Marquis and Carver Yachts said the 2016 Yachts Miami Beach was one of the best shows for the company in more than 10 years.

At the conclusion of the five-day show along Collins Avenue that ended on Monday, more than a dozen units had been sold and “many more” pending sales and retail activity were expected to occur because of the show, the company said.

The highlight of the show for the manufacturer was a launch event for the new Carver C50 Command Bridge on Feb. 10, which was attended by more than 150 people — dealers, potential owners and the press.

"The introduction, excitement and desire for the new Carver C50 has been electric," Marquis Yachts president and CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement. "Like all Carvers past and present, the standards of space utilization, craftsmanship, value and quality are clearly represented in this boat and all the boats on display in Miami."

Greg Terraglio, the president and owner of Sovereign Marine Group in Stuart, Fla., which partnered with the manufacturer, confirmed that the show was a productive one.

"My team and I came to this show with lots of appointments and renewed customer interest in our brands, which is something we have not seen in some time," he said.

"We feel the market is slowly coming back for bigger boats, and at the same time Marquis and Carver has the right portfolio offering that is meeting those demands for customers that want the combination of style, performance, space and value."
