Metal Shark delivers patrol boat in Kentucky

Metal Shark Boats completed the delivery of a 21 Relentless fire, rescue and patrol vessel for the Pendleton Rescue Squad's operations in Kentucky.

A custom-built derivative of the Coast Guard's SPC-SW standard platform response vessel, the boat will serve as the squad's primary rescue and firefighting vessel. A sister boat has been built as a demonstration platform for Metal Shark's sales team, and it is available for testing nationwide.

“Our design team recognized the nearly universal appeal of this flexible, fully customizable platform,” national sales manager Dean Jones said in a statement. “Subsequently, we've decided to make the boat available for testing to interested agencies nationwide.”
