Marquis and Carver Yachts have appointed Centerpointe Yacht Services as their newest dealer partner.
CenterPointe has three Lake Michigan locations in Milwaukee, Kenosha and Sturgeon Bay, Wisc., and a fourth location opening this spring in Holland, Mich. CenterPointe will serve Marquis and Carver owners all around Lake Michigan including Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.
"The addition of Marquis and Carver allows us to expand our portfolio and reach a market segment undeserved in the luxury boating market," said Craig Duchow, principal and general manager of CenterPointe Yacht Service. "A distinct advantage of Marquis and Carver yachts is that they are high-quality, Wisconsin-built yachts which we intend to leverage as a sales tool with our Lake Michigan customers. Since the recession, these brands have been underserved and [under]represented in Wisconsin and other parts of Lake Michigan. We are proud to be tasked and challenged to return Marquis and especially Carver Yachts back to the powerhouses they once were on the Great Lakes."
"We are excited and looking forward to establishing this new partnership, returning our brands to a position of desire in and around Lake Michigan with Craig and his team in this rich, loyal and vibrant boating community," said Rob Parmentier, Marquis and Carver Yachts president and CEO.
