Vanderbilt Luxury Pontoons has restructured under a limited liability corporation and announced a management team with experience in the pontoon segment.

A subsidiary of Marathon Acquisitions, Vanderbilt will produce its 700 Series, 27-foot, twin-outboard pontoon in Fort Wayne, Ind., the company said in a statement. A single-engine 500 Series model is in development.

The management team comprises general manager Tavid Markarian, vice president of commercial sales and marketing David Hegel, vice president of finance Davis Deane, supply-chain manager Al Goeglein, senior design engineer Rachel Parteko and plant manager Chase Oldsen.

“We’ve assembled a well-respected team, and we’re currently working on new model development and dealer representation that accurately reflects our brand,” Markarian said. “While still being under the Marathon Acquisitions umbrella, the freedom that our own LLC and production facility brings us will allow us to launch Vanderbilt into the luxury pontoon market effectively.”
