Available for SaleDiscovery48' 1977 Tollycraft 


Same owner since 2003. Aggressively priced to sell.

Now reduced to $129900

This time tested design by naval architect Ed Monk is a Northwest favorite. The 48' Tolly Cockpit Motor Yacht is an

ideal platform for cruising the Pacific Northwest waters to Alaska. Built on a proven semi-displacement hull, the boat is comfortable and economical at displacement speeds but can also reach cruising speeds in the mid teens as desired.

Discovery has the preferred Caterpiller 3208 naturally aspirated diesels. These engines have been well maintained, start clean and run strong.

Numerous recent upgrades include: Beautiful and practical custom carpentry in salon and lower helm station, new carpet throughout, Vac-U-Flush fresh water head in owners stateroom, isolation transformer, 2013 Garmin 12" plotters at upper and lower stations & professional detailing to hull and house.

Discovery needs a new generator and bimini top canvas. Otherwise, she is sound and will make the next owners a exceptional cruising yacht.

A great buyers opportunity, the owners wants the yacht sold.
