I have had great luck with Baja, and while many want to criticize the fit and finish, you will find that they deliver a very nice product for the money.Originally Posted by Praetorian
My 36 is our third Baja and I have MANY friends with the brand that are as happy as we are. My boat has 336 hours on it and looks BRAND NEW. There are no stress cracks and it is not falling apart as many on here would want you to think they do.
I really like Formula's and other brands, and I will be the first to admit that I wish Baja would copy them in a few design areas, however Formula looks the same to me today except for paint that it did 10 years ago. They don't seem to be bringing anything new to the market.
Baja is spending more in R & D then most brands in the business combined. From wind tunnel testing, to carbon fiber construction, to the all new series of Outlaws including the 30 & 35 which are running fast with stock power and no steps. Then the new 405 which has no bulk heads in the cuddy for a complete open and unique design. The build slots for the new 35 & the 405 are SOLD OUT this year. The very popular 25 Outlaw is being replaced by the new 26 Outlaw next month and the list goes on. They are a company on the move, and if you don't like them, you at least have to admit that they helped to bring a LOT of people to this sport!
If they did not have a good product and bring a great value to the market they would not be the number one builder.
I have had the pleasure to ride on a 40 and it rides great and carves a turn like nothing you have been on. The 33 is nice, our 36 is great and the 40 is AWESOME.
We ran beside "WillPower" up at 1000 Islands last year and they look wonderful in the water.
If you want a good looking boat with lots of room and a very smooth ride it is had to beat. If speed is important, then you will probably not be happy.
Good luck with your shopping.
