BG...I have a CC ketch and in a larger boat I think the ketch rig makes a lot of sense for cruising and a short handed crew. I am not familiar with the Colvic Victors but the Amel Maramu's have a great reputation for build quality and sea-worthiness. They are not to everyone's taste in terms of style or arrangements, but will get you where you are going.
I looked at a Colvic 40 ketch listing and I must say that it looks like a floating condo and designed for light duty. Yet other Colvics look much better. What SIZE boat range are you looking at and what price range? Ketches only?
