George Hinterhoeller, famed boat-builder built the Niagara 35s from 1978-1995, with close to 300 boats having been built in that time. Mark Ellis did the design work for the boat, and she is as elegant as she is functional.
Born in Austria, George Hinterhoeller immigrated to Canada in 1952. After working on his own initially, later merging with several Canadian-based builders for about 10 years, he refounded his own company in 1976. Beyond the popular Niagara 27 & 35 models, he found success with building the Nonsuch cat boat line, along with many other vessels, including multiple powerboats.
Accommodations & Layout
The Niagara 35 Encore offers excellent ventilation & natural light throughout the cabin via the large overhead hatches (with screens), and through the many opening ports aboard. Crafted in traditional George Hinterhoeller fashion, her interior is constructed with lots of teak and fine joinery work, and the cabin sole is teak and holly.
Staring below in the bow aboard Halcyon, the master cabin is forward with a large berth to port and a seat to starboard. Seat area can be converted into additional berth space as desired. Lots of lockers and drawers are found throughout. There is a private door to access the head directly from the forward cabin.
Head is on the port side aft if the master cabin, and has a separate shower stall with good storage space. There is a second entry door from the salon as well. Vanity features a stainless steel sink with hot & cold pressurized water. Manual head has a Y-valve to a 25 gallon holding tank, or directly overboard when offshore.
Stepping aft brings you to into the main salon. There are comfortable settees on either side with storage behind and below. The fixed mounted table sits in between, and the leaf can be raised when more table space is needed. On the starboard bulkhead forward, there is a Force 10 propane cabin heater as well.
Moving further aft brings you into the large U-shaped galley to port. It offers lots of countertop space and ample storage throughout. A portion of the galley hinges forward affording incredible access to the engine. Opposite to starboard is the forward facing navigation station and quarter berth. The design of the vessel is such that it allows for sleeping for up to five comfortably.
Her owners have kept her well and the boat does not look or feel her age. Please let me know if you have any specific questions which I can assist with, and I look forward to hearing from you.
