1997 Mako 17' flats boat -- ORIGINAL OWNER

RhysleoRhysleo Posts: 13 Deckhand
1997 Mako 171LT flats boat, original Johnson 90hp Ocean Runner. I have professional service records dating back to 2002 (yes, 2002) and all original papers from Mako Marine.

Selling because I just purchased a new 25' Dusky.

Original owner. The boat has spent the majority of its life covered in a garage.

2019 Rock and Roll Trailer - single torsion axle, aluminum frame, all stainless steel hardware, all LED lights. Only dunked in saltwater 4 times since I had it custom built in August 2019. Not a speck of rust.
Ownership of this trailer comes with 24/7 roadside assistance anywhere in the USA (see:

Brand new custom fit cover (Dec 2019).

In 2016, the boat was completely stripped and re-rigged / re-wired. All new wiring, switches, shift cables, hydraulic steering lines, pumps, lights, etc. Everything on the boat works except for the under gunwale LED strip lights.

Garmin 441s
Standard Horizon GX1700 VHF with built-in GPS and 4ft Digital antenna.
Dual battery setup (one starting, one house) with Blue Sea Systems Automatic Charging Relay (ACR).

This boat is turn-key and ready to go. One of the last true Makos built before Tracker took over in 1998. We've used the same mechanic (Superior Outboard Services in Miami) since the early 2000's. Engine runs perfect and starts up instantly with no issues (see video). Ethanol-free fuel and Stabil fuel stabilizer used exclusively every fill up.

Located in South Miami
