“Dean, your attention to all the small but significant details during the survey, closing, and the follow-up after the sale are much appreciated Dean. We are happy to recommend your services to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a yacht like ours.”
“We were shopping for a yacht for 2 years when we met Dean at a boatshow. Dean found us a great deal and went above and beyond the usual call of a yacht broker, traveling numerous times to California and handled all the details to make sure everything went smoothly for us.”
“Dean found me a deal on the yacht that I really wanted that was so attractive, I canceled the deal I had on going another boat. After a few years when I decided to sell, Dean found a retail buyer in Europe, hired a translator, arranged for shipping, and flew to Greece to deliver it to the new owner to keep the deal together. Now that’s service!”
“ Dean this is boat deal #2 with you. In 20 years of buying and selling boats, I am certain no other broker would look after my interests the way you did. Your advice saved me tens of thousands of dollars.”

Worth Noting: Carver Yacht Group currently employs more than 1,000 people.
In 1954 in a Milwaukee garage, Charlie Carter and George Verhagen began building mahogany-planked, high-speed runabouts. What started as a hobby soon turned into a business as word quickly spread, and the two fledgling boat builders began selling boats to friends. By combining the first three letters of their last names, the Carver Boat Corporation was born.
In 1956, the two entrepreneurs moved their growing business to Pulaski, Wisconsin, to take advantage of the area’s dedicated work force and excellent transportation facilities. They built mahogany boats throughout the 1960s, adding cabin cruisers to an expanding lineup. In the 1970s, the switch was made to fiberglass hulls, with additional advances that included larger cabin designs and the introduction of the popular 32 Mariner.
By the 1980s, Carver had expanded sales beyond the Great Lakes region to truly become a recognized leader in the luxury motor yacht market. In fact, the motor yacht became synonymous with the Carver brand in the early 1990s. In 1991, Carver was acquired by Genmar Holdings, Inc. By the late 1990s, all Carver Yachts included no structural wood below the waterline, and fiberglass stringers. In 2000, the largest Carver Yacht was introduced-the 57 Voyager Pilothouse.
In 2003, the company acquired manufacturing facilities in Fano, Italy, to build its new line of Nuvari Yachts, partnering with the respected naval architecture firm Nuvolari-Lenard. The year also marked the debut of the Wisconsin-built Marquis Class.
