LOCATION: Ellis Boat Company, Southwest Harbor, ME

FROM PREVIOUS OWNERS: “We cruised all along the Maine coast and throughout the islands of the MDI area, exploring the massive rocks of Baker Island (without crowds), finding bald eagles and ospreys feeding their chicks in nests, and discovering loons and seals tucked into inlets along Somes Sound. Dasbote was our comfortable retreat from life’s responsibilities that was roomy enough to share with family and friends for a sunset cruise or a grandchild sleep-over. We also expanded the lower V-berth for cozy comfort. Dasbote is the perfect boat when you want the comfort of an Ellis cruiser with the nimbleness to tuck into the docks at NE Harbor and Islesford.” – The Baldwins
