It is a desire of many people to have a custom built boat due to their different requirements like fishing, sailing, luxury etc. That is why they like the boat to be built that fulfills their needs.
Almost all boats are constructed on production basis which is considered the most efficient means of production. To reduce building cost and the expense of tooling, the boats are being built from the mold. Normally, there are a limited number of options to make assembly line production more efficient in terms of cost.
Beside production based boat construction, there are other types of boats built in a customized manner. These boats are usually build in a limited budget often by industry amateurs.
If you are the one who wish someone to build a custom boat for you, you may need to consider the option called “Semi Custom Boats”. These boats are built from a single mold in order to make the hull and decks identical. However, the builders do allow the owners to pick out the interior and some other options. For a semi-custom boat construction, you need to lookout for small or mid-sized boat building shops and professionals who typically provide such services.
A true custom build boat can be very expensive as it is a one on one project and designed & build specially from scratch for a single customer on demand.
So, in order to save some money, it is always a better idea to give a look to a used boat market because people who have built custom or even semi-custom boats in the past do put them on the market for sale at some point or another. This is a way to save some real money on a custom build boat, as you won’t be paying a professional to design the boat from scratch.
