  • 1976 Mako 17

    New to this forum. An excellent site I definitely want to be a part of.

    I just purchased a 1976 17 Mako w/ 1976 85hp Johnson. Very low hrs. Boat was trailered and garage kept. Used 2-5 times a year. Boat is in pristine condition w/ all original cushions, bimin top. Nice ez loader trailer as well.

    I pd 3K. I thought it was a good deal. Your thoughts.

    I paid about the same for my 78 17' angler with a 78 Merc. It isn't in the same condition as yours. Matter of fact I know I overpaid for the boat. Bottom line was I liked the boat and I was helping a buddy out. Any pics? Also, welcome to the forum ! If you'd like, put your name in your signature line and check off the box that shows in it your posts. Local help could be right next door. God knows if I lived next to Warthog, Gary or about a billion other guys on the forum they'd be getting peppered with constant questions etc....

      Thanks for the reply. My brother has a 22ft Mako I have been fishing on for years. One reason I got it was that I know Makos so well form years of repair.

          If you're happy with the quality of the boat, then that's a great price. I paid 1500 for mine with a rebuilt '85 Suzuki 75 on it, but it was in sorry shape.

              Not bad. Sold our '73 17 which was extremely clean, except for a solid albeit wet transom about three years ago. Had an '87 110 rude that had just been rebuilt, sold it for $4700.
