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.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
