Dufour Yachts signs financing deal with LH-Finance

LH-Finance announced an enhanced partnership with Dufour Yachts.

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

In February LH-Finance and Dufour announced a new association, with special financing terms provided to retail buyers of Dufour yachts. By signing an agreement today the two parties also are strengthening their collaboration on inventory financing.

“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.
