Length w/ Pulpit:
Sharing the same semi-displacement hull as the companys popular 48 Cockpit MY, the Tollycraft 48 Convertible is a truly handsome yacht with muscular styling and go-anywhere construction. With her fine entry, moderate deadrise, and long keel, the Tolly 48 earned a reputation early on as an excellent sea boat with outstanding rough-water handling characteristics. Not developed as an out-and-out sportfisherman, she was designed instead for part-time anglers who enjoy a comfortable family cruising yacht with genuine offshore fishing capabilities. Among her features are two staterooms and heads, a lower helm station, cored hull construction, a giant (and deep) cockpit with a transom door, and an enormous flybridge that extends slightly out over the cockpit. The owners stateroom is huge and rivals those found in many motor yachts for size and comfort. Her easy-running hull will cruise efficiently at 16 knots with any of several diesel options, and big 8V92TIs will reach a top speed of nearly 30 knots. With 600 gallons of fuel and a cruising economy approaching 1 mile per gallon at 15 knots, the 48 Convertible is indeed a long-range yacht.
