Hard to beat Royal Huisman.

These days they just build megayachts, like Athena and Meteor. 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.
