Ellis Charter Boats

Your charter starts with an Ellis Boat Company representative giving a full tutorial on the operation of the vessel out of Southwest Harbor, Maine. All Charter vessels include a tender and proper cruising/safety equipment. Additionally, the entire Ellis Charter Fleet is properly insured, well-maintained, and thoroughly cleaned between each charter.

The Hinckley Talaria charter boat is outfitted for overnight stays, although many charter clients use this vessel for day-trips in conjunction with a Captain and sea-side accommodations.
