I like it.

I looked at the website, that is a MUCH smaller boat than I imagined. Still interesting I guess.

At present most interested in a N40,43,46 or 47 or a DD. Surprisingly those weve seen are either poorly maintained or set up for coastal. Fine with a coastal boat as refit to passage maker can be done but not with a poorly maintained boat. So we wait and engage in other activities.

A-The Tollycraft 48 is a semi displacement hull with huge engines for my program. It is a great boat but lacks range and the belt and suspenders approach required for long term distance cruising. Our fall migration is 1500 nm on the rhumb line . Expect 2k. Often Bermuda isnt a good obligate break point. You can do it by going down the east coast then out along the island chain as an alternative. Do that once and you wont want to do it again. Its ok to do it that way going home in the spring as its with current and wind behind you but not down. Heaving and pitching isnt much fun. Fuel costs have a huge variance. Good to be able to pick your spots. Always amazed by how much stuff and weight you add to a boat when the program is self sufficient cruising. Full displacement makes sense. With all due respect although a fine boat it would be a poor choice.
48' Tolly - Coastal cruiser... not trans oceanic.

Agreed, but it's more of a $50K toy. At 16' and 4'8" beam, your 4 passengers better be on the svelte side!

Take a look at the Arksen 45’. Think that’s some cool engineering and serves the needs of the way many use their boats. Less $$ than a Zlander as well.

I'll bet the A/B ratio is bad bad bad.

No mention of generator (s)
Send me a note when the price drops to $50K

I find it interesting. Fits right in the Coeur d'Alene scene.

Monty's Cruisin' isn't your average runabout. It's a spectacular 70-foot, three story houseboat that took 18 months to build.
"It's a 4,700 square foot ultimate houseboat," Bill Hill with Emerald Bay Custom Boathouses said.

Ultimate is an understatement for Don Gross' houseboat. His custom built, 62,000 pound house boat is fully loaded with two fireplaces, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two elevators, a special pool, wheelchair accessible hallways and glass deck railings. The price tag for "Monty's Cruisin'" is around $1.6 Million.

"We've been really blessed that we had the opportunity to build a boat that's handicap accessible who we love very much," Don said.

"Monty's Cruisin'" was designed and named after Don Gross' son. Gross, who runs a mental health care company, says his 39-year-old son is confined to a wheelchair because of a debilitating illness.

"It was a labor of love for their son. It was an amazing story. It got us. It was inspiring," Bill Hill said.

Built by a California company, the boat was trucked in piece by piece and then put back together at the Coeur d'Alene Yacht Club.

As "Monty's Cruisin'" gets last minute tender loving care and its first launch into Lake Coeur d'Alene a sense of accomplishment comes over those who have helped assemble Monty's boat.

"It's just like a race car driver winning the race, we just won the race here," Bill Hill said.
Ok, now I feel bad poking fun at it. I do hope they got good use out of it for their kid and friends.

And that one appears to be one of the more affordable in their stable

Don't know much about Kelvin engines. I guess they are still supported by a company which bought out the company which bought out the company which bought out the original company, in Scotland.
