Metal Shark returns to recreational market

Metal Shark is back in the recreational market with its 35-foot deep-vee Courageous, the company announced.

Built on parent company Gravois Aluminum Boats' underpinnings, the 35 Courageous represents Metal Shark's return to its recreational roots.

"Courageous is the ideal platform for buyers seeking unparalleled performance and rugged durability and offers an innovative alternative to fiberglass," Metal Shark president Chris Allard said in a statement. "Gravois has built high-quality recreational boats for the past 30 years and Courageous is Metal Shark's evolution of that fabled bloodline."

A subsidiary of Gravois Aluminum Boats LLC, Metal Shark specializes in boats for military and commercial uses.
