What's the best boat brand?

What's the best brands for RIB boats in your opinion?

Make it in list form if you wish, and of course it would be nice to hear pros and cons but just your preference will do good!

How long is a piece of string?
I would say valiant as I have one and am bias. They are reasonable priced, fast, good layout, look good and well built.

Well I'm pretty sure that I would get lots of responses such as "mercedes" or similar if I asked what the best car brand is.. So I'm pretty sure you guys got opinions too. OR opinions on what brands to avoid.

Don't get a selva
I was looking at an excel voyager new for my first rib and to be honest the tubing was very tatty and was not cut and fitted properly.

It wouldn't be weird to ask what's the best song ever, or the best album. It's not at all like asking how long a piece of string is.

That's more like it Anyone else found that the build quality is worse on one brand than another, or that they are more prone to need repairs etc?
