This is a true classic, Pacific Northwest all purpose cruiser. Tollycraft boats are renowned for their rugged construction and seaworthiness and this boat has been extremely well maintained. A very popular Tollycraft model, Le Grand Chien has plenty of cabin space for cruising, and outdoor space for sunny days. Large windows allow tons of light into the cabin and also for great visibility while driving from the lower station. The 10' Beam gives it the feel of a much bigger boat that and the solid construction mean that she handles well in those Lake Powell blows. After 15 years at the Lake we're pursuing other hobbies and are offering the old girl to a worthy new owner. Below you will find specifications and some of the accessories included as well as many things we've done to maintain the boat in the past and this spring (2019). She is on the hard at Marine Maintenance waiting and is truly "lake ready" and needs nothing. Read on.

The V-birth is roomy and has a new memory foam pad for comfort on extended trips. Hammocks for gear/clothes and a reading light. In there you also have the Sony Cassette with FM and a 10 disc CD changer. Speakers are in the cabin as well as the cockpit and on the Fly Bridge. Comfortable settee on the port side with storage under the seats and sole. Starboard across from the settee is the lower driving station with Submersible (hopefully never needed!) VHF Radio that has a separate handheld for use while moving around the boat and driving from the Fly Bridge. Behind the captain's seat is the full kitchen with 3 burner stove and functional oven, sink with pressurized water and a 110/12V fridge that we have never used. All the pots and pans etc. that you will need are included. Continuing back is the "bar" area with substantial storage underneath. Across from the bar is the stand up head with pump out capable toilet system (no porta-potty here) and sink. Here you will also find the Hart charger/inverter panel and power unit.
On the Fly Bridge there are 4 fold-able captain's chairs with a full Bimini cover as well as a storage cover. Storage under the eyebrow is substantial and the instrumentation for the upper steering station is protected by an aftermarket cover.
The very large Cockpit is also covered by a full Bimini and comes with full enclosure isinglass (clear plastic) covers for cool weather as well as screens for shade in the summer. A mister system is set up for the cockpit also. Shade screens for the side windows come with. There is an excellent shower system back here that is heated from the engine.
She has a very dry and clean bilge. Scuppers on the cockpit work extremely well and the hull's integrity keep this area dry and a pleasure to work in if you have to. Plenty of room for some more storage, although we like to keep it fairly accessible in case you do need to get into the middle of something while underway. The lake water cooling system allows for the closure of the seacock intake after use, thus isolating the dang ol' mussels from your engine. We have yet to have mussel issues while using this system and the boat has spent the last 4 years in the slip.
