Financing specialist LH-Finance agreed to a multiyear deal to co-sponsor a Red Carpet VIP Lounge that will be introduced at the United States Sailboat Show and the United States Powerboat Show this fall.

The VIP lounge will include complimentary catered light fare during the shows and happy hour appetizers, as well as complimentary wine, beer and spirits.

“We are pleased to join forces with LH-Finance and offer a special VIP experience for our attendees,” Annapolis Boat Shows president Paul Jacobs said in a statement. “From time to time a quality company comes to us with a great idea that is win-win and this is one of those occasions. We could not be more pleased to announce this multi-year agreement to provide special access to red carpet service for our clients.”

LH-Finance is known for its VIP PreQualification Program, which provides potential boat buyers with the opportunity to get pre-qualified for marine financing in advance of purchasing participating new-boat brands.

“This announcement is significant, as it continues to perpetuate LH-Finance’s dedication to making the boat-buying experience second to none in the marine industry,” LH-Finance CEO Herve Bonnet said.

LH-Finance will back the VIP experience at the sailboat show from Oct. 5-9 and at the powerboat show from Oct. 12-15. Both are held at the City Dock and Harbor in Annapolis.
