southern ontario

Google or yahoo sailquest ontario. Checkout used sailboat market central Canada. There are lots of listings as close as Port Credit. Also some stats on some popular older Canadian boats.

Gary M Importing into Ontario just means paying GST and PST, pretty basic. my trucking company took care of it at the border and actually paid the taxes and I reimbursed them on delivery. Sailing her home is of course cheaper but not always possible.

Ontario 32

You can't go wrong with an Ontario 32. They are built to last. No issues with them!!!!

dodgydingo Yes I am in Mississauga, suburb of Toronto,Canada. I did notice the boats in Michigan were much lower in price when browsing on yachtworld's website. I guess I will be scouring the forum tonight about importing boats into Canada. Thanks for the info on the Northern. I appreciate any info I can get. The 37 is listed on yachtworld for 56,000 and I will be looking at it next week. The photos of it look pretty good but as I am new to boats I am a bit nervous about these moisture issues.. or any other things that could be a disaster. There is another Northern 37 listed for about 45k on yachtworld and it does look like it was finished by another builder as the interior is more basic.

What are your opinions on Northern Ketchs. I could not find any information about them but I did find one for 40k which I am no finding suspect considering it is a 38foot boat.. seems a bit low.
I agree on the recommendations to pass on this one. I think you will find other Niagaras in this price range. Mine sold for CA$66K and it was in outstanding condition and very well-equipped. I would not avoid these boats because of core in hulls - most have no problems, especially if no holes have been drilled through the cored section (the hull was laid out with solid sections for various through-hulls.)

Overall, I would think that Hinterhoeller build quality is better than either Aloha or Ontario, but the latter boats are decent quality too and if the price is right. The Northern 37 is not well-known (not many were built) and are decent, basic boats. I had a Northern 29 and the build quality was OK, the problem was that it had an early IOR hull form and did not sail all that well. Not sure if this can be said for the 37. Some 37s were sold as hull and deck only and the overall quality will depend on how well the home builder did.

It sounds like you are in Canada from the boats you are talking about. You certainly should look in the US - prices there are very reasonable and there is a very large range of boats to choose from.

dodgydingo Thank you for all the quick replys. I will pass on it. It is a shame though as it is a beautiful boat and yes very roomy. I will keep looking although I think I will have to look at the smaller boats if I want it to be in good shape for that price.

TAK On the other hand ..
Do some research but I doubt the hull is cored below the water line.. if you think the boat solid otherwise and you are not afraid of some work and you like the boat offer $20-25 less ..

Ellis designs are classic and that is a roomy 35 ..

primerate84 Definitely pass. This is a buyer's market and there are plenty of good boats available that should meet your needs in your price range that don't have water in the core. Just keep looking.

johnshasteen Moisture in the cored hull???? Now you know why it's $25K below sound Niagara 35's. Keep looking! There's a lot of solid older boats out there.
