The Metal Shark 33 Relentless is a proven twin-engine center console vessel that has been selected for use by the United States Navy’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program and is currently deployed worldwide. Thanks to its high performance Michael Peters hull design, the 33 Relentless offers exceptional performance in a variety of conditions. The vessel is ideally suited for use in a wide array of applications where speed, maneuverability, and offshore capability are required, including open water patrol, vessel interdiction, and shore-based insertion and extraction missions. The 33 Relentless has been designed as a crew-friendly boat, and as such has been thoroughly optimized for movement, visibility, protection, and overall functionality.
Deck Features: In standard configuration, the Metal Shark 33’ Relentless features seating for two crew, sheltered by a hard T-top with an extending/retracting overhead canopy. The T-top provides over 80” of headroom with weather protection curtains that can be added to further shelter crew and passengers from the elements. The folding T-top is also easily stowed and secured for trailering and/or hoisting by two crew in less than three minutes. Wide, 20” walkways enable easy crew movement fore and aft. The oversized bow door allows easy transit on/off the vessel, while port and starboard dive reliefs allow easy access to the water. (Vessel shown here equipped with additional crew seating as specified by U.S. Navy FMS.)
Helm: The 33 Relentless console features an ergonomic layout designed to facilitate operation. Controls and navigation equipment have all been placed within easy reach the coxswain and navigator. The throttles have been situated so that they fall easily in hand without the coxswain having to lean out of the seat. The crew has been afforded outstanding visibility courtesy of a large, three-panel Diamond Seaglaze windshield with self-parking wiper.
Seating: Like all Metal Sharks, the 33 Relentless can be fully customized to meet virtually any requirement, whether military, law enforcement, commercial, or even recreational use. The vessel shown here has been equipped for maximum crew seating, but may be configured in a more conventional manner to significantly increase cockpit space. Available seating options range from leaning post seats with storage, standup seats with drop-out bolsters, or military-grade shock-mitigating seating.
Console & Integrated Hard Top: Welded aluminum console with integrated folding T-top that is easily stowed and secured for trailering and/or hoisting by two crew in less than three minutes.
Electronics Pod: Communications systems, spotlight controller, and auxiliary switches are mounted in the overhead electronics pod with easy maintenance access provided. White/red overhead LED lighting is standard.
Engines: With twin outboard power, the 33 Relentless has been designed and built to perform reliably in a wide range of environments with a minimum of maintenance. Shown here are the welded, heavy-duty engine protection bar and integrated aft towing bit.
