Maine Governor Paul LePage’s administration said a boat company based in Hancock County is expanding and adding a new facility. The Department of Economic and Community Development said Ellis Boat Co. in Southwest Harbor will have a new crane and more manufacturing space in the expansion. The company expects to add eight new jobs. The family-operated boat company was founded in 1945 and is known for its traditional-style Downeast yachts, lobster boats, and luxury cruisers. The economic development department said it worked closely with the company in discussing tax incentives programs to encourage its expansion. (AP)
