Boat Review Mako 21LTS

The New 21 LTS Mako is obviously built with all the past 47 years of knowledge gained from the offshore series and the inshore series rolled into one. The fit and finish is unmistakably Mako with the comfort and room of all its predecessors, and the handling and quick to plane RPS hull is something way ahead of its time. As a tournament fisherman, I have never had too much storageā€¦ the storage typically less than ideal in boats of this category. Though after loading the boat for my first tournament event, I actually had several areas in the boat with nothing in them!

The boat handles shallow water as well as rough choppy conditions with ease and a true sense of confidence. The RPS hull allows the boat to achieve plane in seconds with little to no bow rise. This can be done in extremely shallow water and allows the boat to run on plane in even less. It maneuvers like its on rails with very responsive handling in tight turns, as well as very comfortable flat ride in heavy bay chop and stiff winds.

After you have had enough of the boats running performance and its time slow down and go fishing, is when the boat shines the most. The large raised casting platforms both fore and aft are extremely roomy and the wide stance makes maneuvering around the boat easy unnoticeable. The boat is very responsive using a trolling around the mangroves or around your favorite set of cypress stumps. The boat can be rigged right from the factory with everything a tournament angler needs, from a Polling platform on the stern to a raised sight casting platform on the bow. It is easy to see this boat is designed with the experienced angler in mind.
