Default What would U say about this one......

I might have the opportunity to swing a deal on a bigger sled......

Here's what she is......It's a 1989 Baja 252 but she is 27 foot.......being a little uneducated in the Baja line-up I would appreciatte a little info on these guys......

What I do know about it is that it has a 1999 Gen V 454 that was put in a year ago......also it has a new fuel tank done by performance marine here in daytona.......

The boat itself is almost all red with some graphics donw the side.......some light fading but nothing major.....just lots of red in and out.....it's in great shape in my eyes.......and he said he wil take 18K........So tell me what ya think.....Thanks.....

Hey Shor!
Cool...get a survey and if it checks out, go for it.
The price is right for that year and that model(although check to see if it's not a "250" or "265" -- these were the models available, the 252 came later I think). If it's got one year fresh power and properly maintained it sounds like a good deal.

Shor.
I had a 1990 Baja 250ES with 454 mag. Great boat. Loved it. Definitely would like it better than the Bayliner. (It was 26' 9" OAL)

It ran about 61-62 with the 454 mag. The 89 and 90 are the same except the 90 had nicer cabin couches with backrests underneath. $18k doesn't sound too bad if it's in good condition.

Never had a problem with the boat at all. Friend of mine has a Force 265. Another great boat, porpoises a little, but he's got the small tabs on it. But a great boat.

If you're not going to get into a beak boat, I suppose it would be okay...LOL! Why would you want to pay fora 25' boat and get a 27'er? Should be the other way around, right?
