The 23 Courageous boasts a proven Metal Shark hull design that has been engineered and built to deliver maximum economy, performance, and longevity. To achieve its superior hull life rating, the vessel’s hull, deck, and console are composed entirely of heavy, precision-welded plates of corrosion-resistant 5086 aluminum-magnesium alloy. With its 8’ beam the 23 Courageous may be easily trailered, while on the water its impressive 20,000 lb. towing capacity gets the job done. While shown here with stern drive propulsion, the 23 Courageous is also available with single or twin outboard power up to 300 HP. Metal Shark is an OEM supplier for all major outboard brands and can rig according to customer preference or fleet commonality requirements.
The 23 Courageous features a wide-open layout with flat floors from bow to stern that allow for easy 360-degree deck access. The vessel is easily handled by a lone operator, and offers outstanding visibility from the helm. Other mission-enhancing features include a self-bailing cockpit with oversized 6” scuppers, a large forward working platform, 20,000 lbs. towing capacity, and ample stowage space including a removable, lockable toolbox.
