Louisiana-based shipbuilder Metal Shark has announced the launch of its new website.

The new metalsharkboats.com features an all new design boasting fresh content, increased functionality, and robust search tools that facilitate navigation within the company’s vast product portfolio.

“Metal Shark has expanded its focus to include a diverse range of markets, so we tasked ourselves to create an easily navigable website that allows us to reach the right customers with the right products and message,” explained Josh Stickles, Metal Shark’s vice president of marketing. “Visitors to our website will now be able to quickly locate content that’s relevant to them, within a clean and modern framework that will accommodate future needs and continue to grow along with the company.”

Visitors to the new website are greeted by a full-screen video montage of Metal Shark vessels in action, showcasing key markets including military, law enforcement, fire rescue, pilot, and passenger vessel operators. From the homepage, numerous search options and a visual matrix help visitors drill down through over 125 pages of new content incorporating widespread use of high definition photos and video.

“Even as we continue to expand into new markets, we're always searching for ways to strengthen our connection with established audiences,” said Stickles. “Our new website will bring the Metal Shark experience to more customers in a more compelling way than ever before. With a busy year ahead, we'll be adding new models, reaching new markets, and giving people reasons to keep coming back.”

Key features of the website include:

• Over 45 minutes of streaming HD full-screen video, accessible from individual model pages as well as from a new video gallery.

• High-resolution image galleries with over 8 gigabytes of full size photos.

• Robust search tools that allow users to find Metal Shark models by market, by vessel type, by model series, or by keyword search.

• Market-specific subpages that communicate directly to specific customer types including military, law enforcement, fire rescue, pilots, passenger vessel operators, and others.

• New Download Center that consolidates brochures and other product literature in one place for easy download.

• Larger, easier to read layout with responsive display that better adapts to mobile browsers.
