Hmmm, interesting debate. I am in New Zealand. We see a clear difference between production - a manufactured product and what you call custom - built by a boatbuilder. There is a reason they are cheaper. The boats that do best in round the buoys club racing here are NOT production. The production products lose chainplates, keels, interior liners, rudders, genoa tracks......and the list goes on. And they don't win races. This type of racing here is in any style of boat, mostly cruisers being raced and many of these boats will do regular ocean passages.
