A well-regarded yacht with strong resale values, the Tollycraft 61 MY is a handsome pilothouse design with tremendous eye appeal and excellent seakeeping qualities. Unlike conventional double-deck motor yachts her size, the 61’s low profile keeps guests and crew at the water level for much of the boat’s length. Built on an efficient semi-displacement hull with a wide beam and modest transom deadrise, her pilothouse layout includes a roomy salon, a deckhouse galley, and three large staterooms forward including an opulent full-beam master suite with a queen bed and plenty of storage. The hand-rubbed teak interior, upscale fabrics and quality furnishings combine to make the 61 a very comfortable yacht indeed. Additional features include covered side decks, a shallow prop-protecting keel, and large engine room with cockpit access and near standing headroom. Most 61s were sold with 650hp 8V92s (20 knots cruise/23 top) or 735hp 8V92s (22/25 knots), although she’s still a good performer with the original 485hp 6-71s (15–16 knots cruise/19 top). Nearly 40 Tollycraft 61s were built before she was replaced in 1993 with the Tollycraft 65 Cockpit MY.
