L-H Finance signs deal with Jeanneau/Prestige Yachts

Jeanneau/Prestige Yachts is partnering with LH-Finance.

Jeanneau/Prestige Yachts is partnering with LH-Finance, continuing a growing collaboration between the finance company and Groupe Beneteau.

To debut the partnership, the companies will launch the unique VIP Program that LH-Finance has developed with partner Active Interest Media at Yachts Miami Beach and with the National Marine Manufacturers Association at the Progressive Miami International Boat Show and Strictly Sail.

Both shows run Feb. 16-20. (Trade Only Today is part of AIM.)

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

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

“We are excited to strengthen the ties between Jeanneau/Prestige Yachts and LH-Finance and benefit from their unique innovative VIP program, as well as their expertise and competitiveness in marine lending,” Jeanneau America president Nicolas Harvey said in a statement.

“We are proud to support a brand as prestigious as Jeanneau/Prestige and be able to sustain their strong growth in North America by providing them customized retail financing solutions and a state-of-the art inventory financing management system,” LH-Finance president and CEO Hervé Bonnet said
