“Solicitor” is an example of a premium brand US built pilot house motor yacht.  It is no wonder Tollycraft has such a cult like following. The 57 Widebody Pilothouse model was designed by Ed Monk to offer maximum interior volume and the livability of a much larger yacht. She was built to stand up to weather  as well as provide good performance and fuel economy. Powered by 800 hp CATS,  you will find "Solicitor" to be a very comfortable, couples live-aboard or coastal family cruiser. The current owner has actually owner her twice!  As the second owner, she was extensively cruised from Maine to Florida .  Eventually she was sold as the time to cruise became less available.  Over the next several years her former owner and very experienced yachtsman, yearned to get back on the ocean.  He looked at all brands, new and pre owned but couldn't  find anything to measure up to the quality, comfort, and performance of his Tollycraft.  After countless frustrating inspections and sea trials he decided the only way he could ever truly be happy again on the water was to track down his old boat and buy her.  He did just that and has owned her for years, consistently upgrading her and maintaining her . The time has come again to find her a new loving home as plans have changed.  If you are in the market for a premium built pilot house motor yacht then “Solicitor” is a must see.
