Default 40 Baja or 38Scarab

The 40 Outlaw is a 2000 with 500's twin. Has a race lay up cabin simpson netting inside. Bravo drives. 120 hours very nice shape, also has a bini top.

The 38 Scarab is a 99 with 502Mpi motors with 150hours.Has a trailer. Cabin has all the goodies. Bravo drives very nice shape. Also has a Gps.

Both boats have Hyd steering, nice guage package.

The Outlaw is about 10k more. It also has a much larger cockpit. Both boats do the same speed.

Which one do you feel is the better deal. Resale in the future.

I think soon you will be changing your screen name from baja27 to baja40. That has a nice ring to it!

Go with the Outlaw. The race layup is a nice package and the 40 is a huge boat in every way.

Another consideration: How does wellcraft handle service since they dropped the line?

Daze has a real good point that I didn't think of though the service may be enough to sway my vote.
Good call.

Baja Daze I was thinking the same thing. I like the lines of the Baja but at the same time I like the amentites of the Scarab!!! The engine bay is nicer in the 40, ton of room.

Good point. Since the 40 is set up for trips, I bet it is huge with only twins in it.

baja27,

Had the oportunity to ride in a 40 Outlaw & 38 Scarab at the Miami Boat show 2 or 3 years ago. Same day only about 2 hours apart. Boat boats had 575sc as I remember. I am sure on the 40 Outlaw. Water was ROUGH in Gorverment Cut.

Bottom line is the 40 Outlaw road better (imo) and was also faster. Best of both worlds. I will give some credit for the ride to the driver of the Outlaw. He has many many hours of seat time in all conditions.

By the way I am the very happy owner of a 1999 36 Outlaw that we ordered new.

Mark

They both are great boats, don't think you can go wrong with either.

I have run in two different poker runs along side a buddy in his 38 Scarab, and I have to tell you that to be it is one of the best looking boats in the water.

The 40 Outlaw is HUGE!

It would really be a tough choice.

If you like the cuddy setup in the Outlaw I would go with the newer boat, and larger power.

Good luck and send pictures.
