high quality yacht brands?

I grew up sailing but didnt pay a lot of attention to most boat brands when I was a kid, save a few that I would see on a regular basis in Galveston Bay.

My father and I are getting back into sailing again after an 8 year hiatus and he suggested looking at an Island Packet. I had no idea as to whether that was a quality cruising yacht or not.

It made me start thinking...what are the very high quality cruising yachts out there? I simply don''t know. Maybe if I were an avid reader of Cruising World or Yachting magazines I wouldn''t have had to start this thread.

This was not meant to be a "if you had a million dollars" thread, and if that is the case, I am sorry. This was only for my own education so that I would know what brands are considered some of the highest quality cruising yacts. I have looked at some of the boats online after gettting the responses, and I have to say that Malo is one of the most beautiful brands of boat that I have ever seen.
