    From fore to aft.....is the usage right?

    From fore to aft, dive into the comfort and luxury of the the ferry lines.

    The phrase is Fore and aft, but is this usage right? Also, is this applicable for American English.

    Thanks in advance.

    I imagine you are talking about the ferry boats, not the ferry lines. The boats have a fore and aft. Ferry lines are a service.

    Try "stem to stern." It has a nice alliteration.
