1981 Tollycraft Cockpit Motor Yacht

Olympia, Washington


The timeless but updated 48' Tollycraft was one of the most popular models ever built. In fact, Tollycraft retired the model in the late 80's but had to bring it back in the early 90's after strong demand.   Telltale is a great example of the quality and elegance of the Tollycraft. The walk around side decks are equipped with high bulwarks that makes it safe for adults, kids and animals. Inside, you will find a queen walk around bed for the master, a large salon and a wonderful galley with eating area. Docking will be easy with a bow thruster and you will stay warm in the winter months with a diesel furnace.

Telltale was carefully loved and maintained by the same family for 27 years.  This story and the well maintained boat is what the current owner of 5 years purchased her.  She is now ready for her new family to continue to enjoy her for years to come.

 Some of Telltale's highlights are:

  • Twin 3208 CAT's - 210hp
  • Upgraded Simrad Electronics
  • Upgraded Blue Sea Electrical Panel
  • Upgraded Domestic Toilets
  • Diesel Hydronic Furnace
  • Wesmar Bow Thruster
  • Full Flybridge Enclosure
  • Recent Oil Samples all Good.

Don't let this traditional Tollycraft slip away.
