  • 1982 mako 25

    can anyone tell me why the 82 model 25 weighs 1200 pounds less than the 2005 model 252 ? If anyone has any experience with the 82 model 25 I would like to know how it is. Thinking about it for my first boat !

    Thanks !

    Maybe no wood being used in the new ones??

      That should make it lighter than the 05. What he said was just the opposite.

        The '05 252 has an 8'6'' beam. The '82 Mako 25 has an 8' beam. In my opinon the '82 is a great boat and would be an awesome first boat. They are fast and efficient.

          I'm guessing here. Hamertime's '88 254 has some serious glass in it.

          11/16 hull thickness and the box's in the back are 1/2in thick. I have some core samples out of his boat. It's a brick [email protected]&t house.

            I may not be correct, but doesn't the '05 have a euro transom.. I believe that could add to the weight factor, mabye..

              Thanks for the input, The 05 model does have a euro transom, and between that and the extra 6" of beam, it probably accounts for the 1200 pounds, this is an awesome website, good people and good info. I will let you know if it all works out.

                  You guys are driving me crazy[] I got the fever so bad after reading your post about makovers and repairs, I am having visions of baitwells, leaning post, t tops, fish boxes, anchor lockers, and I dont even have a boat yet ! Hopefully the banker(wife), will snub some of that before it gets out of hand !
