Pulaski, Wisc (February 18, 2016) – 2016 Yachts Miami Beach will go down as one of the best shows for Marquis and Carver Yachts in over 10 years. At the conclusion of the show, which ran February 11 – 15, 2016, more than a dozen units were sold with many more pending sales and retail activity still to happen as a result of the Yachts Miami Beach Boat Show.
The show started with a launch event for the new Carver C50 Command Bridge, the night of Wednesday, February 10th, which was attended by more than 150 people made up of dealers, media and potential owners. “The introduction, excitement and desire for the new Carver C50 has been electric,” said Rob Parmentier, Marquis Yachts, LLC President and CEO. Parmentier went on to add, “Like all Carvers past and present the standards of space utilization, craftsmanship, value, and quality are clearly represented in this boat, and all the boats on display in Miami.”
Greg Terraglio, President and Owner of Sovereign Marine Group in Stuart, FL supported Parmentier’s statement, “My team and I came to this show with lots of appointments and renewed customer interest in our brands which is something we have not seen in sometime.” He went on to add, “We feel the market is slowly coming back for bigger boats and at the same time Marquis and Carver has the right portfolio offering that is meeting those demands for customers that want the combination of style, performance, space and value.”
Parmentier concluded with, “As result of the winter show activity we are experiencing, including this show, the addition of five new dealers in three months, and a forward-looking positive spring season, plus a new model to be released at Lauderdale in November, we have increased our Carver production line rate.”
