Mako introduced this entry to its walk-around line in 2007. Mako brings a more upscale approach to offshore fishing, but like other brands in the Tracker Marine group, it holds the line on price. For near-shore angling and bay cruising, one 300 hp Suzuki is fine, helping hold down both the purchase price and operating costs. On this boat, the hard top is a generous standard feature. We were impressed by the brawny look of the boat and gratified by the comfort in the cuddy cabin.
