Tollycraft was founded in 1936 by R.M. Tollefson. Tollycraft began as a small regional builder of cruisers for the Pacific Northwest Market. The company was well known for producing extremely well built boats with unmatched sea keeping characteristics and impeccable fit and finish. The overall build is so nice that the brand was labled as "the Cadillac of Yachts" by legendary Naval Architect Ed Monk.

The Tollycraft 57 is an update to the well respected 53.In many respects the two boats very similar, but the extra cockpit space of the 57, as well as the increased cruising range were notable improvements from the original. She was built on an efficient semi-displacement hull with a solid fiberglass bottom and mega-wide 17-foot, 3-inch beam.






Stepping inside from the cockpit, you will find a massive salon that rivals that of many 70 foot motoryachts, thanks to the 17'3" beam. Every living space onboard the vessel has been updated to the highest standards and the salon is no exception. To Port is an extremely large curved sofa with ample storage built in and tons of spare parts for the vessel. To the starboard side is a large Wet bar with granite countertop. Forward is the entertainment system with surround sound, swivel mounted flat screen T.V. and storage below.

Forward and center is an etched glass piece of gorgeous wall art that is backlit.

Forward and to port is a custom rod storage area, as well as a door to access the Port bow, without walking out and around the main starboard pilothouse door.

The salon is climate controlled by a new reverse cycle AC unit, and all of the lighting has been upgraded to LED with all new wiring and switch panels. At the time of the refit all new headliner was installed as well as new carpet, upholstery and Granite.
