I'm a big fan of 'custom' boats, cars, and motorcycles. As sailingdog says, building them is a great way to do it, but it does get expensive and time consuming.
My preference is to buy ragged out, but solid boats for a song, then customize it to fit my needs.
I've picked up a few boats that went real cheap because the interiors were completely missing, no-one bought them because they were 'bare', personally I prefer them that way because I can get right to building the interior I want without having to tear out the old stuff and disposing of it.
I keep saying I'll build a boat from ground up, but I've yet to find a plan I wouldn't want to change somehow, so I keep with my conversions.
