Encore Boat Builders LLC is partnering with Honda Marine to provide a new inventory finance program for its U.S. dealers through Northpoint Commercial Finance.

Northpoint, an exclusive partner to Honda, also has partnered with pontoon boat builder Encore since 2013 to provide financing to its dealers.

With the new agreement, once an Encore dealer activates a line of credit with Northpoint, the dealer can draw on the line to fund purchases of Encore Bentley pontoons with Honda engine packages and earn an early pay discount for 120 days. The discount applies to the entire boat package, not just the Honda engine.

“Our boats are easy to operate, affordable and come with great standard features,” Encore Boat Builders founder and president Steve Deese said in a statement. “With this exclusive financing program we are excited to offer our dealers Honda engines as another high quality standard. It will help our dealers grow their businesses and attract new customers.”
