'China is opening up as an important boating market, and the Fountain brand is well-known and popular there,' said Baja Marine CEO Johnny Walker. 'Who better for us to partner with in China than a trusted boat dealer that already represents another of our brands, Pro-Line Boats, and is familiar with us and our products? We are proud to welcome Hong Kong Marine to the Fountain family.'

In addition to new boat sales, the dealership also has a brokerage division and a thriving marine service business based on excellent customer relations.
