Baja Marine, the parent company of Pro-Line, Baja, Donzi and Fountain boats, named Stellar Traders LLC as its manufacturer’s representative for the Great Lakes region.

Stellar Traders, which has regional offices in Algoma, Wis, will be the manufacturer’s representative for Baja in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Ohio.

Baja Marine CEO Johnny Walker said the appointment will expand the company’s reach into a crucial market for its fishing, family and performance boats.

“Boaters throughout the Great Lakes region will appreciate our quality boat brands, which provide safe and affordable fun for families, fishermen and performance enthusiasts on inland lakes and rivers large and small,” Walker said in a statement.

“Our recent decision to reintroduce the ‘retro’ Donzi Classic line was aimed at boaters in this area, in particular,” Walker said. “We are delighted to have Stellar Traders, with its broad local reach and expertise, to help us in better serving this key region.”
