Accommodations and 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 (side ports have screens).  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. 

Starting below in the bow aboard Windsong X, 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 of 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 for a holding tank and macerator pump (both to be installed), Y Valve for overboard when offshore.

Stepping aft brings you to into the main salon.  There are comfortable settees on either side with storage above and behind.  The fixed mounted table sits in between, and the leaf can be raised for double the table space when more needed.  

Moving further aft brings you into the large U-shaped galley to port.  It offers lots of countertop space and ample storage throughout.  LED lighting runs the length and width of the galley. 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 six comfortably. 

Her owners have kept her well and the boat does not look or feel her age.
