Publish date:

Marquis-Larson Boat Group said at its recent dealer meeting that orders were up 37 percent from the previous year and 20 percent more dealers signed on than last year.

The meeting was held Oct. 5-7 at the company’s manufacturing facility in Pulaski, Wis.

“With our recent Larson Boat Group manufacturing relocation from Little Falls, Minn., to Pulaski, it was important to share and show off our new home,” said Marquis-Larson Boat Group president and CEO Rob Parmentier in a statement.

“Seeing our capabilities in Pulaski, meeting the men and women building our dealer partner boats, and seeing the pride these folks take in their work ignited a firestorm of new production and orders for each of our brands,” Parmentier said.

More than 125 dealer representatives and 25 key vendors attended the dealer open house. There was a welcome reception and tours of Lambeau Field, where the NFL’s Green Bay Packers play, in addition to a day of activities at the shipyard in Pulaski.
