Ellis Boat Company – A Bloodline of Boat Builders

     "Being part of a family business can be a joy and source of pride, especially when your job is to manufacture beautiful custom boats. In 1947, Ralph Ellis embarked on the legendary boat-building venture with Raymond Bunker in Southwest Harbor, Maine. The subsequent partnership of “Bunker and Ellis” established a remarkable legacy of building classic lobster yachts... In the 1980’s, this legacy was passed on to Ralph’s son, Don Ellis, in the name of Ellis Boat Company. Fast-forward to today. There are over 300 custom Ellis Boats traversing the seas, all built with the pride that is inherent with a family-owned business. Don’s two sons, Shane and Anthony, have both settled on Mount Desert Island and maintain a close connection to Ellis Boat Company – Anthony spending time in production and Shane involved with Marketing/Sales. The youngest generation includes seven children, ages 1-9. Cedar Ellis, age 9, wants to be “a builder” when he grows up. Perhaps he will become the 4th generation of Ellis boat-builders?

     If you own an Ellis, you can take pride in owning a vessel crafted in the USA by a family business that maintains an extraordinary legacy of fine craftsmanship..." ~ Ellis Website

Surveyor's Remarks

     "This vessel is hull number three of the Ellis 36 line and was custom built for her -previous- owner in 1998.

     She was originally built for extended cruising and has had several upgrades since that time. This vessel was first seen several years ago while performing an Insurance "Condition and Value" inspection and a "Pre-Purchase Inspection" for here current owner in February, 2011, while in winter storage.

     The topsides have been painted Flag Blue since my last inspection along with the boot stripe and the bottom paint changed from blue to white.

     The starboard topside was seen from the float and appears to be in very good condition with some fender chaffing just forward on amidships. The port side, bottom and running gear were not seen during this inspection. 

     The decks and superstructure were also visually inspected, randomly sounded and checked for elevated moisture readings. There was a small area of gel coat crazing inboard for the port fly bridge wing.

     The only elevated moisture readings were just inboard of the second port stanchion and around the fly bridge base and up 6" to 8". The moisture appears to be entering the core through the stainless steel hand rails screws and inboard screws. This condition is not of structural concern however the screws should be re-bedded to prevent further water intrusion.

     The cockpit deck was also sounded and checked for moisture. The starboard Beckson deck plate area sounded like wet plywood there were slightly elevated readings around the fittings, all of which should be re-bedded. 

     The running lights appear to be under Inland Rules and are properly spaced. 

     The engine appeared to be properly installed with flexible mounts secured to fiberglass covered stringers. The neutral safety switch controlling engine and reverse gear must be checked as the engine started in gear during this inspection. The engine started easily and all readings were normal...

     The Generator started easily and ran with a light load. The hydraulic Stern Thruster did not sound like it was coming up to speed and may have been operator error.  

     The interior is clean and comfortable. The conversion of the port head into a bunk room made a lot of sense. The owner's stateroom door does not close properly and the perforated headliner is sagging. 

     The fly bridge deck indicated dry and no de-lamination was noted" ~ Survey by Steve Bunnell on "Patricia Ann" dated September 22, 2018
