BUCYRUS, - Baja Marine is pleased to announce that Connecticut boat dealership, Diamond Marine, has joined the Baja dealer network. Diamond Marine is located in East Haven, minutes away from the city of New Haven and less than one mile from the Long Island Sound.

At 44,000 square feet, Diamond Marine features a vast indoor showroom space and is located near in-water marina facilities. Family-owned since opening more than 25 years ago, Diamond Marine is a well-known and trusted name among Connecticut boaters. With its close proximity to the Connecticut River, the Long Island Sound and the region's many lakes, the dealership is ideally situated to serve a broad boating market. Diamond Marine also boasts a popular store web site, www.diamondmarine.net, which further helps to draw customers.

Thanks to more than two decades of experience, the sales and service staffs have built strong relationships with customers, offering both on- and off-site service, expert advice and certified maintenance. Diamond Marine also offers a wide selection of marine parts and accessories in its showroom, and its large service department is certified to repair both Mercury Marine and MerCruiser products.

"We're happy to welcome the 2008 Baja lineup to our store," said Karl Muller, co-owner of Diamond Marine along with his brother, Kurt. "We've had great success dealing in pre-owned Baja boats and anticipate a huge customer response to the all-new models. In fact, the phone has been ringing already."

"Baja Marine is very pleased to have Diamond Marine join our dealer network," said Dave Olson, president of Baja Marine. "Besides being impressed by their stellar track record of serving customers, we know the staff is very knowledgeable about the Baja brand and our products. That's a combination we look for in a strong dealer partner. We expect they'll do an excellent job spreading the full-throttle experience to boaters all over Connecticut."
