I bought this boat from the 3rd owner. The boat has a rich history of fishing the Mako Marine family Tournaments and has made several crossings to the Bahamas to fish Walkers Cay. I have a large folder with repair and upgrade information from the last 2 owners also. I have a PDF version as well as hard copy of the most current survey. The boat has had 200 hours of runtime since last survey. It runs out very well, and my wife and I have had many a fun outing on it. This past Monday we had it out in lake Erie 20 miles. During the day we moved several time to finally get our limits of lake perch and then ran in. Never a moments trouble. Top speed on this boat is right at 37mph measured by GPS. This is at 4400 rpms. Swinging a Acme 1774 prop. I always cruise at 26mph and 3200 rpms or less to conserve fuel and stress on the engine. This was how the previous owners instructed it be ran and I believe its spot on.You can let go of the wheel and it does not wander left or right. It has effortless hydraulic steering in both the upper and lower stations. Currently the upper station is not mounted. To mount the station it takes 2 men and about 2 hours. It is hinged and can be lowered for transport. There are 6 wires, and 3 hoses, and 2 cables to hook up for it to be ready. There is a temporary repaired crack in the aluminum as indicated by the picture. We had no use to run the upper station here on the Great Lakes, and it tows better without it mounted. We can put the station in the back of your pickup or up in the boat for transport to its new home. Features are 1 Working Garmin 192 color GPS chartplotter..... 2 Working Sitex Color bottom machine.... 3 Working Ship to shore scanning radio..... 4 Working Bennet trim tabs. The indicators on the dash do not however work..... 5 Working horn and lights..... 6 USB charging station for phones..... 7 Working For and Aft automatic bilge pumps...... 8 Working blower..... 9 Working courtesy lights..... 10 Working for and aft spreader lights..... 12 2 charged fire extinguishers.... 13 Left and Right outriggers and equipment included.... 14 Removable fighting chair..... 15 aluminum and canvas sunshade for upper station.... 16 Many rod holders for both fishing and transport..... 17 anchor and rode.... 18 Bumpers and lines.... 19 Heavy Duty Shorlander galvanized trailer tows well at 70 MPH if required..... 20 40 gallon bait/live well in the transom. Manually filled...... About 10 years ago the boat had a new engine installed, and both gas tanks replaced. I inspected both tanks and they are corrosion free, and the rubber hoses look to be in good shape. I installed new fuel fills this winter when I replaced all the gunnel and transom trim wood. The wood was replaced with mahogany and bedded with epoxy and screwed down with stainless fasteners. I also bedded the tower with 3M 4200 when re-installing it after the wood project. The upholstery is all original. It is not in the best of shape, but its hard to imagine a boat this old having the original factory cushions and bolsters. Gusto has been well loved over the years. You will notice in many of the pictures I have a trolling motor installed on the transom. We troll at 1.7-2.0 here on the Great Lakes and the main engine will only go down to about 2.4. Not the case for salt water fishing at all. I removed the kicker motor and bracket this past week. It is NOT included in the sale. Included is a very heavy duty Shorlander Galvanized tandem trailer with working brakes on all 4 wheels. This is a roller trailer that pulls great and loads and unloads very easily. New winch and strap this past season. Lights work. Ohio trailers are sold with a bill of sale. Boat has a clear title in my name. You can call me with questions about the boat and I will do my best to answer them. Dave 269-598-3314 I have had several Classic Mako boats over the years and have enjoyed each and every one. I would be glad also to email the PDF version of the survey. Keep in mind its several years old, but the boat has had limited use in the last few years. The bow rail has been removed and the screw holes filled with epoxy and color matched. I will help deliver this boat, meet you half way, or bring it to your dock. You tell me what you want and I will get it there as cheep as possible. Pickup is in Columbus Ohio. 43230
