Marquis and Carver Yachts added Canadian dealer Executive Yacht to its network.

Executive Yacht in Mississauga, Ontario, is a new dealership selling, servicing and supporting the Toronto market. Owner and CEO Derek Mader is new to dealer ownership, but he has more than 15 years of experience managing and operating a dealership, the yacht builder said.

"We are excited to have Derek and his team at Executive Yacht become the new Marquis and Carver dealer for the province of Ontario," Marquis Yachts president and CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement. "Derek's enthusiasm and passion for our brands, his customers he had previously sold boats to, the Ontario and Toronto area boating community is infectious.”

"We are excited to represent Marquis and Carver Yachts, continuing the long-standing tradition of selling and servicing one of the most livable, approachable yachts on the water," Mader said.

"With one of the newest fleets of boats on the water today, dealer partners like Executive Yacht and our current global dealer partners, we are poised to make an impact on the bridge boat market," Parmentier said.
