LH-Finance and the Northwest Marine Trade Association said they will launch a “VIP Experience” at the 2018 Seattle Boat Show.

The show will run from Jan. 26 to Feb. 3 at CenturyLink Field, South Lake Union and Bell Harbor Marina.

The marine financing specialist said it is bringing its VIP prequalification program to the West Coast for the first time. LH-Finance said it is a captain-level sponsor of the show and the exclusive sponsor of the VIP Lounge at Anthony’s Pier 66 at the Bell Harbor Marina location.

“With three locations and over 1,000 boats, there’s a lot to see and take in at the Seattle Boat Show,” Katie McPhail, director of the show, said in a statement. “With this wonderful VIP Experience at our new third location at Bell Harbor Marina, attendees shopping for the boat of their dreams will be able to experience the show in true VIP fashion. Not only will they be able to relax and review their choices in the comfort of the VIP Lounge, but while visiting many of the participating manufacturers throughout the show — at all three locations — they will be treated to a one-of-a-kind boat-buying experience.”

Being a pre-qualified VIP entitles visitors to complimentary parking, the ability to skip the lines at will call and arrive directly at Anthony’s Pier 66 to pick up a VIP package that includes an LH-Finance VIP card and two complimentary tickets while enjoying complimentary light fare and beverages for two.

“We are determined to make the boat-buying experience second to none, with this expansion to the West Coast of the United States, and joining forces as a strategic partner with the Northwest Marine Trade Association, it allows all of our clients to experience boat-buying in a unique and special manner,” said Herve Bonnet, CEO of LH-Finance.
