LH-Finance, the marine division of United Bank in Glastonbury, Conn., today announced an enhanced partnership with Dufour Yachts.

“We are delighted to move a step forward with LH-Finance and are convinced this agreement will bring new opportunities to fortify our strategy in North America,” Dufour Yachts CEO Salvatore Serio said in a statement. “The timing is perfectly aligned with the launch of our new ‘Exclusive Range,’ including an enhanced version of our 56 and a spectacular new 63-foot flagship.”

“We are proud to continue to support such a prestigious brand as Dufour Yachts and play a key role in their North American growth by providing innovative financial tools to their dealer network,” said William H.W. Crawford IV, CEO of United Bank, the parent company of LH-Finance.
