Frenc Mate, "did I spell that right?", wrote a vol 1, and 2 books called the worlds best boats or something to that nature. They were not listed in order in the books, but alphbetical so as to not injure the manufacture. IIRC Benateau was listed. Obviously not a high end boat, but none the less, had some things about the manufacture process etc that he liked. he went to many manufactures and wrote about the best 20 or so in ea book.
I have vol 1 at home, so I can not say whom is in that book off the top of my head. The original list is good except for Hunter! Cabo and Malo were in the book IIC also. Valient was not! Nor was Gunboat.
