MAKO Construction

MAKO® fiberglass outboard boats have been recognized multiple times for excellence in customer satisfaction by the National Marine Manufacturers Association®. This means that thousands of surveys, returned by buyers of MAKO boats, reported satisfaction ratings above 90 points on a 100-point scale. The Customer Satisfaction Index Award is a tribute to the fact that we are delivering the promise of quality that has made MAKO legendary.

Here's a detailed look at how MAKO boats are designed and built in our state-of-the-art boat factory in Miami, Oklahoma.


Legendary Performance and Durability

For half a century, MAKO has been crafting durable, comfortable and highly fishable inshore and offshore saltwater fishing boats for bluewater families and hardcore sport anglers alike.





3D Modeling and CAD Precision

At the leading edge of fiberglass construction technology, MAKO uses CAD (Computer Aided Design) and 3D modeling to ensure that the performance-intent of the designers and engineers are realized in the final product.





Superior Fit and Finish

Careful planning and construction processes result in exceptional fit and finish. Every component of the boat locks into place with the smallest tolerances for a superior appearance and long-term durability.





Open-Molded Construction

Open-molded fiberglass construction in parts like hulls and decks results in extremely durable and precisely-formed parts that perform as good as they look.





Closed-Molded Construction

Components like consoles and compartment lids are built using a technique known as closed-molded construction, resulting in parts that are gelcoated inside and out for a quality finish, great looks and easy cleaning.





Pro Skiff Construction

The MAKO Pro Skiff family is based on the AIV hull. This award-winning hull offers a quick holeshot, a smooth, dry ride, great stability and top performance. Clear water channels allow air-free water to flow to the prop for better acceleration and handling, and an integrated bow anti-spray design keeps spray out of the boat.





Bay Boat Construction

MAKO bay boats are fast, stable and versatile inshore fishing machines with a sharp bow entry to cut through chop and a flatter hull at the transom for shallow performance, plus our exclusive Rapid Planing System (18 LTS & 21 LTS) for improved holeshot and handling.





Offshore Construction

Our legendary MAKO offshore boats are revered by their owners as overbuilt, ultra-safe and eminently fishable pelagic predators with the creature comforts to keep everyone comfortable on the open ocean.





MAKO Assurance 5+Life

  • Limited Lifetime Structural Hull Warranty
  • 5-Year Stem-to- Stern Warranty
