There is not a fleet of boats, just the one that has been meticulously maintained since 1991. The Mighty Mako is a custom built 25 foot center console designed with fishing in mind. It has more square foot fishing space than many boats twice it’s size. This space allows for maximum comfort while it’s stability and low freeboard allows for easier management of large game fish.
With a beam of 9 feet and a draft of 10 inches, and 360 degree of fishability, the Mighty Mako has all the benefits of a backwater flats boat without sacrificing comfort, spaciousness, and safety.
The Mighty Mako is not the fastest, biggest or most luxurious boat on the islands surrounding waters. It doesn’t have an air-conditioned saloon with a microwave or flat screen TV. There is no stereo, X-box or Nintendo on board. This fishing boat was designed with ONE thing in mind… FISHABILITY!
Calm and Comfortable Inshore Water… Beautiful Scenery… Lite Tackle… Large Fish
