The Metal Shark 24 Relentless is a hybrid multi-mission inshore patrol boat designed to operate inshore and in shallow-water areas where draft-limited craft cannot. With its variable deadrise hull and stout welded-aluminum construction, the proven 24 Relentless offers outstanding performance in both calm and rough waters. It is an ideal boat for law enforcement, security, and response missions.

Hull Design

Thanks to its progressive-draft hull design with shallow aft deadrise that transitions to a sharp forward entry, the 24 Relentless operates in shallow bodies of water yet still provides a comfortable, dry ride in rough waters. With power options up to twin 200 HP outboards, the 24 Relentless is surprisingly quick. This proven performer is also highly capable as a towboat, with a towing capacity of 20,000 lbs. Metal Shark is an OEM installer for all major engine brands and can equip the 24 Relentless as required to suit virtually any customer preference.

Deck Layout

The 24 Relentless features a wide-open layout, with a large flat non-skid floor, low freeboard, and wide gunnels that provide sure footing and nearly 360-degree accessibility. Integrated dive reliefs have been provided on both the port and starboard side, which facilitate on-water boarding as well as personnel recovery operations. A durable urethane-sheathed, closed-cell foam collar fendering system adds even more utility, without robbing valuable floor space. Other mission-enhancing features of the 24 Relentless include a large non-skid forward working platform, numerous console, top, and seating options, and ample stowage space including a removable, lockable toolbox.

Console & Helm

The 24 Relentless features a welded aluminum console with integrated hard top. Another available option is a fold-down console, which may be quickly stowed for transport. A large, fixed three-panel windshield with automotive-style fritted glass provides optimum protection and visibility. A large dash houses all electronics, and controls and are easily accessible to the operator. The vessel shown here is equipped with the Raymarine AXIOM Package, which includes a 12” touch screen display with GPS, radar, a heading sensor, a sounder and transducers. It also includes a Raymarine VHF and Antenna and a Ritchie navigator backlit compass. Like all Metal Sharks, the 24 Relentless is a fully custom vessel that is built to order, so the customer may determine the dash components as well as their layout.


The 24 Relentless is available with multiple seating options, including a range of military-stye shock-mitigating seats. The vessel shown here has been equipped with a leaning post helm seat with flip-up bolster cushion to allow for comfortable seated or standing operation. The seat is integrated into a welded aluminum base housing two large locking storage lockers, which may be configured as weapons lockers or for general storage. A fixed bench seat integrated into the forward console provides additional seating, with space beneath to carry a cooler or other gear.

Choice of the United States Coast Guard

The Metal Shark 24 Relentless was selected by the US Coast Guard as the platform for its Special Purpose Craft – Shallow Water (SPC-SW) response boat thanks to its shallow-water capability, ride, and reputation. Metal Shark delivered 90 SPC-SW vessels to the US Coast Guard during the course of this program, which was announced in 2008. Metal Shark SPC-SW vessels are still in service today and stand as a testament to the durability of this proven platform.
