The 100%-composite MAKO Pro Skiff 17 CC is our most popular model because it packs in a massive amount of fishability into a nimble, right-sized package. The patented Advanced Inverted V (AIV) hull design provides a quick holeshot, smooth, dry ride and nimble handling and maneuverability. It's ideal for all types of inshore fishing, and it's nearly 3/4-ton capacity makes it one of the hardest working boats in its class.
The deck and foam-filled hull are mechanically and chemically bonded to become one unitized structure with superior flotation and quiet operation. And it comes standard with a hot-dipped galvanized trailer, a Mercury outboard and our superior MAKO Assurance 5+Life warranty.
