4- Big production sail boats . Boats that are made in large numbers to a price, like Bavaria, Hanse, Dufour,Hunter, Catalina, Harmony or Beneteau.
Don't agree with some your choices....

J-boats - anyone who mounts winches through balsa core could not be considered high quality.

Tartan - More marketing than quality. Have you followed any of the law suits and horror story threads on this forum (the best of which were deleted a couple of years ago).

Island Packet - Anyone who uses concrete and scrap metal for ballast (including old re-bar and what looked like the damper plate from my 1967 Chevy Nova) should not be considered high quality.
