The top of the line 1 meter (monohull) racer is the IOM class which is international
Next is a toss up of US a 1 Meter class and ODOM Class
Seawind would be next in popularity
1 meter Soling is another one design with a very large population of owners

There are a few more, but to my knowledge there is no organized 1 meter sailing for the latest group of Asian plastic boats. Takes 20 boats (and registered skipper) to have a registered AMYA class - or Class Owners Association -COA

Just suggesting you look forward before spending your money. Good luck
