Fitness & Relaxation
The ATV Story
Aquatic Training Vessels, a division of Marquis Corp., has been engineered to create a swim spa with effective flow dynamics and take traditional swim spa technology to the next level. Bowed sidelines and a unique range of pumps and jets deliver a water flow you can customize for optimized aquatic workouts. And while it may be a swim spa above the surface, below the surface it is a complete fitness vessel.
An ATV is not only for the professional athlete, but the emerging athlete and anyone interested in rehabilitation and aquatic fitness. Whatever your fitness level, the ATV’s power and versatility is there to maximize your training performance, give you a competitive edge and benefit your overall health and wellness.
Each ATV swim spa is custom made at the Marquis® factory in Independence, Oregon. Marquis, our parent company, was founded in 1980 and is employee-owned and operated. Each unit is systematically tested to ensure it is of the highest quality and finish before we ship it.
Aquatic Training Vessels™ have earned a loyal following among competitive athletes and recreational swimmers alike. Whether you want the ultimate challenge or the ultimate escape, ATV™ swim spas are the perfect complement to your backyard resort or vacation property.
Much more than a Swim Spa … This is called an “ATV” or Aquatic Training Vessel™ because it is a serious swimming and exercise “machine”. Larger than a hot tub, yet with a current to swim against beyond your swimming endurance.
Full range-of-motion swim strokes, stationary leg kicks, banded resistance and rowing, low-impact step training, stretching and heated-water aerobics are all possible with ATV. Change body positions to target different muscle groups for horizontal swimming, upright aerobic fitness and seated strength conditioning.
Every ATV model offers hydrotherapy massage seats for pre-workout warm-ups and post-workout recovery. There are two massage seats in the Kona, Sport and Splash Series, four seats in the V150W swim and workout vessel, and eight seats in the V150 swim spa and party vessel.
Experience the heated-water hydrotherapy and jetted hydromassage benefits of a hot tub, with the increased hydrostatic-pressure benefits of a swim spa. With lower blood pressure and reduced pain and inflammation, relax your aching muscles and relieve mental stress. Soaking in the evening promotes restful sleep, with plenty of room for family and friends to share a relaxing soak beneath the stars.
The innovative bowed sidelines of the Kona, Sport and Splash Series are more comfortable than conventional swim spas, creating a more spacious swim area with greater freedom of movement. The hybrid designs of the V150 and V150W deliver even more versatility, without sacrificing the advanced construction and hydrodynamics found in other ATV models. Whichever model you select, you will enjoy exercise, rehabilitation, relaxation, and party time year-round.
It’s an aquatic gymnasium built to last you for many years.

Models & Key Features
An ATV delivers “big” performance for swimming, exercising and just relaxing. Optional swim jets create a current that can be adjusted from a gentle front crawl to a pace that will challenge even a competitive swimmer. Available in six models and two lengths: 14 and 17 feet. See model details.
The true four foot (122 cm) water depth allows for a more extensive full torso range of exercises when immersed in the water. The open level floor area is lightly textured for more stable footing during aerobic workouts. Swim strokes, leg kicks, resistance movements, and low-impact range of motion exercises are all options for your active efforts and healthy life. It can also be just a place to kick back and float away stress or laugh and play with the kids. An ATV™ is a true action vessel for your whole family to enjoy all year-round.
The innovative bowed sidelines of the ATV™ are more stylized and allow for a more spacious swim and workout space than comparable rectangular swim spas. Whether your body position is horizontal while swimming, vertical during aerobic exercise, or seated in resistance/strength workouts, the vessel area accommodates greater space for mobility and workout freedom without kicking or banging into walls.
Built tougher than other swim spas, from quality bonded polymer resins similar to that used in boats. They can even be craned-in over the house and be partially sunk into the ground and surrounded by a deck. A Swim Spa generally costs less and takes less time to install than custom concrete and vinyl-lined pools unless it is going to be countersunk into a ground vault. Depending on the jurisdiction and your installation plan, they often do not need a building permit or special fencing. It can be a year-round pool with a proper insulation cover.
