Baja Marine signs deal with Freedom Boat Club

Baja Marine, manufacturer of the Baja, Pro-Line, Donzi and Fountain performance powerboat brands, said it entered into a long-term alliance with the Freedom Boat Club to provide Pro-Line and Baja boats to the club’s nationwide network of operations.

The Freedom Boat Club is an asset-sharing model association that currently has 82 locations across the country, serving more than 8,000 members with access to a fleet of boats.

“This is a great boating alternative that we are very pleased to support,” Baja Marine CEO Johnny Walker said in a statement. “We look forward to having Freedom Boat Club members use our products and enjoy boating in them all over the country.

“In today’s environment it takes creative, out-of-the-box thinking to get 8,000 boaters on the water. This is a program that we can get behind,” Walker continued. “The people at Freedom Boat Club have been great to work with, and this alliance will add to the growing production backlog for Pro-Line and Baja for years to come.”

“With brands like Pro-Line and Baja, we will continue to give our members the quality product they deserve and have come to expect,” Freedom Boat Club president and CEO John Giglio said.
