  • 20 vs 19

    Hello everyone!

    First post! I've always been a fan of the classic Mako styling. I'm trying to decide which of these boats to pursure.

    or

    I'm leaning towards the 19, it looks like the owner took good care of it. Do y'all think it warrants the asking price?

    Welcome to CM! I saw that 19 - it's a good looking boat with rebuilt motors. Nobody rigs with twins anymore but there is nothing like the sound of running twins. Those motors still have value and you could easily convert to a single.

    The 20 is the older style and I'm not a fan of the layout of that era. You would be much happier with an 84-94 20c IMO.

      The 19. I would sell the engines and replace them with a single.

      Offer him $7500.

        Although I like the size of the 19tl; the 20 is a true classic mako. I would go with the 20.

          Of those two boats, I'd be after the 19

            I had a 1972 Mako 19 and sold it to buy a 1973 Mako 20. The Mako 20 floats higher in the rear with both rear scuppers out of the water by about 2" with a Johnson 140 mounted on the rear. The scuppers are unobstructed on the Mako 20 and drain easily. The Mako 19 had a single deck drain that was partially obstructed by the motor mount and would easily get clogged up with debris and leaves. In the 19 while anchored up fishing, I would have to watch for waves coming from the rear which could come over the transom easily. I like the splashwell in the 20 and don't have to worry about so much about the waves.

            My Mako 20 rides smoother and feels more solid to me than the Mako 19. Don't think I'd ever go back to a 19.

              What you posted as a 20 sure looks like an early 70s 19 to me. 99% sure. The 20 had different bow configuration and overall layout.

              Of the 2 boats you listed, I'd opt for the hull with twins and as others have said, move to a single.

                I got to looking closer at the New Orleans 20 ad and even though it has a Mako 20 logo on the hull it looks like my Mako 19 with the raised casting deck in the front, no splashwell, the way the fishboxes blend into the transom and top cap, the small oval opening into the front anchor locker, and the single strake on both sides of the hull that starts further back from the bow.

                  The 19 is also a classic.

                  And as others have pointed out, the 20 looks like a 19.

                    Spoke to the gentleman that owns the 19 in Baton Rouge. It's much closer to me than New Orleans. Have an appointment to look it over Saturday morning.

                    He said all the right things on the phone, I know that might not be worth much, but it's all I have at the moment.

                      Just wanted to give an update. I purchased the 1989 19' this weekend.

                      Basically came with another motor in parts. I think I am going to leave the twins on for now.

                      Sailor is right, nothing quite like screaming twins.

                      Took her out to Marsh Island, south of Cypremort Point, yesterday.

                          That's awesome. My family usually goes to Destin in June for summer vacation. I will definitely look into it!

                            Congrats on the new boat.

                            It looks great.

                            Have fun with it.
