Marquis and Carver Appoints New Quebec Dealer


Groupe Thomas Marine, headquartered in Varnnes, Quebec, is the latest dealer to join Marquis and Carver Yacht's growing network. Groupe Thomas Marine operates four locations (Laval, Varnnes, Sorel, and St. Charles sur Richelieu) from which it will support Marquis and Carver's owners, prospects, sales and service needs for Quebec and the Canadian Maritimes.

Groupe Thomas Marine started from humble beginnings 20 years ago in Varnnes. Since then it has experienced steady growth and built a reputation for customer service in the region.

"We are honoured to have the knowledge, reputation and boating expertise the Groupe Thomas Marine team brings to Marquis and Carver in this very valuable and important part of Canada,' said Rob Parmentier, President and CEO Marquis Yachts. "The level of excitement that started six-months ago with the changes to the product and the hype around the new Carver C43 Coupe launched last month in Miami were the catalyst for this relationship between Pulaski and Thomas Marine coming together.'

"The addition of Marquis and Carver Yachts to our current product portfolio will further our ability to support the boating community of Quebec and the Maritimes,' said Claude Thomas, President Groupe Thomas Marine. "We are excited to add both of these brands and be a key partner in each brand's revival and return to the strong position they once held in this area. I am humbled that Rob and his team felt we could support this strategic objective.'

In addition to its new yacht lines, the dealership also offers the Princecraft, Bayliner, Sea Ray, Crownline, Ranger, Stratos and Boston Whaler boat brands. Groupe Thomas Marine is also a dealer for Mercury Marine.

Marquis Yachts, LLC is an independent and privately owned company, located in Pulaski, Wisconsin, designing, engineering and manufacturing the brands of Marquis Yachts and Carver Yachts.
