These days they just build megayachts, like Athena
. But there are some really nice, smaller designs on the used market. Many executed in aluminum, which is not a material most builders seem comfortable in. I've seen alu R-Hs as small as 33'.
The French do a lot with aluminum. Might look into French yards. It has historically been a custom-boat niche market.
