1985 61' Tollycraft PH Motoryacht

Timeless, Handsome, Rugged.  One of Ed Monk and RM "Tolly" Tollefson's most revered collaborations, the 61 still draws admiring glances wherever she cruises.  Well regarded for her efficient performance, ease of handling, superb sea keeping and wonderful accommodations, this particular 61 checks all the boxes.  Highlights include modern digital FIN STABILIZERS with touch screen control, BOW and STERN THRUSTERS, Spectra WATERMAKER and MMC electronic engine controls.  A new galley with S/S appliances and extensive shipyard interior refit was performed in 2017 to include custom oiled teak cabinetry and doors in the Master. Dual ESPAR diesel heaters and separate air conditioners along with recent electrical updates including LED multi colour under water and exterior lighting adds to the ambience.  She even has two high performance 3 person Yamaha WaveRunners on the upper deck!

 Always boathouse kept yacht in freshwater.  Yacht is the sole asset of an Alberta company so may be tax free. 75 foot by 25 foot Boathouse may be purchased separately. Assumable fresh water moorage.

    Tollycraft's timeless 61..

    We helped this owner moved up from his Tolly 48 CPMY to this magnificent 61 and it is a pleasure to work with them again.  We knew the previous owner of this vessel very well, and have an extensive understanding of her history, upgrades and operation.  

    I have been cruising on a Tolly 61 every summer season for the past nine years and can attest to how perfectly suited this hull and layout are for our local conditions.  Pilothouse forward visibility is perfect at all speeds and I find very little reason to run her from the bridge, even while docking.  Likely one of the most seaworthy yachts in her size range, the modern digital stabilizers guarantee a rock steady ride while the bow and stern thrusters make docking a non event.  

    It's remarkable, even after many years, the 61 never fails to draw admiring glances and comments from other boaters who actually 'know'...
