The MAKO 18 LTS is a favorite among ardent inshore anglers who want a fast, shallow-drafting boat that's equally at home in the flats or the bay. 100% composite construction and our exclusive Rapid Planing System mean it's a rugged but nimble fishing machine that jumps onto plane and gives a smooth, dry ride.
Like every MAKO, the 18 LTS is backed by MAKO Assurance 5+Life—a best-in-class factory warranty that guarantees the quality of your boat for life. Complete with a custom-matched aluminum trailer and a Mercury outboard, you'll be ready to raid the coast right from the dealer.
