Made In Maine—Straight From The Pine Tree State.
Classy Ship’s Bells
Based in Hiram, Maine, family-run Bellingham Bell introduced its stainless steel bells in the United States in 2010, and it didn’t take long for the demand to expand to the European market. Bellingham’s custom bells are available in a variety of metals, finishes, and mounts and can be wax cast with any raised design for a striking effect, such as that on the 220-foot Allure Shadow, shown above. A 12-inch bell cast in bronze starts at $3,000.

Second, you might have some old sails left over that Sea Bags, located on Custom House Wharf in Portland, Maine, will gladly turn into a tote for free. The rest of us can purchase one of the durable bags (totes start at $130), which are available in a range of sizes and styles to hold all our boating gear.
