Almost all boats are constructed on a productionbasis,as this is the most efficient means ofproduction. There’s only one set of molds and many boats being built from the mold,reducing the costof tooling per boat. Normally,there are a limited number of options to make assembly line production more efficient in terms of cost.
Leaving the ranks of production boats,there are several types of custom construction. There are many boats built with a limited budget,which isnormally by amateurs. If you don’t want to buildthe boat yourself,the next level available iswhat sailors call “semi custom” boats.
These semi customs are normally built by small or mid sized shops out of one set of molds so thehull and decks could end up being identical. The builders will however,allow the owner to pick out the interior and other options.
The true custom built boat,or one of a kind boat,is specifically designed and built from scratchfor a single customer with an unlimited budget. Atrue custom boat is a one on one project,and can get very expensive before you know it.
Before you decide to go out and buy a custom boat,you should give the used market another look. Those who have built custom or even semi custom boatsin the past do put them on the market for sale at some point or another.
This is a much less expensive way to go,simplybecause you won’t be paying a professional to design the boat from scratch. You can find used boats that offer one of kind features and options,all you have to do is look around.
If you have a custom built boat,you will also need a custom built boat lift. You can find the boats and lifts atBoat Lift Manufacturer.
