46' Tolley
 
Had a chance last week to visit a beautiful boat that's for sale. It's a 1970 43' Tolley that has been extended to 46'. While it is not my style of boat-I like a RPH and covered cockpit- this was one of the most, if not the most, beautifully restored and modified boats I've seen. Absolutely no expense was spared by the extremely knowledgeable owner. Don't be put off by the price as I would put this boat up against any new boat of this type. I have no personal interest in the boat having only just met the owner for dinner. Welcome to Nordic Northwest Yachts

I completely understand why they did it - you really need room for a decent dink in those cruising grounds but I think the swim platform extension is rather unsightly. Great power package though.

Tolly agreed 35 years ago the 43 was lacking some "nice to haves" and built the 48. To me the 48 remains an all time favorite.

Specs seem to be from an entirely different boat. No interior photos? I love Tollys but this is what I call a "dilettante" boat. Will be interesting to see if and what it sells for. Usually the rule of thumb is (unless you find that "miracle buyer") you get nothing back for the money poured into something like this, you just move to the head of the line for people looking at that model, age and style of boat.

Looked at the specs and they do seem to be for a different boat. I've notified my friend, who is a friend of the owner, to let him know that there seems to be a problem with the listing. He sent me another link which has photos of the interior. https://anchorage.craigslist.org/boa/5426267514.html.

I do want to emphasize that the owner is an industrial engineer type who knows boats and systems and how to do things right. He has way,way, way more money in this boat than the asking price (and probably enjoyed every minute of the project). It's worth a look.

That's an awesome boat....off to buy lotto tickets!

Two questions
1 Are all Tolly 43s with a foam cored hull?
2 Any thoughts on the open cockpit that lacks a transom?

Very practical, but that sugar scoop is a bit much for my eye.

I can think of a number of situations where I don't think I would have been very comfortable with that setup. I'd certainly want to sea trial it in a SEer off the Sand Heads.

Some other things I don't like also but would really have to see it...to be fair.

That's not a 43 Tolly hull.
It is an OLD 40 tri-cabin and yes it may have the pli-core hull.
It is completely different from a 43 or 48.
The 48 hull was developed long before the 43.

Those that have or had an old 40 tri rave about them!

When I saw "1970 43' Tolley" in the OP, then read the linked specs, I just moved on. Illustrates what I said about FSBO in another thread.

Am I right, the 43 was a 4, maybe 5 year production ('80-'85) with very small numbers?

Tolly Roger 02-19-2016 11:46 AM

From what I have learned so far......

The 43 was built between 1981 and 1985 and about 48 were made.

The market was moving toward a sleeker look which led to the 44 design first launch was 1986. About 142 were made. In the last few years the 44 turned into the 45. I don't have a number of 45's built.

The success of the 44 actually stopped production of the 48 in about 1987 however it was revived in the early 90's under the new ownership and with some changes (one of which is a cored hull). I have a figure of 98 48's built in total with the first launch in 1976.

Thanks TR, that fits with what I was thinking. I'm surprised there may have been 48 produced over the 4 years considering how many units overall where coming out of Kelso at that time.

I still like the 40' sedan and it would be one of the few ladder boats I would consider today.

Sailor of Fortune 02-19-2016 01:47 PM

Beautiful rig. I'm not a fan of fly bridges but this boat and the Cheoy lee Seamaster 46 are both boats that I like with FB's.
Thye open aft deck is the Tolly's best feature IMHO.

About that open transom....

What would happen in a big following sea, or a coming into an inlet with scary stacked up waves chasing you? Outrun them I guess?

My boat has a transom but it is very slow so I'm not outrunning anything. I've not encountered an angry inlet yet or a big following sea, so I do wonder how I (and the boat) will handle it. It does have a big rudder so I'm hoping I can keep it straight.

My point. I also hope that door to the back "deck" is very watertight.

dimer2 02-20-2016 08:42 AM

The transom door should open out and have an angled edge so any water hitting the door from outside, just forces it tightly closed. One that opens inward (like mine) would just burst open.

Sailor of Fortune 02-20-2016 08:59 AM

I think the "Big crashing following sea scenario is way over played. This is a coastal recreational yacht, hardly a heavy wx sort of boat. Nobody mentions the fwd windows "blowing out" in those same huge seas. That would worry me more than down flooding from astern.

I agree. I just brought that up because I have never encountered a big following sea or really any big sea, and I don't know how my boat will handle it.

stubones99 02-20-2016 09:53 AM

They would have been better off adding a small swim platform and a Freedom Boat Lift. The result would be the same without the need for the davit, and not put that plexi aft door at risk of a big wave coming aboard.

Plus with a boat lift, it's out of the water when you want it out, and stable when you board, then drop the boat in the water and motor away. The remote control is quite nice.
