Compact pontoon boat manufacturer Apex Marine Inc. has partnered with Honda Marine to provide a new inventory finance program.

The program is exclusive for authorized dealers who purchase Qwest, Paddle Qwest and Gillgetter brand compact pontoon boats outfitted with Honda outboard marine engines.

Financing will be provided through Northpoint Commercial Finance.

Under the new inventory finance program with Honda Marine, dealers can draw on their Northpoint line of credit to fund purchases of pontoon boats with Honda engine packages.

“We’re pleased to work with Honda and Northpoint to help our dealers differentiate themselves in the marketplace,” Mark Dupuie, president of Apex Marine, said in a statement. “Dealers can use this program to fill out inventory, reduce costs and pass savings along to customers if they choose. It’s an especially attractive offer as Honda is a top brand in the industry.”
