The Metal Shark 26 Relentless is a welded aluminum high performance center console with a versatile, crew-friendly layout ideal for law enforcement, security, and response missions. Relentless series models are characterized by their performance hulls and by the urethane-sheathed closed-cell foam collar that provides impact protection during docking, boarding, or alongside maneuvers. Other notable features of the 26 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 26 Relentless provides outstanding speed and maneuverability, yet still provides a comfortable, dry ride in rough waters. The 26 Relentless offers precision handling and it turns on a dime. Equipped with twin outboards for up to 600 total horsepower, the vessel is responsive and highly maneuverable yet handles predictably while operating at speed. Metal Shark is an OEM installer for all major engine brands and can equip the boat as required to suit virtually any customer preference.

Deck Layout

The 26 Relentless features a roomy layout, with ample freeboard and a flat non-skid floor running from bow to stern. Integrated dive reliefs on both the port and starboard side facilitate boarding and recovery operations. In standard configuration, the 26 Relentless utilizes a slightly console-forward design to create extra space aft, providing plenty of room to work or to stow backboards and other specialized gear.

Console & Helm

The 26 Relentless features a welded aluminum console with integrated hard top, which is available in a fold-down configuration that allows it to be quickly stowed for transport. A full-height windshield provides protection from the elements and enables all-weather operation. A full curtain enclosure may be added. At the helm, a large dash area easily accommodates all controls and electronics, allowing for ideal placement and easy, intuitive operation. Like all Metal Sharks, the 26 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 26 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 shock-mitigating seating options available. Alternately, conventional seats or a leaning post may be installed. In addition to the various helm seat options, the 26 Relentless features a fixed bench seat integrated into the forward console.
