Came across your blog when I was researching Niagara 42 for a potential purchase. I really enjoyed it.
My wife and I want to cruise the caribbean and beyond. We have our eye on a Niagara 42 and plan to sail her on Lake Ontario (at Ganonoque) for a few years first and then take off.
Do you have any honest advice about the boat? I would appreciate an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to hear your non-biased comments about how the boat sailed, how she was to live-aboard etc.. etc..
Dan, thanks for the note. We are traveling right not and I’ll get back to you via email next.
I’d be happy to share our experiences. We loved Allura!
Looking forward to hearing about your experiences.
Hello Kristina, Thanks for sharing We are currently sailing our Ontario 32 in Georgian Bay; just finishing a 4 week trip to Mackinac Island, Michigan. We are sailing with friends who are on a Niagara 35. We have been talking about the Niagara 42 and are considering a bigger boat. Can you provide us your knowledge of the 42; liveability, sailing charachteristics etc. thanks, Bob & Rosalind
