Live-aboard or Day-cruising: Do either with Ellis Boat Charters.

Ellis provides pristine and fully-operational vessels for bareboat chartering. Some clients live-aboard for multiple weeks and extensively cruise the coast of Maine. Other clients prefer renting an Ellis charter boat as an extension of a sea-side residence for day-cruising. Either way, Shane Ellis with Ellis Boat Charters can provide you with a fantastic Maine boat this summer.
