I wished I had designed that boat

A question for both our professional and amateur yacht designers and wannabes too. What three boats would you be particularly proud to have designed? If possible choose boats from different designers and of different types.

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.
