Default Production Boat Vs Custom Boat?

I am shopping for a boat and came across several production boat manufacturers and a few custom boat builders. In comparing parts, uniqueness and quality, I found a custom boat to offer lots of customization. See below

============================

Extreme Custom Boats (ECB)is a new name in custom boat building, however we've been serving some of the big name boat builders for over 15 years. Our company has over 30 years combined experience building and servicing custom boats. From our experienced gelcoaters and laminators, to our expert riggers, you'll enjoy world class quality and durability for years to come.

At ECB, we offer the best products and materials when building your custom boat, from Valspar Gelcoats, Mercruiser Engine packages, Beede Gauges and Gaffrig Shifters. Then we top it all off with Marine grade carpet and upholstery, billet bezels, and Extreme Sound Systems.

Extreme Custom Boats is proud to be recognized as one of the premier up and coming boat builders in the industry. You've been waiting, and finally there's a custom boat builder who uses the right parts and delivers a quality product without over-inflated prices.

=====

Al the big name parts are used in these boats and these boat look great! I think I've decided to go with a custom boat. I don't plan on taking mine offshore, but as far as custom boats go....thoughts from the offshore crowd?

They are all wood and fiberglass.........If you go with Merc power than your choice comes down to your personal preference. Check out your builders warranty, look at his rigging and if your happy with the layout of the boat than it doesn't really matter what brand it is. It seems to me that most of the west coast builders use all the same parts, same cleats, same bezels, same grab rails , same cup holders etc., (same parts just different custom boats) Seems like a "custom boat" is one that doesn't have a standard "Sea Ray" gel coat scheme. Gaffrig controls are nice. Never heard of those guages though. Like I said, I've been in quite a few boats and they are pretty much all the same materials in all of them until you get in to higher end boats........Kevlar, Ostrich leather, carbon fiber (you get the picture).

Boater 1, are you looking at a Cat or V. What size of boat are you looking for. What price range are you looking for.

There are a handful of customer builders. Good luck.
