  • help ID this boat

    I am looking at an old Mako to maybe buy. I love the old lines and it is just a cool little boat. Not much to clean it up and get her going again. Then I could really dress her up.

    Can anyone help me with the age of the boat given the hull number? I am assuming it is a 1991...

    Mako 171

    hull # mrka 1017 f191

    btw... who did Mako sell out to in the early 2000s?

    Somewhere in the 40 pages of Mako QA theres a HIN decoder. I think 191 is the model. Is it a 19' boat?

    Model Years 1967-1996.(The Schwebkes)

    Model years 1996-1998 became a public company known as Mako Marine International but the Schwebkes were no longer involved

    Mid year 1998 to present Tracker Marine bought the parent company and took back private.
