  • New Member and hopeful new owner

    First off, hello to all. My name is Matt and I'm from Jacksonville, FL. New to the forum here and I hope to be able to learn and share with y'all. I currently have a 2007 Make Bay 2201 which I know is not a classic, but it's still a pretty good boat. Having said that, it is up for sale ever since I saw a 1988 Mako 231 that was completely redone and up for sale. I instantly fell in love with the boat layout and clean lines. I've always known the older Makos are solid boats built for mother ocean. Well since I saw that boat and listed mine for sale, the classic has sold but I still could not get it off my mind. So I searched the internet up and down the east coast and have refined my search to the 221 or 231 Makos.

    Current situation, the bay boat is still for sale and I have found another classic I want. Any information, reviews, pros or cons about this boat would be greatly appreciated.

    1991 Mako 221. Electronics have been completely redone, gel coat has been redone, t-top, brand new 2017 yamaha 250 4-stroke on a platform/bracket, transom has been redone and closed in, fuel tank has been replaced. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from y'all.

    That is a nice set up. Same hull as my 224 with some interior design differences. All the major issues have been taken care of for you. I am not sure of the price point but sounds nice. Remember it still is 26 year old boat and owners will never recoup what they invested on updates.

    I fished Mayport a lot and grew up on Fleming Island. I am up there with the boat a few times a year if you need a ride. I fish more out of Daytona if you really want to fish fro a day.
