Baja Marine Inc. is reporting steady commercial business through its AMH Government Services division.

The manufacturer of Donzi, Fountain and Pro-Line said it has been delivering boats to marine police departments.

“Our Pro-Line and Donzi center consoles are in demand with marine agencies that need boats combining durability, performance and usable deck space. Our boats are the real workhorses of their fleets,” Baja Marine president and CEO Johnny Walker said in a statement. “AMH’s commercial business is doing very well this year as a nice supplement to our consumer boat-building operations.”

The company said AMH Government Services has delivered two Pro-Line 2600 CCs and three Donzi 290 CCs to the Lake of the Ozarks State Highway Patrol since the beginning of 2015.

“This brings them up to 15 of our boats, so far,” Walker said.

Hennepin County, Minn., which includes Minneapolis and the Lake Minnetonka area, took delivery of two Pro-Line 2600 CCs in May, he said.

Commercial orders that are being built at the Baja Marine factory in Washington, N.C., include three Pro-Line 2300 CCs for the Tennessee Valley Lake Authority Police Department and a Pro-Line 2400 Bay Boat for the Osceola County, Fla., Sheriff’s Department.

Baja said the Pro-Line 2300 CC is popular with marine police departments.

“In addition to our government orders, we also are proud of our ongoing relationship building Pro-Lines for the Freedom Boat Club,” Walker said.
