  • Hull ID Numbers - HELP !

    Hello fellow MAKO owners. I recently ran across an opportunity on another boat. Only problem is the owner is not sure of the year of manufature. The Hull ID is 134310781-M171-082, From this it looks to me it is a 1982 model 17' Angler. Any experts straighten me out here please?

      I looked at that and it did not apply to this series of numbers. Very confusing

        My understanding is that the year is designated by the last 2 digits in the 9-character string. That would make this boat an '81. Mine's an 88 and the string ends that way.

        It looks like Mako appended their own designation after the 9-character mandatory string - looks like a model and some type of variant.

        Good luck with it.

          I wonder if it is a 81 model 17 that was sold in 82. The boat dealers wernt shy about restamping the aluminum plate on holdover boats. The factory may have also done this. I have a 1980-81 20 footer. I also wondered about this and when I regestered it the dnr took it as a 81. dave.,
