Brunswick Commercial and Government Products recently entered into a supply agreement with MetalCraft Marine to promote a series of high-performance aluminum boats.

BCGP currently offers 16 models of commercialized Boston Whaler fiberglass boats and eight Impact rigid hull inflatable boats. Under the agreement with MetalCraft Marine, Brunswick's product offering will be expanded to include five aluminum models ranging from 28 to 45 feet.

"MetalCraft has a solid history of building superior-quality aluminum boats for commercial and government applications," said Jeremy Davis, Brunswick Commercial and Government Products sales manager, in a statement.

"They are particularly adept at producing high-performance boats, which is critical in this arena," he added. "By joining forces with an established aluminum producer with a solid reputation, BCGP immediately gains access to proven product that complements our existing offering."

According to the terms of the agreement, Brunswick and MetalCraft Marine will offer five new aluminum models called the "Sentry" series. Each model can be configured for a specific mission, including patrol, special operations or workboat applications, based on the needs of the purchasing agency. Power options will include inboard diesels, jet drives, sterndrives and outboard engines.
