Marquis and Carver Yachts expanded into Quebec with the addition of dealer partner Groupe Thomas Marine.

Marquis and Carver will be represented at the dealership’s four locations in Laval, Varennes, Sorel and St. Charles sur Richelieu.

"We are honored to have the knowledge, reputation and boating expertise the Groupe Thomas Marine team brings to Marquis and Carver in this very valuable and important part of Canada," Marquis Yachts LLC president and CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement.

“The level of excitement that started six months ago with the changes to the product and the hype around the new Carver C43 Coupe, launched last month in Miami, were the catalyst for this relationship between Pulaski and Thomas Marine coming together,” he added.

"The addition of Marquis and Carver Yachts to our current product portfolio will further our ability to support the boating community of Quebec and the Maritimes," Groupe Thomas Marine president Claude Thomas said. "We are excited to add both of these brands and be a key partner in each brand's revival and return to the strong position they once held in this area. I am humbled that Rob and his team felt we could support this strategic objective.”
