    Interested in the Niagara 35, but don't think you can afford a 35 footer (or maybe you don't want to handle a 35 footer)? Then take a look at the Aloha 32. It was also designed by Mark Ellis, and it has an appearance and interior layout is very similar to the Niagara 35. In fact, Mark Ellis appears to have successfully squeezed in everything from the Niagara 35 into this 32 footer - everything is just a little tighter. Aside from 3 feet in the overall length, the main difference between the two boats is that one was manufactured by Hinterhoeller, and the other by Aloha (two builders who had good reputations). Like the Niagara 35, the Aloha 32 also has two interior options. One has a fairly standard layout for a boat in this size range, and other has a layout which a little different and which does away with the v-berth. Taller people may be interested to note that there's an impressive 6' 4" of headroom in the main cabin.
