  • Front Bench Seats AND Factory Bracket

    I am hoping some of the Mako experts on here will know the answer to this. I want to find a classic 24-26 Mako to restore. My two must have's are a factory bracket w/ enclosed transom and bow seating (not an open fisherman style). Which models did Mako make that have both?

    Finding a bracketed mako is rare but they are out there and go fast. Last one went in less than 12hrs. Keep an eye on craigslist

      There was one 1985 closed transom on the Miami's Craigslist. I looked ast the boat and it was in a decent shape. But, the bracket is gone. You can look at that boat ( still there for sale.

        Check out the mid-late 90's 232. Closed transom, bracket, and lots of bow seating or platform if you want it.

          A '76-'83 25 has an enclosed transom.

          After that, the models with a B designation have full transom and factory brackets. e.g.: 261B, 231B

          Then, you have the models ending in 2 that are center consoles with fwd seating and euro transoms after 1992. Most of the 23ft + models all have fwd seating areas molded into the deck cap.

          Let me know if you need any other info. There is a Q and A thread on that has many very knowledgeable folks, including a member of the family who originally owned and ran Mako in the good days, posting on it about the designs of various models.
