Custom vs Mass produced

I have been cruising the for sale sites looking at boats and had a question about custom built boats. I have run across several where I go to try and find a review on it and it turns out to be a custom one off or something like that. They are usually priced pretty low.

Is that because there is only one so there are no statistics about when parts of it will fail or other design faults?

Are boats like this just huge headaches from a maintenance perspective?

Out of curiosity how much does it cost to have a boat entirely custom built? What would you be hoping to accomplish but doing that?
