Lightbulb Help Please: Formula or Baja

I currently have a Baja 25 outlaw and love it. We are wanting to go bigger though. Looking for better ride in rough stuff and cruise, not neccisarily top speed. Would like it to run around 70mph at least though wot. I have found deals on both a 2004 292 Fastech(6.2's) and a 33 Outlaw(496ho's) both with low hours. The 292 is about $20,000 less though. Just curios on others opinions on the two?

Formula has an air induction hull and the Baja does not. Formula would be faster if size and power were equal due to the hull difference. That being said, the Baja will track/handle better in a turn with more speed...to a point. With fuel the way it is, the 6.2's on the smaller boat will burn a hell of a lot less then the 33 with 496's. Have fun, good luck, both are nice boats.

I disagree, I think the 33 Outlaw will be faster but who knows ?? Take a GPS and demo both that is what I would do. As for the two boats your not really comparing apples to apples. but Given the two I would go with the Baja.

I've got a 33 Outlaw and love it. I thought resale when ordering and so did a factory custom paint, making it, I believe, more appealing for resale.

292s are pigs with 6.2s. Buy the 33 Outlaw, faster and has alot more room.
