Hi, Kevin:

A cursory search of Peter Hunn's book, Tail Fins and Two-Tones, offers a reference about a local heating company in Spokane making these boats.

Reference
Hunn, Peter. Tail Fins and Two-Tones. Marblehead, MA: Devereaux Books, 2006. pp. 44-45.

Fiberglass is a popular material, more expensive than aluminum, and a lot more labor intensive to build, but can be molded to sleek, fancy shapes.
Carbon fiber is similar to fiberglass, but a lot stronger. Carbon fiber is very expensive as a material, and the labor is very similar to fiberglass.
