Marquis Yachts adds dealer in Middle East

Marquis Yachts LLC appointed Aquamarine Boats & Yachts as its new representative for Marquis yachts in the United Arab Emirates.

Marquis vice president of global sales Matthew VanGrunsven made the announcement welcoming Aquamarine this week.

"We are excited to have the seasoned staff of professionals at Aquamarine Boats & Yachts represent us in the UAE," VanGrunsven said in a statement.

Aquamarine, which provides full-service sales and support for boats and yachts, is based in Dubai.

Aquamarine now offers yachts up to 72 feet with the addition of the Marquis line. The company previously handled boats and yachts ranging from 19 feet to 55 feet.

"Adding the American-made Marquis brand to our existing products enables us to offer high-quality, affordable yachts and expand the range of our products to 72 feet in length," Aquamarine founder Darius Nouri said in a statement.

Aquamarine’s first Marquis, a 630 Sport Yacht, will be delivered in the fall to the UAE.
