Not for the price they're asking. I got quotes on those a few years ago and laughed at the numbers. You can buy a rigged 20' glass tiller for the base price of a Kingfisher.

Lund and Alumacraft by far have the most complete and best lineup from top to bottom. crestliner if you want welded. Smokercraft, Polarcraft and G3 have some nice models as well

I'll add the three to stay away from. Bass Pro's Trackers followed by Smoker/Sylvan. Same boat company. Had a Smoker that I named my soaker craft and after a couple of years, bit the bullet and got a Lund. Among the tin boats, the best laid out.

I have been happy with my past experiences with Alumacraft and Lund, currently I have an Alumacraft Competitor Sport 175 and wouldnt hesitate to buy Alumacraft again.

My biggest complaint would be the lack of and/or poorly thought out storage. As far as quality, I never had any hull, transom, or floor issues, Eventually there was some stress cracks on the fiberglass console, I'm guessing from flexing, that cause the full windshield to not line up properly.
