Bunker and Ellis

Fifty years later, Stardust, a 1966 twin engine 39′ Bunker and Ellis, has arrived back at Ellis Boat Company – back to where she was built at 265 Seawall Road in Southwest Harbor. Don Ellis recalls her beginnings with the famous builders Raymond Bunker and Ralph Ellis, back in 1966, when he was a teenager. In particular, he recalls the mahogany hull – only a few of the Bunker and Ellis hulls were built with mahogany.

Ellis Boat Company has inspected the boat fully and is process of developing a plan for a full restoration.  If you are interested in becoming the lucky new owner of this amazing vessel with it’s incredible place in the history, call Shane Ellis at 207-244-9221 (x6) or 207-266-7911.

Congrats to New Ellis 32 Owners!

otisWe are excited to announce that the Ellis 32 “Otis B” is under new ownership! The day of sea trials with the surveyor was an extremely windy October day with heavy seas and whitecaps – just to make it interesting. The Ellis 32 performed admirably and impressed everyone on board. Look for her next season in the area with a new name and a few upgrades!
