  • A Little Help From My Friends

    Hello everyone! I'm a new MAKO owner and new to this forum. We purchased a 1993 MAKO dual console last week. It measures just shy of 20'. I am having a hard time determining the specific model of the boat. The hull ID is MRK0022DJ293. I've included a few pictures as well. Any help identifying the model would be greatly appreciated.

    If you read through the Mako History thread there are posts about deciphering the ID. Mako had a 215 and 195 that were dual consoles around that time, however according to history post the 195 was a '94 model. Maybe the 93 at end is manufacture date and it was made in 93 as a 94 model. It is also possible the site isn't correct, there have been discrepancies pointed out in the past. Either way, just shy of 20', I would say you have a 195.

      Thanks for your response Chuck!

      Based on my (limited) understanding of deciphering a hull ID, the boat was manufactured in October 1992. The serial # would be 0022D, J2 would denote the boat was manufactured in October of 1992, and the boat is a 1993 model. Based on the Mako model specs for 1993 (https://www.makoboats.com/past-model...tBoatYear=1993), the only dual console model was the 215 Dual. My Mako is not 21', 10" long.

      Therein lies my confusion...

      Now regardless of the model, we absolutely love our Mako! It appears to have been well taken care of. Now I just need to see if I can get the hull to shine again.

        One clue could be the gas tank size. What size is yours? Do you know if it is original?

          I believe it is original. I have yet to run it completely empty and refill it. Is there another way I can determine the tank size?

            There should be a pie plate to access the tank and the manufacturer label could still be there (might be a stretch).

          I checked tonight. No label found. It’s one helluva big tank though.

            I took a few measurement today. I estimate the tank to be around 100 gallons. Does that help narrow it down?

              Just a shot in the dark but look where the Mako is on the side of your boat and see if there's a "ghost" imagine on the hull. Most of the placards have the model # like ... Mako 261

                Great idea. I'll check that out. The capacity plate is basically useless as well. Any other locations that might have clues?

                You wouldn't think this would be so difficult.

                  I've had a breakthrough. The Mako listed in this sales listing was manufactured immediately before my boat. I contact the seller who confirmed it was a 195.

                    Volume (cubic feet) = L x W x H then 1 cubic foot = 7.48 gallons.
