Our company was asked by one of our long standing clients to supply  a design and quote for 12 x Commercial grade fully inflatable boats. We contacted several manufacturers for quotations and design specifications. Mako replied immediately and offered valuable input to the type and design of boat required by our clients.  We dealt personally with Mark Louw from Mako Africa and throughout the lengthy process, we received prompt response and reply from him. We gave Mako, our clients user requirements. Mako then sent us a design based on the information acquired (this included environmental conditions) Based on the information and design specifications sent by Mako, we were awarded the project and received the purchase order. Mako manufactured, pre-tested and delivered all 12 boats directly to the client for inspection. Each boat was very professionally packed into individual boat bags and the boat, floor boards and boat parts were packed into wooden crates. We requested an approved training course from Mako on the use, maintenance and repair of the boats in Cape Town. Mako assisted with accommodation and transport for 9 persons who successfully attended a 5 day training course held by Mako. During the use of the boats, we experienced some small warranty issues and Mako attended to these issues in a very prompt and responsible way. Our clients are very happy with their boats and we are on standby to receive additional orders from them.
