Fisher Rogger Colvic-Watson WHAT OTHER?

I am interested in a pilothouse ketch along the lines of a Fisher 37. So far I have come across Colvic-Watson and Rogger as plausible alternatives. Would anyone know of other possible boats that are configured along the same lines?

The Finnsailor 38 comes in a ketch version. Not as salty looking IMHO though.

Truant 33 and 37 - sturdy Bill Garden designs. The Truant 33 has the reverse windows on the pilothouse a la Fisher. Member here 'See ya later Moonglow' has one, look for his posts for pics. - perhaps he'll chime in too.

Northsea 34 is another PNW pilothouse with a less salty 'look' but a better performer, as are the Cooper series (316, 353, 416, 508)

ahh.. good , I was going to mention Moonglow's boat but wasn't sure what she is. Of course the Sceptre should also be mentioned though they are not inexpensive and 40 plus feet. For my money probably the pick of the litter and would sail the pants of a Fisher.

Yes the Sceptre on the list but maybe not for someone in love with the Fisher look.... (and yes that would probably eliminate the Coopers and Northsea too)

The Saturna 33 is the same hull as the Truant, with a different deck also available with an inside helm.
SATURNA 33 Sailboat details on sailboatdata.com

Another local product was the Seabird 37 pilothouse - both a CC ketch and a pilothouse version were produced.

Here's an earlier thread with quite a few mentions and pictures.....

Hello Michael

Whilst the Fisher 37 and Roggers are fine motor sailers if your going to be in heavy seas then I have to recommend the Colvic Watson 34'-6" AC, they are absolutely bullet proof !

But before you buy think two things, what is the 'minimum' crew you will have at any one time and what is going to be your cruising ground, as you will need at least two to sail a CW 34'-6", if your after a fast yacht then buy something else, but the CW will get you there every time, but she is no racer.

I have sailed all the differant sizes of CW (and two Fishers) and find little differance in speed with a Mizzen, with a CW 34'-6" you will be looking at approx 9 Knots max under full sail, However where the Mizzen is good is in poor weather.

Hope this might be of help.

thank you

for your kind reply. I have become aware of the Colic Watson as another very good choice and understand it to be your absolute favorite. From all that I have read it is as sturdy as one can get.
