This Niagara 35 Encore is like no other on the market, a bold statement that can only be realized when you actually tour the boat. Cared for and maintained by the original owners this boat is in “like new or better” condition. Careful and thoughtful improvements in instruments, refrigeration, water filtration, rigging, deck hardware, and electronics exemplify the concept of ‘Pride of Ownership”. As the pictures illustrate and your personal tour will confirm that this boat is “exceptional” among others in its class. “Mariposa” is a 1990 Encore version, which sets it apart from the earlier models. Custom ordered and built in 1990 (the second to last one built) this boat received several custom features specifically added with input from the owners.

Entering the cabin you will quickly notice what sets this apart from many other options! The floor plan of the main area presents a very open feeling, as the layout seamlessly blends the mast into a corner section of the head/cabin entrance point. Coming down the companionway, a full galley is to port and a Navigation Station is on the starboard side.

Moving forward is the salon with a sofa lining both sides of the cabin.  Pictured is a beautifully varnished centerpiece table that can fill the center space and provide dining space for both settees. An access door to the enclosed head/shower is on the port side, just before the entrance to the forward cabin. The forward cabin boasts a v-berth that can sleep two adults, a skylight, more than ample storage and a second access door to the head/shower, on the port side.

Engine access is the best I have seen on a sailboat. The companionway steps can be removed, and a portion of the galley folds down to create a very accessible compartment. (the YouTube video illustrates the process.) The helm is a traditional, aft-cockpit arrangement with U-shaped bench seating, center positioned wheel, folding table, and rear access to a swim ladder. Under the seating is ample storage. Additional electronics placement adds to the ease of navigating and spending time in the cockpit.

Seller will provide a current Survey (August 2019) with any purchase offer presented.  This gesture represents the seller’s confidence in the boat and will expedite any serious purchase offers.

As an educator Mike Foley taught high school technology and served as the district IT Director for the Honeoye Central School District located in the Finger Lakes. Mike retired from teaching and continued to grow his large format printing and graphic design business. Always involved with boats and boatbuilding, Mike has long been associated with boat owners and marinas in the Sodus Bay area. A former wooden boat owner Mike was bitten by the racing bug in 1992, purchased a J/30 from RCR and campaigned the boat for 12 years.

A member of the Sodus Bay Yacht Club, Mike has served on many regatta committees and held several officer and director positions. Mike’s relationship with the Lake Yacht Racing Association (LYRA) has spanned many years, including serving as President from 2004-06. Race administration and regatta organization have consumed much of his time for the past 26 years on Lake Ontario. Involvement with youth sailing led Mike to become President of Central New York Sailing Association (CNYSA) where he continues to chair the annual “Centrals on Sodus” open regatta for juniors and adults. As a strong proponent of youth sailing and education Mike has served as President of the Sodus Bay Junior Sailing Assn. (SBJSA) for several years and is now the Director of Fleet. Under his direction SBJSA has evolved from a summer sailing youth program to a US Sailing Accredited Community Boating Center, serving all ages.

Mike is a US Sailing Level 1 instructor as well as a certified Club Race Officer. He is often found at area regattas with his center console boat serving as mark-set officer. Mike and his wife Jan have remodeled the family cottage in Sodus Point and are making it their home. Feel free to reach out to Mike when visiting Great Sodus Bay.
