Groupe Beneteau enhances partnership with L-H Finance

L-H Finance and Groupe Beneteau said they have enhanced their strategic partnership and extended their agreement through the 2017-18 boat show season.

The companies began their alliance at the boat shows in Miami in 2016.

“Deciding to enhance our strategic partnership with L-H Finance was an easy decision,” George Armendariz, CEO of Groupe Beneteau Americas, said in a statement. “As world leaders in boat manufacturing, we choose to align ourselves with leaders like LH-Finance that stand for excellence in customer service.”

LH-Finance said it will continue to provide its VIP Pre-Qualification Program to buyers of new yachts. The company’s relationship with Groupe Beneteau will now not only include retail and inventory financing, but also exclusive banking products for dealers and customers in North America.

“It’s this type of collaboration that will propel our industry as a whole as we welcome new boat owners into our community,” said Herve Bonnet, president and CEO of LH-Finance. “This is a vital component to growing our business and it brings me great pride to announce this enhanced partnership with such a prestigious group as Groupe Beneteau.”
