Baja Marine introduces the brand new 315 Performance for 2008. A mid-sized model that simultaneously incorporates the luxury of a larger cruiser with the performance of a go-fast sport boat, Baja fans will get the best of both worlds with the 315. Continuing Baja’s initiative to sharpen its focus on its core performance lineup, the 315 Performance joins the recently introduced 277 Islander and 26 Outlaw.
With sleek lines, superior handling and trademark Baja technology as hallmarks, the 315 assumes its rightful place in the Performance lineup. Inspired by the amenities and aesthetics of the 405 Performance, the 315 features a walk-through transom, add-on swim platform, split throttle controls, optional generator, radar arch, and a generous cabin height. Function, however, is not sacrificed in the name of refined form - the 315’s wider beam paired with its 24-degree deadrise hull provides superior handling.
"We pushed the bounds of both style and performance," said J.R. Jenney, Baja’s director of sales. "We wanted the 315 Performance to continue in the 405’s direction in terms of comfort and style while maintaining that signature Baja handling and speed."
The 315’s three-person sleeping capacity is ideal for overnighting, but the expanded cockpit means up to eight passengers can stay out all day. Numerous cupholders, L-shaped rear bench seating and cockpit cooler make the 315 the ultimate entertaining boat. Space in the cabin has been increased by adding overhead deck braces that eliminate bulkheads, and the roomier head makes lengthy trips even more comfortable. Driver-friendly amenities also abound, from a new heavy-duty windshield that increases visibility and durability to larger water and waste holding tanks that extend time on the water.

"The 315 Performance is a great choice for customers who like to bring all their family and friends onboard," said Jenney. "Whether lounging in the spacious cockpit or pushing the throttle, the 315 delivers in more ways than one."
