Paradigm changing boats

Just finished reading the full/fin keel debate and learned alot. Many noted you get the whole package and the keel is just part of it. Wonder which boats our esteemed panel think changed the game and why? e.g.
Valiant40/42- you can sail the world and expect to come home
Tayana 37- you can do it and not be a millionaire
Prout 39- you can do it on a multi hull
Deerfoot- 2 of you can do it on a big boat
Dana- you can do it on a small boat
J 24- the average guy can go fast
Cherubini- narrow and full keel doesn't mean slow
F27- go fast, fold it up and go home
Boreal 44- put all the weight in the middle then who needs a keel for a good ride
ETAP- who says only Boston Whalers are sink proof
Swan 46- it can be fast,beautiful and take what the sea hands out
All the best to you all
