Beneteau America said it has a new strategic partnership with LH-Finance that will start at the Miami boat shows in February.

The partnership covers boat show special retail conditions and the launch of the unique VIP Program LH-Finance developed with partner Active Interest Media and the National Marine Manufacturers Association at the 2017 Yachts Miami Beach, as well as the Miami International Boat Show and Strictly Sail. Both shows will run from Feb. 16-20.

The new program gives applicants an opportunity to get pre-qualified by LH-Finance for marine financing in advance of shopping for a yacht at both shows.

Pre-qualified customers will receive the LH-Finance VIP Card, which entitles them to two free entry tickets to the boat shows, complimentary admission to the Yachts Miami Beach and Miami International Boat Show VIP lounges and preferred treatment when they visit the booths of participating yacht builders.

Getting pre-qualified is the initial step in the boat loan process. All that applicants to the LH-Finance VIP Program need to do is fill in a quick form on the LH-Finance website and the credit department will contact them for a quick review of their financials.

“We are thrilled by this partnership with LH-Finance, an innovative marine lender that offers unique solutions, and excited by this unseen VIP program that will certainly appeal to serious customers when they enter the fast lane at our booths in Miami,” Beneteau America president Laurent Fabre said in a statement.

“And for potential clients considering buying a Beneteau but think financing is too complicated a process for them, this might just be the trigger they need to move forward,” LH-Finance president and CEO Hervé Bonnet said.
