Default Lightning Custom Boats?

Any opinions? I'm looking at a 2005 29xs with low hours but haven't seen many of these. Anyone have experience with this boat builder?
Thanks

They are a small boat builder out of Florida. I have seen him post and sell boats on S&F.

Looks like these guys are in Lake View Terrace, CA according to their website. The build 50-100 boats/year and have been in bus. since 1998. Ring any bells?

Dont know how accurate this info is but a few years back Ultra Custom Boats (CA) had a sub division line called Lightening.....the division was sold off to a CA builder who was building them separate from Ultra for a few years....try calling Ultra for some info if its the same company I am talking about.
