Broker's Comments

Tollycraft is a well respected name in classic boating, and this craft is a fine example why... The aqua accents from the 60's really bring me back... The hull construction is typical Tollycraft sturdy... I felt the airyness in the galley due to the large windows and great layout... For cruising she is set up very adequately with electronics, a very safe and stable boat... The 318 Chrysler fired right off, very quiet, clean, and well maintained... The cockpit enclosure with side curtains is in very nice condition... I wouldn't hesitate to take this boat to the Canadian Gulf Islands and would be most comfortable...
