“You have a super boat, an excellent value proposition and great service… The Maine archipelago is one of the best in the world.  Sailboats take too long to get around and there aren’t enough high quality powerboats available… It was worth every penny.”

“Just wanted to take a minute half way through our charter to tell you how much we are enjoying it.  I absolutely LOVE the Ellis 36 Express Cruiser!  In fact, I like it even more than I thought I would.  The boat is a marvel.  Your design company has thought through every detail and have created the ideal boat.  We enjoyed lunch onboard for eight the other day and it was wonderful how we were all able to sit down at the same table together.  Not sure what other boat this size would be able to accommodate that size group for lunch.  What a wonderful experience. Working with your company has been great as well.  You have been so attentive to our needs and concerns. Great experience all around…”

“The boat was amazing and made our trip really special.  Also thanks for the light seas and great weather.”  

“Thanks for great Ellis experience…the boat and YOU could not have been better.  Weather and seas were just right too.”

“We did a range of activities with the boat.  We circumnavigated MDI, made multiple trips to the east portions of Frenchman bay and had a few evening cruises.  The boat inspired confidence even when in pea soup fog… and it was nice to have a relatively large platform for the older people.”
