Customer research indicated a preference for old-school graphics, but our test boat's bold blue and black stripes offered a fresh take. Baja also eschews the typical carbon or wood grain at the helm, instead offering a marble-style dash panel, color-matched to the Victor wheel, to offset a pair of Suzuki multifunction smart gauges. A smooth Suzuki control box handled the 300 hp outboard on the stern. In 2- to 3-foot seas offshore, I slammed that throttle forward and noted a quick plane en route to a top speed of 49.3 mph. Baja's notably deep, 23-degree deadrise V-hull sliced through those waves like a knife and held firm in hard-over turns, resulting in a smooth, family-friendly ride.
