Great Boat. I was in a 21 Kenner VXT with a 200 Optimax with a jack plate. We used this boat to shot the videos and photos from. The Mako LTS with a 90 Optimax got up on plane just as quick as the 21 Kenner VXT. The two boats ran side by side up and to about 25 mph. The Mako LTS topped out @ 45mph with two guys, no gear, 3-5 gallons of fuel and a 4 blade prop with all the plugs in it.

yup, I prefer a leaning post over one of those flip flop cooler seats. With tabs and a jackplate this would be a sweet rig.

I agree with the leaning post but not the trim tabs. The boat planes out plenty fast and the ride would not improve w\ tabs. Oh yeah and a jackplate would be a nice add.

I sell the Mako line up of boats here in san antonio and this is definatly going to become a popular model. That 90optimax is a match made in heaven with that LTS. But I do have the performance tests for the other motors as well.

90 Merc 2 stroke (carb) 39.9mph@5500rpm 19pitch stainless trophy 4 blade
50 Merc 2 stroke (carb) 32mph@5250rpm 13pitch stainless trophy 4 blade
this was with one person and a full tank of fuel
also this was tested at 960' above sea level (on average you loose about 3% of your hp for every 1000' of elevation.
lol... if ya'll guys buy one it better be from me!!!! lol

Is it just me or has BPS basically dumping the Kenner brand in favor of Mako. Last time I was at the BPS near Baton Rouge. Every bay boat they had was Mako and they were all Kenner designs, not a Kenner to be found. Seems strange, since Mako has always been associated with offshore and Kenner has always been known as THE bay boat.

Tracker marine own's both Kenner and Mako lines. Mako wanted a bay boat line and sense both lines are owned by the same company and the Kenner hull has been such a great riding boat. Mako was designed off of that hull. The boat is almost exactly the same except for the console and one more lifting strate (sp) and a pocket tunnel. The Mako line has been selling about 5 to 1 over the kenner NATION wide. Both boat are great riding boats and made in the same plant.

That boat drafts more than 6". Maybe more like 9-10". I don't think it'll get up in a foot of water set up like it is either.

Sometimes showroom floors are setup to what they have in stock. For example, at the Pearland BPS we have four makos to one Kenner, that's because we're more limited in the stock of kenners than makos, since we get new inventory on a weekley basis
