Assuming money is no object:

Outerlimits 42!!! Staggered of course.

41 Apache - no step. Which builder? Old boats, no thanks. New boats, really unknown quality. Saber 41?

44 Hustler - I don't care for the long slab sides, or the engine hatch.

42 Tiger - Beautiful, well built. Not staggered, but otherwise very tempting.

47 Fountain - The triple engines just prevent me from pulling the trigger. A staggered twin that was rigged by someone other than the factory, maybe.

F4 Sunsation - looks BEAUTIFUL. But just does not compare to a price-is-no-option Outerlimits. If money mattered, then a Saber 41 would probably beat it out.

412 Formula - triples are the kiss of death. Also, such limited headroom, and the shallow cockpit. Beautiful lines, efficiency, and build quality almost makes up for the drawbacks. Almost.

43 Donzi - gets lost in the competition. A very nice boat, however. But not as fast as a Fountain, as quality as an Outerlimits or Cigarette, or as good a value as a Saber.
