commercial and military HDPE boats (High Density Polyethylene craft)

Mako Africa has built a range of commercial and military HDPE boats over the last decade

The MAKO commercial and military HDPE boats (High Density Polyethylene) are fabricated primarily for use in the offshore and marine construction environments,  oil and gas industry, and for military use. Mako’s range of HDPE boats have been developed as a replacement to conventional RIB’s and have virtually indestructible HDPE hulls that are specifically designed to mantain in tough commercial environments.

Mako’s HDPE boats can be used for various applications, but our boats are primarily used as work boats, military use, offshore work boats, personnel transfer boats and scuba replacement boats (SRP). Our crafts are supplied with petrol outboards or inboard diesel motors and our inboard versions can be supplied with water jet drive or Z-drive (stern drive) systems.

  • Resistant to chemicals.
  • No corrosion.

  • Much higher lifecycle.
  • Easy to clean. Water and dirt repellent.
  • High UV Resistance.
  • Excellent impact resistance because it is ductile.
  • Can be easily repaired by relatively unskilled staff.
  • Do not require painting or any care.

Mako Craft hulls require minimal maintenance and can be easily repaired.
