    I would say for Motoryachts:
    -Eclipse
    -Topaz
    -Luna
    -Serene
    -Dilbar

    For Sailyachts:
    -Maltese Falcon without a doubt
    -Aquijo
    -Dream Symphony
    -White Pearl just because of its different design style of other sailyachts
    -Sybaris

    No, as I said, when I looked it up, it quickly became obvious that it's Windward Passage.

    For motoryachts:

    - Quattroelle, for its exterior and interior design. Still my favorite megayacht.
    - Topaz, for its very luxury interior without being overblown
    - The new Dilbar, for its technical features and its exterior design
    - Mangusta 165 Moonraker, my favorite fast boat

    For sailboats:

    - Maltese Falcon, for its rig and sailing performance / characteristics
    - Athena, my all time favorite
    - Meteor, beautiful boat in- and outside
    - Mine, of course :), or any other cruiser/racer designed by Bill Tripp like Alithia or Mystere

    No, no it hasn't, at least as far as I know. But it does not mean, it is unvisible :).

    Yes, she is nice. I have a similar favorite but with a deck house. Also John Munford interior and Jens Cornelsen supervision if I recall it right, recent name Debora...

    Fish, the both of us share the same taste. I can see Foftein from my boat, when I am in Mallorca. I have seen her many times before and after her big refit. A beautiful classic yacht with beefy machinery. The first time, I was allowed to set my feet on her deck, was during her seatrails. Owning a Jongert at that time, I was a little
    jealous, because she could sail away from us quite easily. Foftein is a milestone in the history of Royal Huisman, where their boats became bigger and bigger. 10 years later, her owner comissioned his second and bigger Foftein II with Royal Huismann. Did not know, she was on the market again.

    That is a true gentlemans sailing yacht. And she is in great shape, very well maintained. Foftein is an old German idiom (Low German) and means literally 15 but is used for calling out "end of work" or "lets have a break".

    Stunning, we should try to compare this vessel to the Tecnomar Evo 55 open

    My favourite yacht is Savannah (Feadship)

    It was a favourite of me too, I built her as a model when I was very young in the 50:s. I probably still have it somewhere in a storage....
