L-H Finance partners with Annapolis boat shows

L-H Finance, which specializes in marine finance, says it will continue with its sponsorship of the 2018 Red Carpet VIP Lounge during the United States Sail and the United States Power Boat Shows in Annapolis. It will be the second year that L-H has sponsored the VIP area.

“These VIP Lounges allow our clients and partners to experience the boat show in a very different way,” said Herve Bonnet, CEO of LH-Finance, in a statement. "We remain dedicated to making the boat buying experience second to none in the marine industry.”

Bonnet said that LH-Finance's VIP program lets boat buyers get pre-qualified for marine financing for its participating boat brands. It also gives buyers the opportunity to experience the boat shows in an exclusive manner.

Paul Jacobs, president of the Annapolis Boat Shows, called last year’s VIP experience an “absolute success.” “Many of our customers expressed their gratitude and appreciation for the service,” Jacobs said in the statement. "We continue to be pleased to join forces with LH-Finance and offer a unique VIP Experience for our show attendees."

The United States Sailboat Show will take place October 4 - 8, 2018, and the United States Powerboat Show will happen October 11 - 14, 2018. Both events are held at the City Dock and Harbor in Annapolis, Maryland.
