MARQUIS & CARVER YACHTS RETURNS TO THE SOUTH PACIFIC


For Immediate Release

Pulaski, Wisc (August 12, 2014) – Marquis and Carver Yachts has returned to New Zealand and Australia's New South Wales state with the addition of Sports Marine. Sports Marine is the sixth recently added dealer to the expanding Marquis and Carver Yachts' global dealer network in the past 4-months, and the first international dealer to do so.

Sports Marine has been in the marine industry for 36 years, with dealerships in Christchurch and Auckland, New Zealand as well as in Sydney, Australia. Since Sports Marine's founding in 1978, the team has established itself as the leader in their respective markets earning a reputation for honesty, a service-first attitude and dedication to their customers and boat owners.

"The addition of Marquis and Carver Yachts to Sports Marine's product offering allows us to expand on the success of our current brands and serve our respective boating markets with a greater range of bridge and coupe motor-yachts with features and benefits that are roomy, livable and affordable, said Scott Williamson, Managing Director of Sports Marine.

"We are delighted to be able to offer our customers throughout Australia and New Zealand another high-quality product which we expect to be well received by the market."

"Sports Marine's success in the past three decades is due to the range it's been able to offer customers along with the experience of its two senior sales executives who have been with the company since it began. This has ensured the dealership has been in a strong position during its thirty years in business," Mr. Williamson says.

"Having previously worked with Scott and the team at Sports Marine, I am confident they will quickly make a name for our brands in New Zealand and New South Wales, Australia returning Carver to the position we once had in that part of the world," said Rob Parmentier, President & CEO Marquis Yachts, LLC. Rob went on to say, "With one of the newest fleets of boats on the water today, and our new models soon to come, dealer partners like Sports Marine along with our other dealers from around the world, we will continue to make an impact in the boating market."
