The Niagara 35 is a much sought after cruiser that's capable of crossing oceans or coastal cruising in style. It is a high quality yacht made by Hinterhoeller in Ontario, Canada. The Niagara 35 is a handsome design that presents a rather classic look above water. Below water, she has a more modern fin keel with moderate draft and a spade rudder. The Niagara delivers good performance through a wide range of conditions.

 

Many people believe that Mark Elllis (of Nonsuch fame) came very close to setting the standard for the ideal cruising boat in the 35 foot range with the design for the Niagara 35.  It seems to have struck a good balance between the requirements for livability and a no-nonsense cruising boat.  This, along with its length of 35 feet, means the Niagara 35 is the kind of boat which starts to attract the attention of people who plan to live aboard for extended periods of time.
