  • Fuel Tank Size Mako 17

    Hello Mako owners!

    I have a 1989 Mako 17 that needs a new fuel tank. I am wondering if anyone knows the dimensions for this tank?

    I suggest you pull the tank and take the measurements yourself that way you can be sure you have it right.

      Some of the tank fabricators should have records of the tanks they have made. Try patriot marine fabricating in Barnegat, NJ.

        I just put a new tank in a 1976 17'. I got it from Speedy Tank. I told the lady the dimensions and she asked if it was for a mako. Turn out she owns a 1988 mako. Great service and great price. She was very helpful! You will want to measure yours. Mine was 24x6x40 and fit perfectly.

          the tank in a 1989 is 35 gallons where as your 76 had a 23 gallon tank.

            There was extra room in the coffin in my 1988, I increased the size and have almost 40 gallons.

            Pull the tank and measure the space, just be sure to measure at the bottom to account for sloping walls and foam.
