How Are We Able to Offer Top Quality at Such a Great Price?
With MAKO®, you get a lot more boat for your money, and it's easy to understand why. Our company is the volume leader in boat manufacturing and sales, allowing us to source materials at lower prices and operate with lower profit margins. And we use Lean Sigma manufacturing principles for maximum efficiency–the same business principles used by leading aerospace, automobile, and medical companies. The end result is that you get a top-quality boat at the best possible, NO HAGGLE NO HASSLE® price, and backed by our MAKO Assurance Warranty–the best factory warranty in saltwater boats.
1. The Sales Volume Leader
White River Marine Group - The #1 Recreational Boat Manufacturer in the World
MAKO boats are built by White River Marine Group, the largest boat builder in the world by volume. Higher volume means lower prices for top quality raw materials and components. This is because serving one large customer is less costly for suppliers than servicing several smaller ones. We pass along our lower costs for materials and components in the form of better retail prices for the final product.
2. Lean Sigma Manufacturing Practices
Eliminate Waste to Deliver High Quality at Lower Cost
MAKO boats are manufactured using Lean Sigma principles that sustain a culture of continuous improvement, affecting every step of the manufacturing process. Our team members systematically identify and eliminate waste, like defects, excess inventory and unnecessary movement of materials. By utilizing everyone's talents to the fullest, we are able to deliver better quality and value in the boats we build.
3. Vertical Integration
We Build Many of the Components for Our Boats
That's what "Vertical Integration" means. By making many of our own systems and component parts, like livewells, consoles, seats, fuel tanks and trailers, we eliminate costs associated with buying from outside suppliers. By cutting out "middle man" charges for transportation, overhead and profit margins, we are able to give you more boat for the money.
4. NO HAGGLE NO HASSLE Pricing
Fair Prices and Good Deals for Everyone, Every Day, Every Place
Most boats are sold through a process that requires negotiation to reach the final price. This means that many buyers pay more than they have to, while great negotiators get the best deals. MAKO pricing policy presents the final price up front for everyone to see. And since we need less profit per boat to run our business, our retail prices are pre-set at levels most others reach only by aggressive negotiation. MAKO Boats NO HAGGLE NO HASSLE prices are consistent across the country, from websites, to advertisements, to retailer showrooms, so everyone can expect the best deal available every day, no matter where you shop.
