Ellis 36 Patriot For Sale

This 2008 Ellis 36 Patriot “ARGOS” features a number of recent upgrades. With a concentration on creating the ultimate sportfishing boat, “ARGOS” includes two new custom fighting chairs in the cockpit, Dual Raymarine 12in Axiom Monitors, Raymarine Open Array Radar, FLIR Night Vision, and a Chirp Transducer. The topsides have been recently repainted and the brightwork has 8 fresh coats of varnish. The 670 hp Cummins QSM 11 (with approx 1000 hrs) has been fully serviced over this past winter. Originally built for Mr. Billy Joel with deep-sea fishing in mind, this boat has been modified a few times, but has returned to its sportfishing roots.
