They have over 500 boats in the recreational, passenger, military and law enforcement markets under their build belts. Now Metal Shark Boats, the government/commercial entity of Gravois Aluminum Boats, LLC, has its sights set on the pilot boat market with the construction of two such vessels earmarked for delivery in 2018. More specifically, the company is building 45-foot and 64-foot Defiant Pilot Boats for the U.S. Virgin Islands Port Authority at its Jeanerette, Louisiana, facility and for the Brazos Pilots Association of Freeport, Texas at its nearby Franklin facility, respectively.
