Eloise is now situated under the hard in Yarmouth, Maine. This boat is a unique, custom made vessel that has a standard Royal Lowell designed Downeast lobster hull built by Jim Beal that was finished by West Bay Boats to full USCG specifications. Well maintained and meticulously cared for.
Eloise has been used for owners' family and friends picnics, sunset and other cruises around Mystic, Ram lsland and Noank, Connecticut. She has also been out in Long Island Sound performing with the sea worthy character that a lobster boat hull gives.
Eloise would be equally at home and has all the requirements to be cruising on a lake, or along a canal, river, or inland waterway.
Her cabin, open forward deck and forward steering design was partially influenced by the modern water taxis of Venice, and she would perfect as a tour boat too. Comfortable midships cabin with settees (that convert to berths), table and galley area. Equipped with inverter, enclosed head, Webasto diesel cabin heater. Powered by professionally maintained 115 HP Honda outboard (2002) with 300 hours.
A unique opportunity, a special one of a kind boat, Eloise is ready for her next purpose.
