Steve Salmon is 'fairly' unique, certainly in the UK, he's been making custom rigging components for nearly 20 years, trim indicators, controls, bow ballast tank pick-ups (a rare thing in the US, but absolutely essential, which I've never really understood) and many custom components for racers & powerboaters alike. His work is superb, though he can be a wee bit slow to deliver!
I have plans to stock his product lines, so hopefully, if someone needs something, they can have it imediately.
There are a couple of necomers to this scene, namely Cyco & Hotshot marine, both of which are producing custom stainless work, including controls.
I don't know of any European based manufacturers, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
