The 28 Courageous features a proven Metal Shark hull design that has been engineered and built to deliver maximum reliability. 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 twin outboard power, the Metal Shark 28 Courageous planes quickly and features responsive handling. Top speed when powered by twin 250-horsepower four stroke outboards is in excess of 45 knots. Metal Shark is an OEM supplier for all major outboard brands and can rig according to customer preference or fleet commonality requirements
The 28 Courageous is available as shown with an extended hard top that covers the entire aft cockpit, providing shelter during rescue / recovery missions. Aft-mounted ladders provide easy access to the top’s non-skid coated working surface, where removable rails allow a crew to work alongside elevated structures. A short T-top, Bimini top, full canvas enclosure, and other top options are available.
