Chartering a Boat in Maine – What People Say – Reviews

Ellis Charter Reviews: The following statements are unsolicited reviews from various charter clients who have bareboat chartered a vessel in Maine from Ellis Boat Charters.

“I wanted to take a minute and tell you how much we enjoyed our charter on the 36’ Ellis. The entire Penobscot Bay Area is absolutely incredible – so many wonderful places. But the favorite thing about our charter was the boat “Too Priceless” – she is truly a proper yacht and in Bristol condition.  We were impressed the moment we walked down the dock – the boat was spotless – Incredible condition for a charter boat. The boat was set up with all the “right stuff” as well and the maintenance was spot on. We had a flawless week of charter – the boat performed way beyond our expectations. I truly feel privileged to have to spent a week on Too Priceless – it was one of our best vacations ever!!!”

“You have a super boat, an excellent value proposition, and great service… The Maine archipelago is one of the best in the world.  Sailboats take too long to get around and there aren’t enough high-quality bareboat charter powerboats available… It was worth every penny.”

“Just wanted to take a minute halfway through our Ellis yacht charter to tell you how much we are enjoying it. I absolutely LOVE the Ellis 36 Express Cruiser! …This charter boat is a marvel. Your design company has thought through every detail and have created the ideal boat. We enjoyed lunch onboard for eight the other day and it was wonderful how we were all able to sit down at the same table together. What a wonderful experience. Working with Ellis Boat Company’s charter and service company has been great as well. You have been so attentive to our needs and concerns. Great experience all around…”


“The charter boat was amazing and made our trip really special.  Also thanks for the light seas and great weather.”

“Thanks for great Ellis charter experience…the boat and YOU could not have been better.  Weather and seas were just right too.”

“We did a range of activities with the boat.  We circumnavigated MDI, made multiple trips to the eastern portions of Frenchman Bay and had a few evening cruises. The boat inspired confidence even when in pea soup fog. And it was nice to have a relatively large platform for people of all ages.

”Having just spent 10 days aboard an Ellis 36 Express Cruiser from Maine to Massachusetts in both sloppy and wonderful weather, I can’t say enough about this boat’s reliability and sheer comfort. Great boat. Great company was my experience. If you’re in the market, give this a look.”
