The Quaycraft range are some of the best you can get, try here: http://www.model-dockyard.com/acatalog/1_48_Scale.html

In the past I would scratch-build my ship's boats as nothing looked much like the real thing until I discovered this range.

More of a shot of the tug rather than the boat but this is a Quaycraft resin ships boat and I'm sure that you can see it looks a lot better than a vac formed unit. 

They have such an extensive range you can get just about anything you want and I was also seriously thinking about replacing the boats on my Resolve and my Envoy.  There is another chap making very similar items as well, if you want his e-mail addres send me a PM.
