BCGP Joins with MetalCraft to Offer Aluminum Boat Series

December 6, 2010

Brunswick Commercial and Government Products (BCGP) has entered into a supply agreement with MetalCraft Marine, Inc (MCM) to promote a series of high-performance aluminum boats. BCGP currently offers 16 models of commercialized Boston Whaler fiberglass boats, and eight Impact rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs). Under the agreement with MCM, BCGP’s product offering will be expanded to include five aluminum models ranging from 28 ─ 45 ft.

“MetalCraft has a solid history of building superior quality aluminum boats for commercial and government applications,” said Jeremy Davis, BCGP’s sales manager. “They are particularly adept at producing high-performance boats, which is critical in this arena. By joining forces with an established aluminum producer with a solid reputation, BCGP immediately gains access to proven product that complements our existing offering.”

MCM is a designer and builder of high-speed aluminum patrol boats, fire/rescue craft, and specialty vessels ranging from 22 ─ 70 ft. An industry leader in jet propulsion, MetalCraft has been designing and building high-quality commercial and government boats since 1987.

According to the terms of the agreement, BCGP and MCM will offer five new aluminum models called the Sentry series. Each model can be configured for a specific mission, including patrol, special operations, or workboat applications, based on the needs of the purchasing agency. Power options will include inboard diesels, jet drives, sterndrives and outboard engines.
