Makocraft Launches X-Series Fibreglass Range

While 2020 was a year like no other, 2021 is shaping up to be no different for Makocraft owner, Tim Stessl.

With the entire marine industry experiencing a boom in sales, this has consequently resulted in plenty of challenges in terms of keeping up with demand, as well as a backlog in sourcing aluminum. With these considerations, 2021 felt like the right time for Makocraft to launch a range of four-metre fibreglass boats, something Mr Stessl has said he has been on the cards for some time.

“While it would seem unusual for an aluminum manufacturer to essentially hop the fence, the X-Series has come about as a result of culmination of many years of consideration and design” said Mr Stessl. “I’ve always loved the sleek look of fibreglass boats and now seemed a good a time as any to launch this new range, especially given the demand for watercraft is at an all time high”.

In 2009, Mr Stessl took a hiatus from aluminum boats and moved into sales roles focusing on American fibreglass leisure boats, so he is certainly no stranger to this make of boat.
