Blue water cruiser with bridge clearance of less than 44 feet

I now have a weekend cruiser (a Tanzer 26), and I hope to finally soon be able to buy a bigger boat, for eventual voyages south, after a year or two of using it as a weekend cruiser. I like the Tayana 37, Alberg 37 and Niagara 35, all attractive bluewater-capable boats with appealing interors.

My problems is I live in Ottawa, and there is a 50-foot bridge in my cruising grounds, and a 44-foot bridge between here and Montreal, where I like to sail from time to time.

So, any ideas? I am thinking that a ketch-rigged boat may be the way to go, but even then boats in this size range tend to be too tall.
