About this Bunker and Ellis Lobster


Mary Lou, (formerly Matthew's Joy and Amanda Rose) is a two-owner Southwest Harbor lobster boat and one-owner pleasure boat. She is one of the last boats built by Raymond Bunker & Ralph Ellis and is one of the five wider models.  Her current owner hired the Newman and Gray Boatyard of Cranberry Island Maine to convert her to a pleasure boat while maintaining her original profile and many of her lobster boat features.  She has a new cabin, shelter, deck & platform as well as a hull rebuild. She is in excellent condition with a new diesel engine with less than 100 hours. Her cabin accommodates two for overnighting, and she has a spacious cockpit for plenty of seating capacity to enjoy the scenery, as well as contribute to its beauty! This is a locally built and rebuilt boat that has many good years ahead of her on the water. We highly recommend this fine Downeast wooden power boat for the person who appreciates her classic value.
