LH-Finance in the US has signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with Newport Exhibition Group, owner and producer of the Newport International Boat Show, to become the show’s premiere marine finance and lending source.

“We are delighted to partner with the Newport International Boat Show, as their premiere lending source and sponsor of the LH-Finance VIP Lounge,” says Herve Bonnet, CEO of LH-Finance, in a statement. “The Newport International Boat Show organisers are dedicated to enhancing the nautical lifestyle, just as we are equally as dedicated to our customers at LH-Finance. It is a win-win for both of us.”

LH-Finance will host their VIP pre-qualified customers in in what is now being called the ‘LH-Finance VIP Lounge’ located in the Bohlin Tent. The company’s VIP program provides potential boat buyers with the opportunity to get pre-qualified for marine financing in advance of purchasing participating new boat brands.

This year’s Newport International Boat Show runs from September 14-17, spanning 13 acres of prime waterfront in Newport, Rhode Island. It is one of the largest in-water shows in the country and the kick-off to the boat show season.
