Washington, North Carolina-based Baja Marine, parent company of the Baja, Donzi, Fountain and Pro-Line boat brands, has signed a contract to build 22 boats for a Commercial buyer. While the details of the agreement were not revealed, Baja Marine CEO, Johnny Walker, says the order is for 16 Pro-Line boats and six Fountains that will be used for on-water law enforcement.
Construction already has begun on the new commercial order at Baja Marine's factory in Washington, North Carolina.
"This new Commercial contract was the result of a joint effort between Baja Marine's Engineering Manager/Commercial Sales Co-ordinator David Hardison and Carol Price, our Vice President of Administration. They both have done an outstanding job in keeping our Commercial order book filled,' said Walker. "The commercial side of our business continues to be a great supplement to our recreational boat manufacturing operations, and it is growing quickly. We will build more than 50 commercial boats this year, which is almost double the number we delivered last year.
Baja Marine builds performance and fishing boats from 16 to 48 feet. All four of Baja's brands are designed, built and marketed at the company's 250,000-square foot facility, situated on more than 60 acres on the Pamlico River in Washington, North Carolina.
