Canoe Cove 46 vs Tollycraft 44

Greetings all. My wife and I have been scouring the Atlantic coast from Nova Scotia to Florida to find our next boat. Home cruising ground will be Atlantic Canada thru New England with plans to do "the loop" in 2016.

To date our front runner is the Tolly 44 CPMY. It has a livable layout, a reputation of quality build, seakindly and "somewhat" economical on fuel. There are about a dozen listed on this coast and we have been on board several. Our plans are to select and view a few more and make an offer on the best of class .... very soon.

THEN I see a newly listed Canoe Cove 46 CPMY. Looks like it may very well fit the bill.

As both of these are West Coast boats and I am an East Coast boy I was wondering if any of you PNW folks could provide any comparison of the CC and Tolly particularly around seaworthiness, fuel economy and overall quality.

Cheers from Nova Scotia

Greetings,
Mr. SG. Dear, oh dear...You miss my point. Make sure the beer fridge is FULL and tied down. If'n it's empty, what's the point of the tie-down?

If the CC46 you are looking at is Lady North, the Tolly is a far better boat. Canoe Cove did build some good boats, the early hulls were licensed from Bertram. But their later stuff is all bad, ugly proportions, top-heavy, trying to push too much interior on too small a hull, overloaded.

Stick with looking at Tollys.....

The Tolly 44 came with several different motor choices. The Cat 3208 is my choice from the original install list. The nicest one I've seen of recent had a Cummins repower. I've seen some very nice ones that come from the Portland area - boat house kept in fresh water for their entire lives.

I second Tad's thoughts when comparing the two.

We looked at the Tolly a number of years ago, we ended up with the 44Viking version instead. But we really didn't want the lower helm the Tolly came with. You probably want it being from NS.

The Ocean Alexander 44 is very similar to the Tolly...both Monk designs.

Thanks All - Cummins Premium?

Good feedback - thanks.

The majority of Tolly 44's we have looked are CAT 3208 with the exception of a very nice Cummins 6BTA 330 repower done in 2008.

It is priced higher than most of her sisterships - any advice on the premium I should expect to pay for a vessel with the 08 Cummins?

FWIW, Canoe Cove is Canadian so limits your commercial possibilities in the US. Probably doesn't matter to you, might on resale.

Agreed with the others that CC does not enjoy the same reputation level for quality or seaworthiness in the PNW as Tolly or OA. The Canadians seem to buy them though
