Our Heritage - Limestone® Boats

Our Heritage

For 35 years, Limestone® has been a heritage brand in Coastal New England and the Great Lakes regions. The model designs were originally developed by renowned yacht designer Mark Ellis of Essex, CT.

Ellis’ body of work includes an impressive number of timeless and highly successful power and sail designs. Ellis has been active for 45 years designing and developing the iconic Limestone® powerboat brand.

Limestones have been built in the Great Lakes region since the mid 1980s. Over time, the Limestone® models have expanded and undergone a series of enhancements throughout their production phases. As the models evolved, customers took notice with credit to the brand’s dedication to performance, quality, durability and functionality that ultimately created a cult-like following.

In 2020, marine industry veteran Scott Hanson took the helm at Limestone® under The Limestone® Boat Company. Hanson and his team have also engaged Ellis to be involved with the evolution of existing designs and new model creations as they move the brand forward.

Hanson holds an honors degree in Marine Design, Engineering and Boatbuilding from the Landing School in Kennebunk, Maine. He brings a deep background of expertise to Limestone® with 30+ years of marketing and business management experience.

Limestone® has embarked on a new, calculated course with a nod to its heritage and with an eye to its future. Model enhancements and improvements, and exciting changes are taking place as we speak.

Heritage. Forward.
