Vantage Recreational Finance, a marine and RV finance company, launched a national dock and lift consumer financing program.

The Florida-based company said it developed the program because of an increased demand from dealers and consumers during the past couple of years to finance consumer dock and lift products.

The program offers consumers the option of purchasing a new dock or lift system with a monthly payment. The program offers no-prepayment penalty, and for qualified customers, no down payment is required.

“The program was developed in response to market demand created by many of our loyal marine dealers and their customers throughout the U.S.,” Vantage Recreational Finance president Mike Harbaugh said in a statement. “We strive to address industry needs within the market and match them with targeted financial solutions. We feel this program will allow access to thousands of consumers in need of an alternative to the significant cash outlay option that currently exists.”

“Having financing available for docks and lifts is going to help us sell more units. It is also a great option for consumers to upgrade their existing dock or lift system without having to pay cash for the entire purchase,” said Jerry Hoover, owner of Willey’s Marine in McGregor, Minn.
