There's hope on the horizon for laid-off employees of several Wisconsin yacht builders.

The Pulaski-based builder of Carver and Marquis yachts said it expects to step up production this winter. Cruisers Yachts officials said that company has recalled about 100 people; and Burger Boat Co. said it has recalled several people, according to an article in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper.

Carver and Marquis were auctioned off this month by Genmar Holdings, and purchased by J&D Acquisitions, a company created by Genmar founder Irwin Jacobs and business partner John Paul DeJoria.

"I would say that we will be up and running in about three weeks," Jacobs told the newspaper. "We will probably start contacting (laid-off) employees next week, if not this week."
