Traditional looks combined with modern appeal draw frequent compliments for the Niagara 35, which was designed by Mark Ellis and built from 1978 to 1990 by Hinterhoeller Yachts in St. Catherines, Ontario.  The Niagara 35 is a high quality, medium displacement sloop that is heavily built, and recognized as an ideal coastal cruiser that is capable of offshore passages.

Best summed up by Jack Horner`s BoatUS review which states  “A well-built boat is always the result of a combination of proper planning, good design and quality workmanship, all of which are evident in the Niagara 35″

The Niagara 35 was designed with two cabin layout options; the encore and the classic.  This vessel provides the classic version which is hailed by some as a near perfect design for cruising couples.  This unique arrangement replaces the traditional V-berth with a fore-peak containing a work bench and ample storage.  The classic layout provides a roomy salon, with sea berths, galley and head all within reach of the cockpit.

This vessel is immaculate and the best kept example of a Niagara 35 on the market – guaranteed.  Over $90K has been spent in upgrades over the last 10 years.  Upgrades include rebuilt decks ($40K), recent hull and deck paint (Flag Blue with contrasting white decks 2007), new lifelines and deck hardware, new soft-goods including interior cushions covered with durable Sumbrella and closed cell floatable cockpit cushions covered in vinyl, upgraded electrical, a REBUILT ENGINE with only 175 hrs, and a brand new full battened main and 135% genoa by North Sails still in the box!  The owners are meticulous and the boat is truly beautiful throughout.  The bilge is so clean you would happily eat out of it and it is not often we say that!

This vessel is under a custom $4000.00 frame and cover that make winter viewings easy.  Recently surveyed.  Do not miss this one!
