“The models are a reintroduction of the previous Baja brands and we are bringing back the most popular models and will be building from there. This is a start of new a process and we look forward to developing as time goes on,” said Walker.


In addition to a series of appointments including thru-transom exhaust, new color schemes in the interiors, and Livorsi hardware at the helm, both models are offered with a range of Mercury power options including the 6.2L (available in twin configurations), the 8.2L MAG, 8.2L MAG HO, the HP525, and the new 565 Sterndrive.

“We were coming out originally with smaller models because that’s where we felt the real market was,” says Walker. “Baja boaters want to grow in their Bajas. We want to be there for them to do that.”


Walker continued to explain that one of the most important features that the company is touting for the 2013 model year are the series of graphic options that are available. To check out the graphics packages be sure to visit www.bajamarine.com
