Wolverine is a 78' Burger flybridge cruiser. She resembles the classic style of the 1930's Wall street commuters, but with all the amenities of a modern yacht. This is a rare Burger with a factory cockpit, not an add on, so propellers and rudders are in the correct place. She can be boarded from a floating dock from the swim platform and cockpit, then up a set of steps to the aft saloon with L seating and bar.

Once on the main deck there is easy access to the foredeck seating area and the trunk cabin sunning area (much safer than many yachts because its about 4' above the main deck). From the side deck the aft saloon can be entered from the wing doors, port and starboard, or the sliding pilothouse doors. From the pilot house there is stairs to the well equipped flybridge.

A few steps down from the pilothouse is the lower saloon which can be used for dining. Next forward is the galley (lower saloon level) and crew quarters for two and engine room access and washer and drier. Aft of the lower saloon down, a set of gradual steps, is the master stateroom, centerline king berth with ensuite head. Forward are two over size twin bed guest staterooms with ensuite heads. The starboard guest stateroom head has a second door to serve as a day head. The original rich walnut joiner work is still in good condition.

Upper Saloon:

Aft L lounge seating port and starboard sides with 2 hi-low cocktail tables.
Desk forward to port
All the way forward on center is a bar with a power lift TV
Port and starboard wing doors
Center stern companionway to cockpit with two large sliding windows
Port and starboard center sliding windows.
The upper saloon opens up to lots of fresh air via the wing doors, side and stern sliding windows.

Galley: located forward and on the same level as the lower saloon. Teak and holly high gloss sole, GE Profile 4 burner cooktop with oven, KitchenAid dishwasher, KitchenAid refrig/freezer, microwave, large stainless sink

Fly Bridge Features

Accessed from the pilothouse via a very user friendly safe ladder

Engine Room and Mechanical Features

In 2001 this boat as Silver Seas was delivered to Rybovich in West Palm Beach to have both main engines removed and replaced. The original 12V71's had about 10,000-12,000 hours on them at the time according to her then captain. Records show that the current motors have slightly less than 5,000 running hours.
