Baja Marine Resumes Production

Baja Marine, Washington, North Carolina, has resumed new boat production and will also now be offering repowering, paint, upholstery and set-up services for performance boats.

“Baja is back in production after a few months' shutdown,” said Baja Marine CEO John Walker. “Our customers have been demanding bigger, faster boats with new custom graphics no one has seen before, and that's what we're giving them for the new model year. Baja's Elite Service department is also open for business, tuning and restoring customers' existing performance boats from bow to stern, regardless of their brand.”

Last year, Walker announced Baja Marine's goal to re-launch the brand in 2012.

Now company the company plans on reintroducing three of its offshore models for 2013 including the Baja 278 Performance, 30 Outlaw and 35 Outlaw, with new graphics packages and a full range of Mercury power options. Baja's ‘family-friendly' performance boat line will include its 23 and 26 Outlaw, and 247 and 277 Islander models.

Craig Barrie, Baja Marine Vice President of Sales and Marketing, announced that Baja has booked exhibit space on the High Performance Dock at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October, in slips HI 11, 12, 13 and 14 at the Bahia Mar venue. “We are going to unveil a unique new series for 2013 at the show,” he revealed. “Check our new website at for updates.” In addition to displaying new Baja performance boats for consumers at the boat show, Barrie reported that Baja Marine is actively looking to add to its current international network of dedicated Baja dealers.
