Baja are 'production' quality American powerboats. Certainly not built to the same standards as the custom or semi-custom builders such as Cigarette, Outerlimits or Sutphen.

With the 21 Hammer, you will probably find that the motor is lag bolted to the stringers and the hull to deck join will be wanting. It's basically built as a 'sports boat'.

On the whole, the big ones are probably built to or near the quality of the Larry Smith (non-race) Scarabs. The smaller ones are more like the Wellcraft Scarabs.

I know I'm equivocating so I'm not sure if that's helpful.

If you are looking for an American boat around 21 feet that will withstand UK waters, you might be better off looking at Progression, Superboat Inc. or dare I say, Velocity.

I really love the superboats.........21 & 24 especially. I always had the impression they were quality, but could never understand why when you go to the US classifieds they are relativly cheap.

Theres been a hammer white/yellow/aqua OR white/yellow/purple with a 4.3L. Its been for sale forever.

I thought Baja was bought by Sea Ray to replace their Pachanga range?

Should be good quality if part of Sea Ray i would have thought.

I agree that they dont sell to quickly in the UK though!

Nice looking boats though.
