  • Does anyone recognize this type of boat?

    I'm trying to get some information about this classic 10 ft, 2-seater motor boat. I've been told it's a Mako Shark and that a limited number were made but I'm not so sure that is what it is. I'd like to bring it back to what it once was but can't find any information on it.

    Anyone???

    There have been several boat companies that have used the Mako name. The Mako's here are primarily center console, but all are fishing boats. Maybe someone has seen this type of boat before - it is a new one for me. I am aware of a company back in the '70's our in California that built jet boats and used the Mako name.

    This little boat must be a V drive? What is the power?? Looks like a fun little boat on a small lake!

        when we bought it back in the 70's (second-hand) we were told it was a 20 or 25 hp Evinrude/Johnson powerhead. The outdrive is bolted to the powerhead directly with no middle section. There's no v drive.

        My brother and I had tons of fun with it as kids Upstate NY. It's been in storage for 35 - 40 years and I recently dug it out. NO ONE seems to know a thing about it but the name "Mako Shark" has been tossed around.

            Very unusual boat for sure. I have been around what I thought every kind of boat built, but I have never seen one quite like that. Is there a hull id molded into the rear starboard area? Those numbers were mandatory on every boat built after 1972. Can you post up pics of the engine compartment?? cool little scooter...
