    Greetings fellow boat lovers!

    New to this site, I like what I see.

    I am not a professional boat builder, but I know what I want and like. I've somewhat designed a boat and would like to proceed to have a pro design and build this boat for me (no need to ask,,,the answer is "yes, I am crazy").

    This is an 18' center console in a flats design...very light.

    If successful, I'd like to take the boat to production for others.

    Is there anyone out there that does this sort of thing? Would the "partner" the design/build?

    Striper :)

    Hello Striper,

    If you begin building these boats for profit, I can put you on our custom builders program. Its basically a 20% discount on all building materials we stock.

    We are a small custom builder that specializes in shallow draft all welded aluminum boats. Would be interested in talking to you about your design. We can design and prototype quicker and at much lower cost and commitment that the big boys. Can go to market if you like since we already do that.

    You can contact me at

    Good luck.
