This boat is intended for anglers who need more boat, more room, greater beam, and increased carrying capacity (7 persons). She only draws 1' which means she can go virtually everywhere - shallow lakes, bayous, swamps, canals, bays, flats and other bodies of skinny water -- but do it with comfort.
Most important, she is designed to be a stable platform that is fast and fuel efficient.
Because she is relatively flat aft, which is not unusual for a skiff, she should be both fast and fuel efficient. The 21 LTS also has what Mako calls its "Rapid Planing System" transom which the company says allows the boat to plane with very little bow rise.
Her chines and running strakes are designed to create lift and knock down the spray, two elements that make the boat dry in all but sloppy conditions. She also has a flared bow which knocks down small waves and also helps broaden the deck forward.
The 21 has raised bow and stern casting decks which come to about an inch from the top of the gunwales. This design serves several purposes: improving visibility, increasing storage space, and providing more cubic area for foam flotation. There is a 136-quart storage locker forward on the centerline with a locking stainless steel compression latch. The console has a toe kick all around it with courtesy lighting.
The cockpit is self-bailing, which means that water in the cockpit drains overboard and not into the bilge. This is a "must-have" feature for any fishing or sportboat other than the smallest ones. Removable screens make it easy to clean drains clogged by debris, fishing line, bait, etc.
The transom height is 27". This is 2" (5 cm) higher than many boats in class and is an important feature for a skiff.
The 21 LTS's fiberglass hull is laid up by hand in a conventional manner. A one-piece, gel coated molded fiberglass stringer system is chemically bonded to the hull bottom providing for a smooth finish inside which is easy to keep clean.
The transom is 2", is all-composite and has a high density core. This eliminates the use of plywood which can soak up water under certain conditions. In fact there is no plywood used anywhere in the boat.
The console is molded separately from the deck. Some builders make the console part of the deck molding which severely limits its design. Mako has chosen to make it a separate part molded in a multi-piece mold that is labor-intensive to execute. Once the unit has been finished and polished, it is chemically bonded and mechanically fastened to the deck's high density composite core. Hatch covers are close-molded laminates with finished undersides.
In virtually all cases, Mako used state-of-the-art or "best-practices" procedures in all its construction details.
The bow has a trolling motor. There is a removable casting net container integrated in the deck. Two dry storage areas port and starboard are each 90 quarts capacity. The starboard space is used as a rod locker that will hold seven rods.
The stern casting platform is large and contains two large dry storage lockers and a 30 gallon livewell with Pro-Air aeration system. The dry storage lockers are all guttered and gasketed. They also lock and have compression latches.
Above the livewell on the center line a seat can be placed with a backrest with aluminum supports which fit into the deck. In this way the boat can actually seat six people, two here, two at the helm and two in front of the console on the cooler.
The trailer is made of aluminum I-Beam. It has tandem axles with dual-axle brakes, leaf-spring suspension, and 14" galvanized V5 wheels.
