The Newport Exhibition Group, owners and producers of the Newport International Boat show, said LH-Finance has signed a multiyear sponsorship agreement to be the show’s premier marine finance and lending source.

“We are delighted to partner with the Newport International Boat Show as their premier lending source and sponsor of the LH-Finance VIP Lounge,” LH-Finance CEO Herve Bonnet said in a statement. “The Newport International Boat Show organizers are dedicated to enhancing the nautical lifestyle, just as we are equally as dedicated to our customers at LH-Finance. It is a win-win for both of us.”

The Newport show spans 13 acres of the Rhode Island city’s waterfront and will take place Sept. 14-17. LH-Finance will host pre-qualified customers in what will be called the LH-Finance VIP Lounge in the Bohlin tent.

LH-Finance’s VIP program provides potential buyers with the chance to get pre-qualified for marine financing before purchasing participating new-boat brands.

“We look forward to welcoming LH-Finance as a sponsor to the Newport International Boat Show,” Newport Exhibition Group director of corporate partnerships Gail Alofsin said.

“The prequalifying service that LH-Finance offers is a tremendous value to our attendees when they find the boat of their dreams at the show. Attendees can visit the Newport International Boat Show website to learn more about financing and how to become pre-qualified.”
