Looking for a top quality, heavy duty and robust tiller steer open dory? Been to the boat show and now have “sticker shock” at the price of a kitted-out package? Well, have we found a rig for you, this “as new” condition Mako Craft 455 Commander Pro package was picked up new in March 2018 and due to unforeseen reasons is now offered for sale.

First Impressions

This rig offers the new boat a genuine alternative package at a second hand price of only $18,495 tow away enjoying the balance of manufacturers engine warranty and owing something that will be at home in the bay crabbing for “Sandies” or in Weipa chasing the 100cm plus Barra! Use the big 7” colour screen Lowrance Elite to find the fish with the upgraded Structure Scan transducer fitted – if you haven't seen these in action, check Lowrance’s YouTube channel – simply awesome!

As the photos depict this huge open package has loads of room and we love how the 2 x 24l fuel tanks have been located under the floor for balance and offers more storage room in the rear of the boat under the deck. The bow has the huge casting platform – flicking lures at the Jack, setting up the pots, throwing the cast net for the livies.... dooh... back to writing in my office!

The Motor

Power, you want power?! The owner set this rig up with the Command Thrust Mercury 50Hp EFI four stroke and fitted with electric start, power trim and tilt, Mercury VesselView, steering friction control, adjustable tiller, 3 blade Vengeance stainless steel propeller and includes the books and spare key for the next owner. These quality four strokes are serving it up to the competitors for their ultra-reliability and incredible fuel economy! All backed with the transfer of the balance of engine factory warranty til 03.2021 (Mercury Conditions Apply)

On the Water

No one likes carving holes in the gunnels for rod holders and this owner didn’t either and went to the expense of installing numerous rod holder fittings on the rails, I think 6 rod holders from memory are installed. A live bait tank will keep the “livie” angler happy and how much space is there under the bow casting platform? Just like some of the other awesome makes out there like the Top Ender, Outlaw and Territory boats this Mako from Stessl Family (built by Horizon Boats) is first class!
