Rebirth for Donzi, Pro-Line, Baja, and Fountain

Donzi Marine, Pro-Line Boats, Baja Marine, and Fountain Powerboats will be manufactured in the former Fountain Powerboats factory in Washington, North Carolina, where  officials have offered economic incentives to consolidate manufacturing into one 250,000-square-foot facility. Owners Liberty Associates and American Marine Holdings say each brand will have its own workforce and support staffs. Donzi and Pro-Line have moved from Sarasota and Crystal River, Florida, respectively. Baja will relaunch, and Fountain is resuming production after emerging from bankruptcy. Said AMH chairman Bill Gates, “With the rebirth of Baja now underway, I think it’s safe to say that Washington, North Carolina, is the new capital of the boatbuilding world.”
