Unique Custom Sportfish Boat Opportunities Available Now - Jim Smith, F&S

Owning a custom sportfishing boat is like owning a piece of art. Both can take a very long time to complete and are created through the hard work and expertise of the "artist". Just don't get any fish blood on that Monet hanging in your home! Custom Boats are special, in most cases they are one-of-a-kind as they were built for a specific purpose or have defining characteristics of how the original owner planned to use it. The number of custom boats sold every year in the U.S. pales in comparison to the number of production-style boats like Viking, Hatteras, and Bertram, simply because they take longer to complete due to the personalization and construction process. Still, there is simply nothing like owning a hand-built boat that no one else has. For these reasons, most high-quality, low hour custom sport fishing boats don't last very long on the market. Custom Boats also tend to hold their value when up for brokerage and some owners can even sell their custom boat for close to what they paid for it! While not all custom boats are an investment financially, they are most definitely an investment in quality of life.


United Yacht Sales is happy to bring you several custom boat opportunities below, some of which are brand-new to the market. Click on any boat to see more information, photos, and how to contact the United Broker who has the listing.
