Generally not considered to be. There are a few good ones out there but the majority are not worth spending money on. Their resale value is virtually nil due to their rep (due to all the junky ones).

At one time ferro boats were huge bargains due to their rep, even the good ones, as they all got tarred with the same brush but now you can get needy fiberglass boats so cheap that ferro is not really worth considering.

That is unless you can get one of the good ones for the price of the junk from an owner who is tired of trying to sell it.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
