  • Mako 25 Center console - Might Buy

    So, now that I'm done with the 17 I've been looking for an offshore boat to go halves on with my brother. This boat will replace the Mako 21. Ive been looking for somthing in the 25-30 foot range.

    My brother calls me today and says theres a 1985 Mako 25 center console for sale with twin 2000 Yamahas HPDIs and a trailer included. Asking $5000. Boat is somewhere in Miami so we would need to make sure trailer is road worthy for trip to Tampa.

    If motors run does this sound like a good deal? Our plan is to sell motors to recoup cost.

    Any idea what these motors are worth?

    If they run thatd be an amazing deal, theres 254s on the market right now with no power that are for sale for that much or more. The motors alone running are worth the price tag. Id run not walk to that kind of deal

      I agree with JohnB, but at that price, I'd be extra suspicious of the transom, fuel tank, stringers and deck.

        Doesn't matter if the boat needs new everything, for that price you couldnt lose (assuming the motors are good). All of these old boats are going to need some work. Just depends on how big of a project you want.

        If you need trailer parts I have a 10k dual axle aluminum trailer that I'm about to part out in Clearwater. I'm taking the brakes off of it and then selling/scrapping the rest. Lots of good parts

          Going to look at it next week. It's not listed for sale so my brother and I have first dibs. If motors run we a pulling the trigger. I'm sure for this price everything is rotten. Keven, I'll let you know if we need parts.

            I found one like that at a trailer place for $4199. Did not have a trailer though, so maybe they threw one in to sweeten the deal. I believe it had running engines and was in Miami.

            Good luck. I have the same boat and love it.

              Got the boat. Will post pics soon. It's in pretty bad shape. Transom is beyond shot but deck seems solid. Will check stringers when I pull tank. Both motors run but one seems to be running rich and may be down a cylinder either way they are for sale if anyone is interested. More good news is I stumbled across a guy selling a bracket on Craigslist. It's a used stainless marine. He just had it powder coated but found out he can't use it on his boat. Its exactly what I need for this 25 and I picked it up for $1300. Save money where I can
