LOL. I get that question all the time.
Bottom line is that it costs as much as you want to put into it. Polaris builds RIB's to order, so the cost depends on what you want stuck on in addition to a hull, tubes, and motor (and all that is highly variable as well.)
Figure out what you are interested in (they make aluminum hulls in several thicknesses: 1/8", 5/32", and 1/4" being standard), and lengths from 8'6" up to well over 40' (though 33' is the largest they list on the site.)
I spent about a year talking to Guy via phone before we finalized hull, motor, and amenities (I wanted near-top-of-the-line stuff, but couldn't really afford it); he was quite willing to run up the design without firm commitment. I suggest giving him a call if you really want to know what you're looking at.
