I'm not that hip....
Anyway the issue with ferro remains the same, labour and all other parts remains the same cost so why would you build in an untrusted material that will guarantee a poor resale?

Choosing a boat based on resale value is a bit like picking a girlfriend based on how desirable other guys might find her after you break up.

I chose my ferro boat because she happened to be a long keel, centre cockpit ketch - with a dog house. I knew looking at her she would make a great blue water cruiser.
however, I agree, I'm not sure I would build a ferro nowadays...although the advances in materials would make them even better??? myall99.jpg 5.67KB 0 downloads

It is difficult to justify building any boat material these days, unless you have a specific need the market can not offer you. Such as racing design for instance. The cost of building the Hull is a mere fraction of the overall build cost and many builders have mistakenly thought this the other way around.
