Marquis Yachts LLC renewed and extended its exclusive design and engineering contract with Nuvolari-Lenard Naval Design in Venice, Italy.

"John Paul DeJoria and I are extremely pleased and excited that we were able to purchase Marquis and Carver Yacht companies and have Nuvolari-Lenard continue as the design and engineering firm for the company," said Irwin Jacobs, chairman of J&D Acquisitions, which recently purchased the former Genmar assets.
