I found the aesthetic styling and beefy look to the 631s appealing. At 6.31 metres in length and having a full 2.5-metre beam, high sides, a shmick looking centre cab with hard-top and 150 horsepower four-stroke, they most certainly portray a boat destined for serious fishing and big offshore runs.
In the rough heading back to Urangan the 631 beast quartered the chop and 25-knot-plus NW like a soldier going to battle. The big flared bow does a good job at pushing water, while maintaining a comfortable ride.
Overall, the Gold Coast produced plate boat is designed primarily to suit in- and off-shore fishing, also being a decent family boat with suited options fitted. The Makocraft boast a sturdy build with a four millimetre bottom and sides and are good value for money.
