Hurst Marina

Marquis and Carver Yachts dealer network continues to grow with the addition of Hurst Marina in Manotick, Canada, near the capital city of Ottawa.

Located in Manotick on the Rideau River, Hurst Marina offers the perfect combination of sales and service along with the excellent marina accommodations Carver owners in the area are looking for. Hurst Marina will serve Marquis and Carver Yachts owners and prospects in Eastern Ontario province.

“The addition of Marquis and Carver Yachts to the Hurst Marina product offering allows us to meet the needs and demands of boaters in my area with a line of bridge and coupe motor-yachts with features and benefits that are roomy, livable and affordable”, said Peter Hurst President of Hurst Marina.

Hurst Managing Partner, Chris Wert added, “We are honoured to be the dealer entrusted with bringing the Carver and Marquis brands back to a position of prominence in Eastern Ontario and offer our boating community these very approachable and big-water, cruising boats.”

“I am excited Peter believes in us, our product, the direction of the company and brand to have selected Carver and Marquis to fill a gap and opportunity in his market and feels as strongly as I do we have what they want,” said Marquis and Carver Yachts, President and CEO Rob Parmentier. 

Rob went on to say, “The addition of Hurst Marina along with the other recent new dealer partners, clearly illustrates the re-emergence of Marquis and Carver Yacht’s strength and product offering is what the 34 to 75-foot boat buyer is looking for, and we are delivering on it.”
