by her current owner in May of 2007. Though classified as a Weekender  this boat will comfortably house you for a longer voyage., she is extremely comfortable  in a head sea, and she can handle a following sea well.  The cockpit has 80 sq.ft  of open space for fishing or relaxing with ample room for coolers and guest. Of course, the interior joiner work of a Wilbur 34 is well-known as being superb, Since 2007, we have spent many weeks anchored at Block Island, as well as the Vineyard and Cape Cod , Although it may not have all of the creature comforts of some larger vessels,  the Emma Lee is a cozy, comfortable boat for two with bunks available if you find yourself with company. 
On the bridge there is seating for 8 with a new tonneau cover in 2018. Teak refinished in 2018. Stainless steel  bow rail. Down below the galley is outfitted with a 3 burner hillerange princess propane stove with a working oven that has had plenty of use and is still going strong. The galley has a large overhead bomar hatch and two  opening hatches above the counters as well.  The two 10lb propane bottles are stored in a vented cockpit locker. Although it has a Norcold TEK II dual electrtic frig, it gets little use with us as we prefer an anchorage to a slip. The V-Birth is large with a hatch overhead that lets in the ocean breeze; sleeping has never been a problem on the Emma Lee. To starboard, aft of the v-berth, is a hanging locker.  The head is a fresh water vacu flush system  with separate shower stall. Main salon has a settee to port with good storage underneath. The 6'4"settee converts to a double bunk. In the salon there are four large opening windows with screens,  a loer helm with folding taylor seat. Main salon sole is teak and holly plywood.
