History of Forbes Cooper Yacht Designs from Boattrader.com:
"Forbes Cooper was one of Canada’s most prolific boat builders. His Cooper Prowler power yachts were produced by the hundreds in many shapes and sizes. Cooper started in boat building in the early 1970′s building sailboats. He was a prolific sailboat producer building thousands of sailboats into the 1980′s. In the early 80′s he branched out into power boat construction. The Cooper Prowler series of yachts reached a production level of 800 per year and in total over 8,000 were produced. In the late 80′s Cooper sold his business and it became Cooper/Queenship, and then eventually just Queenship. The early Queenship yachts were also built and sold as Cooper Prowlers. After leaving Queenship, Forbes Cooper continued several other yacht building ventures. After a bit of a hiatus Forbes began FC yachts. During these years FC started with a 57 footer and expanded into building yachts up to 90 feet. /after a few successful years the company was purchased and the name was changed to Rayburn Motoryachts. At the turn of the century Westcoast Custom Yachts was begun and Forbes and a crew started building the popular cruising boat the Westcoast 46. Designed for the Northwest, it was a traditional boat with an excellent turn of speed. It has found a home in the charter business as well as with lovers of traditional cruising boats.
From the 46 the larger 57, 62 and 64 Pilothouse yachts were born. These boats combine large interiors, roomy flybridges and cal decks with impressive performance, dependability and economy. Even today Forbes at the age of 80 continues to develop new product with a Euro styled 64 Express cruiser set to be released in mid May."
