Mako International

Company Profile

Mako International is situated in Cape Town, South Africa. Mako Inflatables have evolved out of the design and manufacture of inflatable racing boats ... a field where it lead the other manufacturers in design and innovation ... and where it collected many highly acclaimed awards both on and off the water. The company has grown consistently over this period and has enjoyed an ongoing and enviable reputation for design, innovation, product quality and performance. Mako's achievements on the water would not have been possible without an on-going extensive programme of design, manufacturing and process assessment throughout their manufacturing plant. The factory has expanded into the RIB market using their extensive knowledge gained in 10 years of racing. Using their specialist in house Technical and Design team, each craft is carefully researched and designed to produce exceptional on-the-water performance with hull design, tube geometry, shape, carrying capacity and operational characteristics all giving their range of craft outstanding handling, buoyancy, seaworthiness, stability and safety. Mako is unique in as far as it is one of the few manufacturers maintaining complete control over the manufacturing process ... including in-house manufacture of sponsors (inflatable tubes), fibreglass hulls, consoles and major accessories. In this way ... coupled with their very competitive manufacturing costs due to the weak South African Rand and low production overheads ... they keep costs to a minimum while still ensuring that their products meet with the very highest quality standards set by the 'Big Names' in the world market. Mako products are built using the best available materials imported from the world leaders in tube materials. They manufacture their products in both high quality Hypalon or PVC ... depending on their client's needs and requirements. All of their materials are immensely strong, wear resistant, waterproof and completely immune to the hazards of sunlight, ozone fuel, oil, acids and contaminants. They also use only the highest quality resins, fibreglass and marine ply in the construction of their products. For your complete assurance they offer a 5-year transferable fabric warranty with a 5-year seam warranty on all their leisure boat products. Please note: Mako International is currently in the process of seeking, ISO 9002, D.O.T. & SOLAS classification for all of their products ... concentrating on their RIB range first.
