    Sarin boats (Minor), Nord Star make similar style boats also from Finland. In Norway you have the Commuter by Askeladden. From Sweden you can find Anytec, and Triton. I am sure I have left out several builders but. I suspect the the rather harsh climate and unpredictable weather in the north is the reason for these style boats.

    None of the above (except maybe Anytec) can measure up to Targa in quality, performance and handling.

    In the North American market about as close as we come are aluminum models like this -

    The builders for this style are mostly on the west coast of Canada.
