Mako

Mako boats have been around for decades, though they’ve changed quite a bit since being taken over by Tracker in the late 90’s. The emphasis on growing model size reversed in the past few years, with many of Mako’s newest and most exciting offerings in the 18’ and under range. Though a full model line up to 28’ is still offered, their new small boats, particularly the award-winning Pro Skiffs series, are extremely innovative and unique.

Boat Description

The 18 LTS is a whole other breed of bay boat.

It takes the features, ride and versatility of larger craft and perfectly melds them with the maneuverability and shallow draft of an inshore boat. The patented Rapid Planing System not only pushes the 18 LTS up on plane in record time, but it can do it in only 24" (60.96 cm) of water! All with less horsepower! And for fishing versatility, no other boat even compares. Generous bow and stern platforms are perfect for sight casting. If you prefer to stalk your fish through extreme shallows, you can get the optional poling platform, push pole and holders.

For even more big-boat performance options, optional trim tabs, jack plates and hydraulic steering are ready to take your bay fishing trip to the max. However you choose to outfit your 18 LTS, this light tackle skiff is built to impress with its smooth ride, long list of features and all-around versatility.
