  • 28 Center Console

    Did Mako make a 28 Center Console with twins? If so what years?

  • #2
    Mako made the first 28 cc starting in the mid 80s. It had a 9'10'' beam with 300 gallons of gas and rated for 600 hp. That lasted until the late 80s.

    The second one was a euro transom with an 8'6" beam that came out in 96 or so.

    A third one came out after Bass Pro bought them with a little wider beam I think.

      The third is the current 284 which has a 910 beam and isnt based on any previous mako. The first that was referenced was a solid boat,, and the last was when the 261B had to be relabeled as a 282 due to USCG regulations. Personally id put the 284 just ahead of the 261B/282 but that is my own preference both of those were great boats. The older 28s youd have to do more digging to find info on

        In that time frame they made a 284 which was the center console version of the 285 which was a dual console. Of the 284, there were two versions a shallower draft and a deeper draft. Apparently the shallower draft was a very hard riding boat due to the lack of V but fantastic on the drift. The deeper draft version is more desirable.

        Here is a link to the owners manual for the 284/285

        and a picture of the 284 CC with the forward cabin.

        Also if you are in the market, there is a local boat here in Destin that was bracketed, repowered with twin 200 Suzuki's and in very good condition. Check out the Mako Owners group on facebook for more information.
