Default custom hull build

Who would I go to if I wanted a hull built from a mold similar to the one in the ad below? I'd eventually want a cigarette-style hull w/ twin I/O center console (just like the Apache in the ad). Just the hull and cap. I'm just wondering if there are builders out there that can do it, or will I have a hard time finding someone? Just figured I'd throw the question out there to hopefully hear from the experts.

We've actually been kicking around building an I/O center console at Active Thunder based on the 33 Active Thunder Evolution AVH. While a lot of people say "that would be cool", no one really steps up.

Thanks guys. My grandfather had Mirage build him a hull way back in 1976 from a mold someone had (not sure who exactly). Single I/O center console offshore racing style 29ft. He built the rest himself - open fisherman style. It is still in tip top shape today. I grew up on that boat and LOVE it. The thing is as old as I am but still looks better than any other boat I've seen. I'm prob a little biased though

That's where I'd go. Brian is a stand-up guy too.
