Classic Ellis Yacht Gets a Facelift in Southwest Harbor

The second Ellis 32 to be built at Ellis Boat Company was built in 1991. The Ellis 32 was the first hull designed by father and son, Don and Ralph Ellis. All the hulls before the 32 were Ralph’s design. All the hulls since then have been Don’s.

For many people, the Ellis 32 is perfect, stable, cruising boat. This particular boat was built for long cruising, with a galley and an extended top. It has been heavily used by the family who purchased her and is due for some work. And so, 22 years later, she is getting a facelift, inside and out, in Southwest Harbor.
