Each of our yachts is a wholly bespoke custom creation designed and built by Metal Shark, a leading supplier of custom aluminum vessels for the U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, and the militaries of over 50 U.S. partner nations worldwide.
Metal Shark’s in-house team of over 60 naval architects and maritime engineers provides a formidable engineering resource unmatched by any recreational yacht builder anywhere.
All Metal Shark Yachts are 100% digitally designed down to the smallest detail using 3D parametric modeling software, allowing the entire vessel including all of its spaces and each of its components to be realized in a digital 3D form. This allows the yacht to be visualized n three-dimensional form in advance of construction, viewing all working areas and interior spaces.
Metal Shark’s digital design and all-aluminum construction guarantee precise tolerances and allow for near-limitless customization, meaning that the owner of a Metal Shark Yacht never needs to sacrifice one element of functionality to gain another. The vessel’s arrangements, systems, and capabilities are all designed and built specifically to suit the owner’s unique personal requirements, down to the smallest detail.
Metal Shark’s in-house engineering team boasts experts across the entire spectrum of relevant disciplines from structural to electrical, systems, and propulsion, assuring that onboard components work together within the allotted space, and that ample power generation and power management considerations are given for their ongoing use in off-grid environments. Systems are radically over-engineered with redundancies in place, and then built and installed with military-spec precision, putting an end to the endless troubleshooting required on most yachts. This eliminates vulnerabilities while liberating owners and crews from nuisances and headaches common on conventional yachts.
A Metal Shark Yacht is not for everyone. They are imposing, commercial-grade, rugged and tough. With their wave-crushing aluminum construction and chiseled military-derived styling, they are radical in comparison to the sea of soft, delicate yachts which define the yachting status quo. However, for the select few, a Metal Shark Yacht provides unprecedented opportunities for global exploration without sacrifice or compromise, putting the world within reach.
Metal Shark has partnered with naval architecture firm Incat Crowther, global leader in the design of high speed aluminum catamaran vessels, to offer a range of extensively proven catamaran hull forms. Read more on the advantages of our catamaran hulls here “Advantages”.
