Chicks dig the beak

Baja = mustang

Fountain = Vette

both production boats of similar quality and in a round about way owned or "guaranteed" by the same company

my next boat will probably be a 25 or 26 outlaw best bang for the buck

call me crazy, but i dont think there is a baja that runs better than a fountain in any water!
Everyones got their opinions....However, everyone I've ever talked to that has ACTUALLY OWNED a Fountain and a Cig would take the Cig ever time. Just like everyone that has ACTUALLY OWNED a Baja has nothing but good things to say.

I would take any Cig OR A BAJA over a Fountain EVERYDAY.

what is a stepped hull? how is it more beneficial and how does it act different on the water vs. a regular v hull?

The stepped hull allows air to get in under the hull making it loose. This makes it a faster hull. It also effects the handling characteristics. Loose is fast but can be sloppy in turns if you dont know what you are doing. The Baja is a solid V hull. But the new 35 has been tested in wind tunnels to attempt to gain the same speed benefit from ventilating the hull. Without getting it loose in turns and rough water.

Most opinions here are good. Comes down to alot of personal preferences in style and look. If you want a boat that is a little bigger and has more interior room. Go with the Baja. If you want a little more speed and willing to sacrifice a little size and room. Go with the Fountain. I would be proud to own either one.

Best bit of advice. Go and look at both in person. Sea Trial both and make up your own mind about which one impresses and suits you the best.
