Does Aire make custom boats

I want to buy a 12 or 12.5 cat for class 4+ boating. I love my aire cat that I have now and would like to get another. Does anyone know if aire builds custom size wave destroyers?

i believe aire does not do "custom" boats (other than color) but they have prototype patterns for 12' and 13' wave destroyers that they will build. i don't think they will change the tube size or length from their existing patterns. maybe if you wanted 5 of them though... you should call them, winter is the time for them to build boats.

I can confirm they have 12 and 13 ft wave destroyer patterns (I have a 12) and can make you one at an additional cost over stock sizes. If there is enough demand for these sizes they will surely offer them standard someday such as when they started selling that 9 ft trib boat.

What about Sotar Legend? They make a stock size of 12'-6" that they'll add or subtract 6" at no additional cost.

Custom typically= big bucks. Is there really not a stock cat tube that works for your needs?

I called aire and they said maybee. I told them if the they don't want to sell me the boat then I'll get a sotar. I'm sure sotar makes a great boat, but I curently have an aire and love it. I also like the almost double length warranty.

Thanks for all the input.

Dave
