we just signed a purchase and sales on a Niagara 35 after looking at HR rasmus, CS36, bristol 35.5, valiant 37, little harbor 38, sabre 38 and a bunch of others I don't remember. main selling points of the Niagara were condition, condition, condition - and the admiral liked the galley and shower. I was impressed with the attention to detail in the design and engineering. Survey is thursday, so we will see.
Killarney have you seen the 40' Ellis custom in maine? I can't post the link here, but looks nice. too bad its out of our price range
