The Metal Shark 28 Gravois is a welded aluminum high performance center console vessel designed for inland, coastal, and offshore use. 

With a high performance hull designed by renowned naval architects, the 28 Gravois provides outstanding speed and maneuverability, yet still provides a comfortable, dry ride in rough waters. Shown here with twin 300 HP Yamaha engines that propel the vessel to top speeds well in excess of 70 MPH, Metal Shark is an OEM installer for all major engine brands and can equip the boat as required to suit virtually any customer preference. The 28 Gravois offers precision handling and it turns on a dime.The vessel is responsive and highly maneuverable yet handles predictably while heading to your favorite fishing grounds.  

With a welded aluminum console with integrated hard top, the 28 Gravois also boasts a large dash that easily accommodates all controls and electronics, allowing for ideal placement and easy, intuitive operation. The vessel shown here is equipped with Garmin electronics, but like all Metal Sharks, this model is a fully custom vessel that is built to order, so the customer may determine the dash components as well as their layout.

The 28 Gravois features a roomy forward cockpit with non-skid cockpit sole and ample freeboard. There’s a large anchor locker forward and plenty of storage for all your gear. Other notable features 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.

Metal Shark is a leading shipyard supplying custom vessels for commercial, defense, and law enforcement applications worldwide. The company traces its origins to 1986, when Jeanerette, Louisiana-based Gravois Aluminum Boats began producing custom welded aluminum fishing boats for recreational anglers and commercial fishermen. Over the years, the Gravois family developed a loyal following among demanding Gulf Coast fishermen due to the rugged quality of their boats, which were often highly customized to suit the buyer’s needs.

In 2005, Gravois Aluminum Boats turned its attention to government and commercial market with the launch of Metal Shark. Since its launch, Metal Shark quickly established itself as a leading producer of custom aluminum boats for law enforcement, military, and commercial entities.  The company has experienced exponential growth under the stewardship of its actively involved owners, who have consistently re-invested in facilities, personnel, and technology. Today, Metal Shark  is the number one small boat provider to the U.S. Coast Guard and a leading supplier to the U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force, and the militaries of partner nations worldwide.

While Metal Shark often makes headlines for its numerous large government programs, these are just a part of the story. Increasingly, state and local law enforcement offices, fire departments, pilots associations, commercial interests, and recreational customers are turning to Metal Shark, too. The driving forces behind this continued success are an unwavering commitment to innovation through design and engineering excellence,  proven durability, and unparalleled customer support.
