Default 1998 Baja 272

Hello all. New to the site. I am looking at buying a 1998 baja boss 272 with a 502 with roughly 390. Thoughts please??? I'm getting it for $23,000 with trailer.

Sounds like a decent price especially with Covid pricing.

You may try reaching out to "BIGREDBAJA" here on OSO, His father has a real nice clean one with newish repower 502. Freshwater only boat.

Did you get a survey? Baja built some decent boats. They also built a few with questionable construction. Even on a good one, you want to check for water intrusion and rot.

It is EFI. I reached out to the local marina and asked for a scan on hours. Thanks!

Ok welcome dont know your level of boat knowledge but being over 20 years old have the hull surveyed, ask for records, has the drive been serviced the bellows, manifolds, pumps and belts Salt or fresh water will make a huge difference over the 20 years. The boat is a great boat but it depends on how it was maintained.

Sounds like a fair price if it has been taken care of and maintained, is it a local boat?

I am having the hours scanned today. The boat is 7 hours away. I plan on making the drive this weekend. Leaving Friday night. He "said" the boat is solid boat. Still checking on everything. Thank you all!
