Baja Marine, parent company of the Baja, Donzi, Fountain and Pro-Line boat brands, signed Miami Total Marine as a new partner.

Located in Doral, Fla., the dealership offers the full line of Pro-Line fishing boats from 20 to 35 feet, as well as the Baja, Donzi and Fountain boat brands.

In addition to new-boat sales, Miami Total Marine is a Mercury Marine Platinum Dealer, authorized to sell and service Mercury engine products, including Mercury outboards, diesels, MerCruiser sterndrives and Mercury high-performance engines.

The dealership also offers Suzuki outboards.

Miami Total Marine services boats as well as engines with a staff of two full-time mechanics and a fully stocked parts warehouse.

“We’re strategically located near the airport and not far from marinas,” Miami Total Marine president Mariela Nava said in a statement. “On the weekends we’ll go to Crandon Park in Key Biscayne or Haulover Marina in North Miami. Our goal is to become well known here locally and provide everything our customers need.”

Nava and her husband, Ramon Araujo, Miami Total Marine’s vice president, moved to the United States from Venezuela four years ago. Both have more than 25 years of boating experience. Their family-owned business in Venezuela is boatbuilding, manufacturing boats from 25 to 38 feet.

Their background also includes owning a dry-stack marina in Venezuela and serving as Mercury and MerCruiser dealers there since 1989. Ramon Araujo is Mercury-certified and has extensive knowledge of high-performance engines and boat racing.

“We want to build the business and be there to help our customers when they need us,” Nava said. “Our goal is to help everyone enjoy the water.”

“We love to cruise as a family, and now we are becoming more familiar with the fishing market and tournaments,” Nava said. “We first learned about Pro-Line last year in Orlando at the 75th anniversary for Mercury Marine. It is a great brand and we’re very excited about growing it and selling boats in South Florida.”
