Expanding Line and Markets
Marquis Yachts has unveiled its newest model, the Nuvolari-Lenard-designed Marquis 630 Sport Yacht. While the boat itself is an attractive addition to the Wisconsin-based builder’s offerings and received plenty of attention at the Yacht & Brokerage show in Miami Beach, it was not the only news maker for the company. Irwin Jacobs and Jean-Paul Dejoria, who invested heavily into Marquis and Carver and created J&D Acquisitions announced a new joint venture with a large multifaceted government-run Chinese group called Poly Technologies, Inc.
Poly Technologies Chairman Jiang Lianxiang, who was present in Miami Beach, said that while full development of China’s recreational boating industry would take some time, growth had been significant already. Even if sales to China only represent a few units for Marquis, any incremental sales will be good for the Pulaski-based company where craftsmen build Marquis and Carver yachts. The new company, named Poly Marquis Yacht Co. Ltd. will adapt the boats built in Pulaski to the habits and expectations of Chinese boaters.
