1995 Mako 181 Flats


The Mako 181 "Flats" is an original old school "Classic Mako" from the Mako Marine days that pre-date Bass Pro and Tracker involvement. She's a true "Florida style" flats boat that gobbles up bay chop while also being capable of floating in 10" of water to chase redfish and other flats species. With 80" of beam, she provides an incredibly stable fishing platform and dry ride. If I were not looking to move down into a technical skiff better suited for fly fishing winter low tides, I would not be selling this boat. If she doesn't sell, I'll keep running tire kickers or low ballers please.
