So, for me it would have to be the Thames A rater, Norfolk Punt, possibly a Javelin or Mk9 Merlin (before they got all wide an saucery). 

If this wasn't in the dinghy thread I'd have nominated 6M and/or Dragons as both are simply beautiful IMO, but as its dinghies I will disagree and stick with i14's, a great and fittingly photogenic class which exemplifies the best of British dinghy development
