"The Ellis 28 was designed by Ralph Ellis to be extremely seaworthy. She is equally successful as a fishing boat, day boat, or weekend cruiser, and her sharp-looking hull will produce a good cruising speed. Many people marvel at the way this boat rides. “She rides a rough sea like she is another 8 feet in length…” and, “she handles like a charm around the harbor…” are two customer comments." ~ Ellis Boat Company
Sea Horse is a comfortable and capable coastal cruiser with good usage of space on deck, in the pilot salon and down below. With her efficient Volvo TAMD engine, upper helm station and strong Maine pedigree this boat is a great New England cruiser.
