Atlantic Cruising Yachts expands deal with LH-Finance

Publish date:

Jeanneau and Fountaine Pajot dealer Atlantic Cruising Yachts said it has an enhanced partnership with marine financing solutions provider LH-Finance.

The strategic partnership includes not only retail and inventory financing, but also teaming up to offer a VIP experience for pre-qualified buyers at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis. The show will be held from Oct. 5-9 this year.

Customers who are pre-qualified will receive free admission for two and a VIP package that includes a parking voucher, Mercedes exclusive drivers for hotel-to-boat-show transportation and access to the VIP tent, with complimentary drinks and food.

“This is an excellent opportunity for people to decide which yacht is best for them while also enjoying some really great VIP benefits,” Atlantic Cruising Yachts president Chris Bent said in a statement.

To pre-qualify, applicants provide their overall financial picture (income, assets and debts). Credit reports are not pulled during this process and credit ratings will not be affected, LH-Finance said.

Customers will be informed by their lending specialist of the loan amount they qualify for to help them decide which models to see at the show.

Applicants are advised to go to to get started on the pre-qualification process and receive their tickets and VIP experience.

“We are delighted to work closely with a successful company such as Atlantic Cruising Yachts and play an important role in assuring that, as a partner of LH-Finance, they continue to successfully grow at a fast pace,” said Herve Bonnet, president and CEO of LH-Finance.
