Re: high quality yacht brands?

Pretty old thread but also fairly timeless. When I talk about a "quality boat" I think in terms of engineering and build quality. Design/performance aspects aren't really a part of "quality" to my mind. There are lots of ugly, stripped out quality race boats, just as there are lots of beautiful, slow, quality cruising boats.

Is a Ferrari higher or lower quality than a Rolls Royce? How about a Cadillac Escalade compared to a Chevy Suburban?

On a side note, the Scandinavian boats listed made me think - are there any low or middling quality boats produced in the Scandinavian countries? I sure don't know of any.
