Marquis and Carver Yachts appointed CenterPointe Yacht Services, which has three Lake Michigan locations, as its newest dealer.

CenterPointe has three Lake Michigan locations in Milwaukee, Kenosha and Sturgeon Bay, Wis., and a fourth location opening this spring in Holland, Mich.

The dealership will serve Marquis and Carver owners all around Lake Michigan, including the states of Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.

"The addition of Marquis and Carver allows us to expand our portfolio and reach a market segment underserved in the luxury boating market," CenterPointe Yacht Services principal and general manager Craig Duchow said in a statement. "A distinct advantage of Marquis and Carver yachts is that they are high-quality, Wisconsin-built yachts, which we intend to leverage as a sales tool with our Lake Michigan customers.”

“Since the recession, these brands have been underserved and represented in Wisconsin and other parts of Lake Michigan,” Duchow added. “We are proud to be tasked and challenged to return Marquis, and especially Carver Yachts, back to the powerhouses they once were on the Great Lakes.”
