The Metal Shark 28 Relentless is a welded aluminum high performance center console vessel designed for inland, coastal, and offshore use. Its versatile, crew-friendly layout makes it an ideal platform for military, law enforcement, security, and response missions. Our Relentless-class models are characterized by their performance hulls and by their sheathed foam collar fendering system that provides impact protection during docking, boarding, or alongside maneuvers. Other notable features of the 28 Relentless are its wide-open layout, with a large flat non-skid floor that provides sure footing, and wide gunnels that allow for easy access from bow to stern. Integrated dive reliefs on both the port and starboard side facilitate boarding and recovery operations.

Hull Design

With a high performance hull designed by renowned naval architect Michael Peters, the 28 Relentless provides outstanding speed and maneuverability, yet still provides a comfortable, dry ride in rough waters. Shown here with twin 300 HP outboard engines that propel the vessel to top speeds well in excess of 60 MPH, it is also available with gas stern drive or diesel waterjet power. Metal Shark is an OEM installer for all major engine brands and can equip the boat as required to suit virtually any customer preference. With its wide reverse chines and near-perfect balance, the 28 Relentless offers precision handling and it turns on a dime. The vessel is responsive and highly maneuverable yet handles predictably while giving pursuit

Deck Layout

The 28 Relentless boasts a wide-open deck layout, with a large flat non-skid floor that provides sure footing, and wide gunnels that allow for easy access from bow to stern. Integrated dive reliefs on both the port and starboard side facilitate boarding and recovery operations. In standard configuration, the 28 Relentless features a slightly console-forward design, which creates an enormous aft deck area. This wide-open workspace provides plenty of room to work or to stow backboards and other specialized gear. A second row of cockpit seating may be easily added.

Console & Helm

The 28 Relentless features a welded aluminum console with integrated hard top. The hard top is available in a fold-down configuration that allows it to be quickly stowed for transport. Metal Shark’s use of pillarless fritted-fit glass substantially enhances visibility by reducing dangerous blind spots. A large dash area easily accommodates all controls and electronics, allowing for ideal placement and easy, intuitive operation. The vessel shown here is equipped with Evinrude’s ICON controls, Optimus 360 joystick control system, and large Furuno multifunction screen with GPS, radar, and FLIR camera. Like all Metal Sharks, the 28 Relentless is a fully custom vessel that is built to order, so the customer may determine the dash components as well as their layout.

Seating

Many seating options are available. The 28 Relentless is shown here with side by side SHOX shock-mitigating high performance seats with fold-down pistol-grip armrests and drop-out bottoms. There are numerous options available in terms of shock mitigating seats, or alternately, conventional seats or a leaning post may be installed. Customers may choose fixed second-row seating, or seats that fold away into the cockpit sole. In addition to the various helm seat options, the 28 Relentless features a fixed bench seat integrated into the forward console.
