The Niagara 42 is a classic cruising sailboat that was designed by Mark Ellis and built by Hinterhoeller Yachts in Canada between 1979 and 1996. The boat is known for its comfortable and spacious interior, excellent sailing performance, and rugged construction.

The Niagara 42 was originally designed as a center-cockpit ketch, with a spacious aft cabin and a large galley and salon area. Later models, such as this boat, features a more modern sloop rig, with a taller mast and a larger sail area. The boat has a displacement of approximately 23,000 pounds and a waterline length of 36 feet.

The Niagara 42 quickly became popular with cruising sailors, and many have completed long-distance voyages and circumnavigations. The boat's sturdy construction and excellent sailing performance make it well-suited for bluewater sailing.

Today, the Niagara 42 is considered a classic cruising sailboat, and many are still sailing and actively maintained by their owners. Its reputation as a reliable and capable cruiser has ensured its enduring popularity among sailors.
