Baja Marine, the parent company of the Baja, Donzi, Fountain and Pro-Line fishing and performance boat brands, has signed a contract to build 22 boats for a commercial client, according to a press release from the Washington, N.C., company. Although the details of the agreement remain confidential, Baja Marine chief executive officer Johnny Walker said the order is for 16 Pro-Line models and six Fountain center consoles, all of which will be used for on-water law enforcement.
Baja Marine’s latest commercial order is for 16 Pro-Line models and six Fountain center consoles, according to the builder.
“This new commercial contract was the result of a joint effort between Baja Marine’s engineering manager/commercial sales coordinator David Hardison and Carol Price, our vice president of administration,” Walker said in the release. “They both have done an outstanding job in keeping our commercial order book filled.
“The commercial side of our business continues to be a great supplement to our recreational boat manufacturing operations, and it is growing quickly,” he added. “We will build more than 50 commercial boats this year, which is almost double the number we delivered last year.”
According to the release, construction already has begun on the new commercial order at the Baja Marine’s factory.
