Carver and Marquis tout recent sales


Carver and Marquis Yachts say the brands had record sales during the last 90-day period with 46 retail units sold.

"Our recent sales success is the result of our strategy of adding quality dealer partners in key big-boat markets, as well as strong investment in product enhancements," Marquis and Carver Yachts CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement. "Our strong, aggressive sales and marketing tactics have proven to be successful, based on the amount of inquiries and retail activity we have seen in the last 90 days.”

"We feel our recent sales success and trend will continue into the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show," he added.

The full model lineup of Marquis and Carver yachts will be on display at the show, including a sneak peek at Carver's new coupe, which officially will be introduced to the market in February at the Miami International Boat Show.
