Marquis and Carver Yachts added Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales, which has locations in Michigan and Ohio, as its latest dealer.

The builder said Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales is the fifth dealer it has added in less than three months.

Marquis and Carver said Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales has been selling to and servicing the Great Lakes region for more than 40 years. It was founded by the late Greg Krueger, and his partners and children, Amy Krueger Malow and Erik Krueger, continue to run the business.

"I have competed against and known Greg for many years. It's great to see his legacy, traditions, competitive spirit and passion for excellence continue on through his daughter Amy and son Erik," Marquis and Carver president and CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement. ”I am excited that Amy and Erik have added Marquis and Carver Yachts to their portfolio of impressive and long-standing brands, understanding the opportunity that, together, we have in eastern and northern Michigan and northern Ohio."

Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales has locations in St. Clair Shores and Charlevoix, Mich., and Catawba Island, Ohio.

"Marquis and Carver Yachts fits perfectly into our existing product-brand portfolio at Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales,” Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales president Malow said. "Carver has a rich tradition on these waters and the product I'm seeing, along with Rob Parmentier's dynamic leadership, is impressive. We're excited about returning the tradition back to this area.”
