How much does it cost to fiberglass a boat?

I've been told that in production a typical fiberglass motorboat cost about US$2.50 - 3.00 per lb to build. I was also told this includes labor costs. Thus a 4,000 bare boat might cost up to US$12,000.

Similarly, how much does it cost to re fiberglass a boat?

Most hired-out repairs of any type are roughly 50 percent labor and 50 percent materials. Not so with this fix—hull repairs are all about labor. The repairs on this boat would cost roughly $3,000 at a shop. But the materials only cost about $250 and the buffer about $150!

How much does it cost to build a boat?

For a 25' boat, the gelcoat, glass, resin and fuel tank will be ~$10,000, tops. You can probably mold the hull, liner, and console for ~120 manhours, so factor another $3,000 for labor with overhead. Figure another 60 manhours for assembly, or $1,500. So materials and labor would be ~$15,000.
