Baja Acquires Fountain, Donzi, and Pro-Line
Production of three well-known brands will swing back into action in 2013.
Baja Marine, Inc., has acquired the assets of Donzi Marine, Fountain Powerboats, and Pro-Line Boats from American Marine Holdings, Inc., according to a press release from the company. All four brands will operate as independent entities and will be manufactured at the Baja Marine facility in Washington, N.C.
According to the release, the acquisition was prompted by ongoing demand from customers and dealers for new boats from Donzi, Fountain, and Pro-Line since American Marine Holdings suspended production of these brands in 2011. Production of Donzi, Fountain, and Pro-Line models will resume in 2013.
