Can one boat really do it all? Maybe… meet Makaira.
Since 1992 Blue Wave Boats has ruled the Bay… now the blue is in their sites. Makaira is an offshore hybrid. Built for offshore fishing with a shallow draft for those days when you want to stay nearshore. So, where do you want to go today?
Based on the wildly successful 2800 Pure Hybrid platform, Makaira provides the boat the marketplace has been begging for; offshore ability with nearshore capability.
NEW for 2021... Makaira is equipped with the standard features you need and has new options you want. Noteworthy standards for 2021 include: Garmin electronics, deluxe captains seats on a tackle station, compass, 3-sided tempered glass windshield, freshwater washdown, swim platform / ladder and a t-top with a finished edge. New optional equipment includes a marine head.
Makaira has a spacious cockpit that seriously rivals that of traditional centers yet manages to keep a legit aft platform largely thanks to the no-splashwell build utilized on all Blue Wave Boats that keep the aft decks huge on the entire line-up.
Forward features wrap around seating that quickly and easily transforms into a casting platform or u-shaped seating. And yes, the forward pitch-well of the 2800 Pure Hybrid is literally front and center on this model too. This smart design has an optional quick stow and easy access table and base unseen in larger boats.
Even more surprising features include lockable rod storage built into the gunwales, both port and starboard, that can accommodate up to ten 8’ rods with reels. Additionally, these compartments do double duty as dry storage.
Bilge access has never been more accessible on a 28-foot boat. The entire aft jumpseat lifts for total access to the bilge compartment. All pumps are conveniently labeled for the ultimate user-friendly boat.
