The 2021 model Canyon Console from Makocraft is noted in reviews for many of its performance features but one aspect especially differentiates this alloy plate boat from many others in its class – it can be fitted with twin outboards. Why is this different and why would it be appealing? Many manufacturers of boats in the under 5.5 metre typically fit their range with only one outboard. Today’s outboards are extremely reliable and not as many owners of this size of will venture too far offshore so the one is seen as quite acceptable. There is also the cost factor which escalates quite significantly when you add that second motor – but hopefully your cheap Jade boat loan will neutralise that aspect somewhat.
So what is the advantage of the twin outboards on the Makocraft Canyon Console range? Well if you are heading offshore or to more remote and less accessible waters, having the additional engine in case of a breakdown could be very important. Reliability for those venturing into remote areas to discover special fishing spots does appear a major selling point. But then there is the speed and power a twin outboard boat delivers.
Makocraft may not be an extremely familiar name to boat buyers. But if you say the same Stessl, then the penny drops. Makocraft was founded in 2005 and is owned by Tim Stessl of the family that has been involved in building great Aussie boats for decades. Makocraft is a designer and manufacturer of quality aluminium and fibreglass boats, based on the Gold Coast and presents an impressive range of boats across several categories.
We’ve singled out the 2021 model of the Canyon Console to whet your appetite for the brand and for investing in a twin outboard centre console. The Canyon Console is available in three sizes – 531, 561 and 591. The 5.3 metre length quoted is the hull length while overall length is 5.4 metres. Note: some manufacturers quote boat lengths as overall while some quote hull length. Worth checking that spec for a wide range of reasons including get the boat details absolutely correct on your insurance policy.
These models can be rigged with just the one outboard so you do have the option. Enter the Jade Boat Loans calculator! Perfect application for our calculator. The pricing we sourced for a single outboard model package start around the $45,000 and for a quality twin engine model, you may be looking at around the $70,000. So you can do the sums yourself.

Back to the boat and the manufacturers product information note that this is a genuine plate construction with 4mm high tensile keel sheets and 4mm side sheets. The 4mm bulkheads and the frames are both fully welded to the hull and the gunnels and side decks are also fully welded. Standard features include the large anchor well, rails on the bow and at the rear, fully carpeted floor, underfloor flotation which meets the Australian Standards, centre console with folding windscreen, 4 rod holders, boarding ladder and large underfloor floor tank for starters.
