Suzuki Marine offers financing on engines

Suzuki Marine is offering a finance plan for customers who want to repower their boats with new engines.

Because securing financing for an engine can be difficult, and given the cost of upgrading to outboards with new technology, many people who would like to repower boats are not able to do so. As a result, Suzuki Motor of America Inc. is teaming with GE Capital Retail Finance to offer repower finance plans through GE Capital Retail Bank.

Suzuki Marine dealers will be able to offer repower customers retail financing on new Suzuki outboard engines, as well as the cost of rigging and parts.

“Since many Suzuki Marine dealers specialize in repower sales, the ability to offer financing is an extremely valuable sales tool,” Suzuki Motor of America dealer operations manager Jonathan Woolson said in a statement. “Based on the positive responses from some of our key dealers, I think we have a winner.”

Participating dealers will offer introductory rates as low as 5.99 percent APR for 60 months on engine-only purchases through Dec. 31.
