The Metal Shark 55 Endurance is a welded aluminum pilothouse catamaran specially designed for law enforcement, port security, pilot, dive support, fire rescue response, or other applications where offshore capability, extended range, and crew capacity may be key considerations. Like all Metal Sharks, each Endurance vessel may be fully customized to meet virtually any mission requirement. Available in a wide range of models ranging from 45′ to 105′, our Endurance-class catamarans serve as extremely stable, dependable, and efficient platforms.
Each Metal Shark Endurance-class catamaran features a proven Metal Shark hull design that has been engineered and built to precise tolerances. To achieve its superior hull life rating of 30+ years, the vessel’s hull, deck, and pilothouse structure are composed entirely of heavy, welded plates of premium-grade 5086 aluminum alloy. The 55 Endurance features a beam of 20′ which results in tremendous stability while at rest or underway. Endurance vessels may be equipped with straight-shaft inboards, water jets, or pod propulsion systems.
At the heart of the 55 Endurance’s crew-friendly design is its spacious, clutter-free deck arrangement that offers massive wide-open work spaces and allows for easy, surefooted passage from bow to stern. Wide, non-skid walkways feature low-level LED lighting for night missions, and careful consideration has been given to the placement of all rails and grab handles. Port and starboard dive recesses and the full-width swim platform provide easy access to and from the water. Heavy duty rubber rub rail provides impact protection. The vessel may be fitted with a urethane-sheathed foam-filled collar for full fendering capability.
