A stress-free Maine vacation idea: Rent a well-maintained (and fully-cleaned) Ellis Boat.

Leave it all behind – the mass public, the stress of virus outbreaks, politics, and the stock market – and enjoy a safe cruise (by yourselves) on the Maine coast through Ellis Boat Charters! Never has there been a better time to “Try an Ellis Before You Buy an Ellis”.

Ellis works hard to provide fully-operational and well-cleaned vessels for our charter clients. We further guarantee in 2020 that every boat in our charter fleet will undergo a complete disinfection process prior to every charter. Ellis will utilize CDC-recommended chemicals and EPA-registered products to clean the vessels. 


Fold-out tables and fully-adjustable seating provides this dining setup when needed.
