Default Elita 440 ?

So I was driving up I-95N. today and passed an boat named "Fox Sea" It said ELITA 440 I'm assuming that is the Make and Model. This boat Kinda' resembled a SONIC with three big 'ol drives. I can't seem to find any thing on the net about this boat. Any one have any info on these boats or on this boat in particular? I'm just curious...

Thanks,

Rob

(late reply here...)

You were correct, it was an Elita 440. Made in Canada, during the late 80s to early 2000s.

They made 25' and 33', and one 44' (the one you saw).

That's my dad's boat you saw, probably going down to Florida (or up to Canada) on I-95.

Had triple 650HP with bravo 1 back in 2005.

Now the boat as been fully rerigged and repainted this summer, with triple Mercury 496 with new drives.

I do have some pictures, but I don't know how to post them...
