  • I'm a new Guy

    I've been watching this forum for about 5 years looking for information about the Mako 270 I own. It is a 92 270B and I bought it about 12 years ago. I have finally joined the forum in hope's of finding out the boats history. I was told when I bought it that it was used as a cover boat in 1992. At the time it didn't mean anything, but now I would really like to know the history. I don't see hardly any info or comments about the 270. I know that it was a one year only boat, but I've had a hard time getting any information. Look forward to sharing information and making new Mako Shark friends.

    Welcome to CM. Very intrigued about your boat as I have never heard of a 270B. Looked at Mako specs and see 27'8" LOA 8'6" beam full transom and 23 degree deadrise; sounds like a beast [8D].

    I am sure I am speaking for most when I say pics please. Most use photobucket and this thread gives directions...

                  Hi Chuck and thanks you for the welcome. Yes it is a beast, has more room for fishing than you need. I have had larger boats but none that was easy to fish and get around in. the interesting thing about the boat is the hull#. I was told it was a special edition and had been used on the cover of some boating mag. when it was new. At the time I really didnt care I just liked all the room it had. Twelve years later I have fallen in love with this boat and would really like to know its history. It was a FL. boat and the name on it was "Blue Eyes" and it also had "Hillsboro Marne Special Edition on the side. As far as I can tell the boat is 100% as it came from the factory. Iam hoping that Brett will remember this boat as it has a very low #. MRK0004SE292 any help would be great. Buy the way,from the pulpit to the motors is 35 ft. It still has what I think to be the original 200 Mercurys and they still push it 46mph {gps}. More pics. coming http://s1315.photobucket.com/user/re...y/Mako%20Shark
