Sebrite Financial joins MRAA

Sebrite offers boat financing programs and works directly with dealerships.

Sebrite Financial, an originator and service provider of direct and third-party consumer loans for client lending institutions, joined the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas as a partner member.

Sebrite offers boat financing programs and works directly with dealerships. Loans that Sebrite offers range from $5,000 to $4 million and encompass older-model financing and extended-service contracts.

“Partnering with the MRAA is just one way Sebrite supports our retail boating customers and helps get more boats on the water,” Sebrite president Bridget Smith said in a statement. “Our experienced team and extended program network allow Sebrite to find the best financing package for almost any boater.”

MRAA members can enroll in Sebrite’s customer financing system. Online portals allow sales teams to submit secure credit applications directly from the showroom floor.

“Sebrite specializes in marine financing and understands the sometimes complex needs of boat dealerships during the sales process,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said. “With more than 40 years matching boaters with the right financial instrument, we’re honored to have Sebrite on board and supporting the association and the entire dealer network.”
