CLEVELAND, Ohio – MarineMax, Inc. has named National City Recreation Finance as one of the preferred banks in its financing consortium, the company reported in a statement today.
Under the terms of the agreement, National City will contribute $40 million to the $280 million MarineMax credit facilities and will join Key Bank, Bank of America and GE in providing up to $260 million in bank syndicated financing to the retailer.
"MarineMax’s strong cash flow and balance sheet create a very attractive credit profile," said Alan Zang, National City's senior vice president and national sales manager.
