high quality yacht brands?

I know that this is very subjective, and most of us love our own boats, but I was wondering what brands of cruising boats do you consider very high quality overall? Aside from Swans and Hinckleys, what are in the upper eschelon (sp?) of boat brands? (not asking about custom built or superyachts)

I would say that we have 4 different categories regarding price and quality.

1- Completely custom boats like Camper and Nicolson or Alden yachts.

2- Low production semi-custom boats like Najad, Malo, Morris, Cabo Rico or Contest.

3- High quality production boats like Tartan, Sabre, Dehler, wauquiez, x-yachts, J-boats.

4- Big production sail boats . Boats that are made in large numbers to a price, like Bavaria, Hanse, Dufour,Hunter, Catalina, Harmony or Beneteau.
