Yup, but you can't import the 700SCIs. Customs will not be happy. I'm more into the howl of the V-10s, but that's me.

Where in Sweden do you boat?

Good luck with it.

Vedbæk, north of Copenhagen, so most often Øresund.

Yeah, it blows. No 1350s no custom stuff from YPM, Sterling ect. unless you have a boat that is old enough not to be under the CE laws. If you have an older boat, I think pre 2000 or so, you can ship it to the US and have the motors installed and then get it back that way, Same if you buy an older boat for import. It makes no sense what so ever.

do a google maps search for this address....
N7480 County Road UU Fond du Lac, WI 54935

Looks like Fred was telling the truth...
The Baja and the Fountain are setting side by side..
If you look close the smaller boat looks like it doesn't have drives on it right now.. or at least when the pic was taken..

When I was a Baja dealer I remember them making a all white 35 with the X exhaust and 662's. This looks to be the boat!!!

And Why do they say in the video that it is a 35 outlaw?

I dont think anyone are trying to fool me I just dont get what´s happenging here.
As I said, I have a 29 OL and I can clearly see the difference.

The boat in the picture, and in the film is a 35 and in the film they also call it a 35 wich they use to do in the picture as well.
Here is the latest on the Merc blog from Fred Kiekhaefer:

Don't worry, Gustav. I applaud tenacity. I also applaud accuracy and you got me thinking.

The boat you love was not Racing's Baja 29 validation boat. It was a customer's Baja 35 Outlaw. (Your eyes are better than mine.) Racing validated the X-haust system in our single engine 662SCi Baja 29. The first twin 662SCi X-haust certification was done in the 35 pictured above - which you correctly identified as a 35. (I know we don't own a 35 and our 36 is also a single engine has only had big power. That is why I believed you were talking about our 29. Sorry about the confusion.)

Truly, you do not want our 29 Baja. The boat you so desire was sold by Baja to European customer. Perhaps he is following this blog and will contact us or you. If that happens, I will let you know. (Re OSO: I have not been mocking you. Not my style.)
