    To pronounce anything the best of all time is disturbingly presumptuous. "Best" of anything is a subjective pronouncement that almost invariably gives rise to objections.

    These are production boats. Some might have had some line drawing ilustration published in a magazine at some time or another, but that's about all you can hope for. The only places that you could find actual reliable drawings are the designers and the yards.
    Old designs plans can be found in some libraries (some even digital) but we are usually talking about boats of interwar and earlier vintage.
