Debatable as to being on the top 12, but I like:
Mooooooooooooody.
Suits my needs. Especially the 42CC

The boat is not the medium........the water is the medium, so anything that floats would be on my list.......

Obviously price does not enter into the equation for this list so I guess "If you have to ask the price you can't afford it".

This list is a bit ....................but a lot of fun and we all have our OPINIONS and after awhile we find the difference between the silly and the sincere........ I believe Allied Seawind or Allied Princess was the first fiberglass vessel to successfully circumnavigate the globe they might be included...Pacific Seacraft Voyager

If money isn't an issue

1. Royal Huisman
2. Jongert
3. Perini Navi
4. Contest
5. Vitters
6. Nautor Swan
7. Baltic
8. Hallberg-Rassy
9. Wally (just for the looks)
10. Any Reichel-Pugh design (McConaghy built is an extra plus )
11. J/24
12. X-yachts

Even though some designs are just ugly (Jongert, Pereini Navi, Hallberg) they are in the top level as of built quality

A guy goes to a bar...he orders a shot of bourbon..he drinks he looks in his pocket....he orders another one...he drinks he looks in his pocket....he orders another one...

once more...he orders another one he drinks he looks in his pocket....he orders another one...

The bar tender says...why you drink and look in your pocket???

The guy says..I have a picture of my AMEL MARAMU in my pocket...when it looks good...I'll go sailing
Hillarious!!!! I must have missed this thread when I was out with the wife. No offense to the Amel owners, but I agree!!! And what the hell are those blue things as you are coming down the steps??!!??

Guess I kinda agree, too, but have you seen the new Amel 54? GREAT interior, nice looking boat. And, you gotta admit, these babies are well built.
