Australian manufacturing has suffered in the face of increasing globalisation from the availability of efficiencies of scale from overseas manufacturers operating in larger markets.

A productive manufacturing sector is a critical component of a thriving economy. The viability and future success of Australian manufacturing, and the millions of jobs this sector supports, rely on national productivity and competitiveness.

Each and every Makocraft boat has been designed and manufactured in Australia, this is something we are proud of and passionately support. When you buy a Makocraft product, you are supporting the local economy, jobs and the viability of manufacturing in Australia.

When you buy Australian made products, it increases the benefits for our communities and strengthens our national interest.

376 Topper Tracker

Ride and handling – it’s more than ‘just’ an opinion. The key to a better riding, handling and tracking hull requires more than just a basic hull shape. If you want better, you’ll need something a little more tangible than an opinion. The Second generation “G2” Edge Bottom as designed by Tim Stessl is clearly visible on the bottom of every hull, it’s a tri hull arrangement and under way it traps a cushion of foamy water beneath the hull that acts like a shock absorber. The “G2” Edge system also increases the surface area of the bottom of the vessel, therefore safety is increased, and as an added benefit, the boat floats in less water. In other words, Maokocraft Topper Tracker means stress free boating for you

490 Commander Pro S/C

The Commander Pro is a top shelf, multipurpose vessel capable of almost any fishing pursuit. I’ve sold them to all corners of Australia for shallow water flats fishing in QLD, to bumping over logs in the NT, fishing the frigid Alpine lakes in Tassie for trout and deep dropping offshore in NSW

631 Island Cab HT

In the rough heading back to Urangan the 631 beast quartered the chop and 25-knot-plus NW like a soldier going to battle. The big flared bow does a good job at pushing water, while maintaining a comfortable ride.

Overall, the Gold Coast produced plate boat is designed primarily to suit in- and off-shore fishing, also being a decent family boat with suited options fitted. The Makocraft boast a sturdy build with a four millimetre bottom and sides and are good value for money.
