  • Mako Madagascar


    I live in Madagascar and I would like to buy this hull (fishing mainly). Unfortunatelly, nobody knows her history. Could you help me ?

    Is it well a Mako hull ?

    How old is she ?

    Is she full of foam (unsinkable)?

    (sorry, I am not able to insert the image)

    Many thanks,

    It LOOKS like an older Mako 21, but we would need to see inside pics.

    If the deck is the color of mustard, then it probably is a Mako.

    It should have the Mako logo nameplate, or something like "Mako 21" on the aft quarters. You can see if there are old rivet holes from where a nameplate used to be.

    What you really need is the capacity plate, usually attached to the aft of the console--a small 10cm square aluminum badge giving boat name, number of people, etc.

    Or, you can look for the HIN (Hull Identification Number). Usually engraved onto a small aluminum strip, with one attached to the transom, and then I believe they also sometimes put one up inside one of the front hatches. Stick your head in and look around. If you fine the HIN, that will tell you everything--manufacturer, year, model, serial number, etc.

    Read this:

    PS--For the foam, these boats do have, and they /usually/ will not sink, but that does not mean the hull will not roll over and float upside down.

    Bonne chance!

      Hi Georges,

      Thank you for your message.

      That is interesting. I try to see the hull in a few weeks. She is in an other city.

      Best regards,

          Just based on math - 7 meters is 22.9 ft.

          Possibly a 224 based on that length
