Quality Craftsmanship Makes Marquis Ultra Premium

One of the distinctive marks of a premium quality yacht can be seen in the character of its interior wood and the level of craftsmanship employed in installation and finish.  Fine quality woodworking and best quality yachts have had an indelible relationship since people first took to the sea.  Wood gives a yacht much of its character.  The quality and finish of a yacht’s woodwork is likely the first thing a person notices when first stepping aboard.

You will not find finer woodworking than on a yacht built by Marquis.  And, Marquis is unique because we accept commissions for custom built yachts with interiors designed and finished to the owners specifications.

All of the cabinetry, doors and bulkheads on a Marquis yacht are crafted by highly skilled Marquis Yacht woodworkers.  Marquis does not subcontract or outsource this work.  Because we are an integrated ship yard, every yacht can be constructed using wood species the owners personally select.

We start with highest quality milled lumber so EVERY wooden component is custom made specifically for that particular yacht. Our craftsmen carefully inspect each board for color, grain pattern and best use within the vessel.  A Marquis can be constructed using virtually any species of wood. People who have commissioned a custom crafted Marquis have utilized traditional hardwoods like walnut, cherry and oak and more exotic wood like African Zebrano.  We have also built very unique interiors using a combination of different woods in various areas of the yacht.  Owners may also choose from a variety of hand rubbed, satin or high gloss finishes. Floor plans and space allocation can also be modified to suit an owner’s preference and need.

With Marquis the owner has input into creating the perfect yacht that truly represents their personal sense of style. It is a unique attribute of Marquis’ integrated ship yard and has high value when commissioning that yacht you always dreamed of.
