Baja 36 Outlaw (Not in Production)

2 x 600-hp MerCruiser SC (Bravo I)

Brief Summary

The name says it all. This Outlaw is designed to smoke anything else out there—and let you be comfortable doing it.

Key Features

With her knife-sharp entry leading to a 24-degree transom deadrise, this Outlaw is one of the deepest V’s in the business. Buyers of this breed don’t tend to back off when confronted with rough water and the Outlaw’s construction reflects her mission. She’s Baltek cored, throughout, hullsides, bottom and decks for stiffness and her hull-to-deck marriage is adhesive bonded, through-bolted then glassed over. That tough package encloses state-of-the-art race-ready goodies such as standard McLeod II electric bolster seats, Dual Ram trim tabs and a stainless steel outdrive tiebar.

Captain's Report

The heart of any wave slice is its power package of course and the Outlaw’s choices—up to a thundering 1,600 PSH horsepower—allow you to choose exactly how fast you want to go.
While her standard power is a pair of 310-hp MerCruiser 7.4-liter MPI Bravo One stern drives, you can move right up through the Merc spectrum, from a 502 Magnum all the way to twin 800-hp surface-piercing drive Merc PR 900 SSM’s. Big puppies like that need all the air they can get and both Corsa and Captain’s Call through hull exhaust bypass systems are available options. Also optional are custom Kiekahaefer controls with incorporated trim switches and large K-Plane tabs with console indicators. Custom Faria gauges, power steering and a gray leather-covered steering wheel are standard. The stern sundeck is also the engine compartment cover and is raised by a single massive hydro/electric ram.
Belowdecks, the Outlaw can sleep four in a pinch on two bench seats in the salon. Two can be very comfortable on the forward V-berth separated from the salon by a privacy curtain. A 40-oz. carpet and indirect mood lighting are also standard. There’s even an enclosed head with a Porta Potti and the galley includes a sink and dual-voltage refrigerator. Hey, why not party after wiping out the competition?
