Feel free to post your voting reasons and opinions on these ships. Even rank them in order of which you like the most to least. Say why you hate every single one of them!
My personal opinions will come later...

I like the proportion of the ship better (especially the back part)
The only one I have is the Armada Flagship which comes in the 3rd place (I'm only talking about ships and not minifigs) ;)

Sentimental value is by far the most significant and important factor.

I think the cannon system on the Imperial Flagship is best. Of course, the best were on the larger pirate ships...

And now to continue the noyance...
The cannons were the same on the big ships as they were on the same ships with the exception of the Armada Flagship which had a green cannon. Although for some reason the Northern American cannons didn't fire and the rest of world's cannons did.

Nonetheless, the 6271 Imperial Flagship looks the best out of the bunch.

If they would have designed the Imperial Flagship with a nicer stern, I
might have voted for that.
The jibbing on the Imperial Flagship is nicer and also a nicer "flap system"
above the cannons.
What also cost points, at least in my opinion, is the choice of colors used
on the Imperial Flagship. I found some of them distracting.
I loved the colors on the Armada Flagship (at least the hull section)
Blue and White. The added greens were a bit distracting and the single
canon makes this set hardly worth getting.
The only other redeeming factor for the Armada Flagship is the chrome
breastplate on the spaniard captain.

I really don't remember the Imperial Flagship but the flags seem juniorized (ship and figs are nice though).
What's interesting about the Clipper is that after building a few times, most of the clips on the flags (large and small) broke off. I never contacted Lego for replacements, but I still have the ship in good shape.
Did you encounter this with the older sets Phes?

Given the nature of the blue flaps on the Caribbean Clipper part of their functionality is to flip down to reveal the cannons. So if a child were to be playing with this set that's something they'd probably do frequently which would cause more wear on the clips.
However what I find most annoying is the flags on the stern, for the piece that connects them there is easily knocked off and it can be quite difficult to put back especially if you have large fingers.

Buying them off eBay where their past owners have obviously abused them!
