  • Mako 293 or 333

    Hello. I am new to the forum. TIA for any and all advise. I am looking at buying a used Mako w/cabin and have basically narrowed it down to either the 293 WA or the 333 attack. They both look seaworthy but I just finished reading a bit about the 333 where some said that the boat is a wet dog. Anyone have any experience with these boats? I am looking at models in the "95 to 2000 year range.

    IMO, Both are good boats. I've only seen them at boat shows and a few at the docks. I have heard the "get wet" stories about the 333 attack and I've seen a couple running in the water. The 333, with twin 250hp (max 600hp I think), is a bit sluggish. It would be interesting to see triples on it for a little more get-up-and-go. Any boat with a deep-vee is going to be a wet dog, especially with a cross wind. It's just a trade off for ride. In order to combat that, you could try some aftermarket sprayrails.

      Thanks Artie. I'll keep that in mind. I hope we'll be doing some sea trials soon. I'm leaning towards the 333 just for the larger size. I can handle getting a bit wet and moving slower. I'm hoping that while we're still in the water that the larger craft has a little more stability. We'll see.

        Have you looked at the new 314? It might be a boat to consider.
