Can anyone identify this boat?

This boat is right across the slip from mine and for some reason I just like her. Have never seen the owner and there are no identifying make or model tags to be found anywhere. Anyone know what type of boat this is? I'm thinking early to mid 70's vintage, cal?

thanks.

Definitely a Mark Ellis design.. difficult to put scale to this picture, but your options are either:

Aloha 32
Niagara 35
Niagara 42

I'm leaning to the Niagara 35, built by Hinterhoeller Marine in Ontario Canada. guessing size and looking at the mainsheet arrangement which was a double mainsheet as in the picture.

Quite a nice boat, longish fin keel and spade rudder, pretty, traditional sheer line and transom. They all have a somewhat untraditional layout. Vintage is not so old, definitely early to mid 80s earliest.

Here's more:

The Aloha 32 had a similar mainsheet system.

Yes... they are VERY similar so it's going to come down to LOA.....

Aloha 32 - Used Sailboat Market in Canada

There should be a builder's plate in the rear of the cockpit, inside the transom midships.

Thanks guys! I spent hours trying to match it on Yachtworld. Didnt try either of those though but I think its definately one of the two and I'm leaning towards the Niagra 35 as it's in a 36 foot slip and takes up most of it.

Actually hold on, I think it's probably the Aloha 32. The cockpit layout seems to match better. I only took a few quick pics with the camera on my phone so kinda hard to tell but the port and starboard benches dont connect all the way back to the stern bench. You can see the engine control panel on the starboard side most of the way aft. That seems to match the Aloha 32 more

It is the 32, the 35 has an off centre main hatchway.
