. Regarded by many as one of the most successful Northwest cruising motor yachts ever, the iconic Tollycraft 48 Cockpit Motor Yacht owes its fine reputation to the brilliant collaboration of naval architect Ed Monk Jr. and R M 'Tolly' Tollefsons' sensible and heavily experienced approach to yacht design and execution. With the Tolly 48, Mr. Tollefson and Monk created an incredibly rugged hull design skewed towards exceptional seakeeping performance in most conditions, with a balanced, low profile deckhouse that offers amazing livability,natural light, visibility, comfort and space.
Polaris One is a unique 48. Shed kept from new, she exhibits astonishing perfection in her cosmetic condition. A continuous, exhaustive process of care and maintenance with her second owner has seen ALL surfaces, bilges, mechanical, bright work and systems placed in a beyond new and improved state.
Tolly Tollefson selected the 48 for his last (of many) yachts. He had a custom built hard top fabricated for himself for it as he felt it would be one of the only areas that such a well honoured design could be improved. Polaris One has a magnificent enclosed bridge/ lounge inspired by Mr. Tollefsons own drawings, but executed in lighter composite fibreglass materials with a stronger emphasis on comfort and luxury.
Polaris One has a custom built 60 by 25 foot boathouse which is maintained with the same obsessive attention to detail as the yacht itself. No co brokerage is offered on the boathouse.. Boat house is not included in listing price. Boathouse purchase is sales tax exempt.
There are no comparisons possible to the equipment load out, condition and general excellence of Polaris One. We confidently present her as turn key and better than new in all respects.
Brokers please inquire for full cooperative brokerage details.
