Metal Shark Boats today announced that it is accelerating manufacturing its commercial-grade aluminum boats in response to the cleanup efforts being launched across the Gulf Coast.

Based in Jeanerette, La., the Metal Shark crew has witnessed firsthand the effects of the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil spill on the coastal environment.

"A swift resolution to this crisis is essential, as the health of our wetlands and coastal areas are vital to millions of Gulf Coast residents," said Metal Shark Boats president Chris Allard. "By accelerating our manufacturing operations, we're better equipped to support the massive and ongoing cleanup effort."

Agencies in need of support vessels can contact the manufacturer directly at (337) 364-0777, or via e-mail at sales@metalsharkboats.com. Metal Shark sells directly to qualified government and commercial organizations and custom-builds all boats to mission specifications.
