Cruising catamaran builder Lagoon announced a new strategic partnership with marine financing solutions provider LHFinance. The two companies will launch the VIP Program LH-Finance has developed with partner Active Interest Media and the National Marine Manufacturer Association at the 2017 Yachts Miami Beach and 2017 Progressive Miami International Boat Show / Strictly Sail on Feb. 16-20.
The new VIP Program gives applicants the opportunity to get pre-qualified* by LH-Finance for marine financing in advance of shopping for a yacht at Yachts Miami Beach and/or the Miami International Boat Show/Strictly Sail, which run simultaneously in February. Pre-qualified customers will receive the LH-Finance VIP Card, which entitles them to two free entry tickets to the shows, complimentary admission to the Yachts Miami Beach and Miami International Boat Show VIP Lounges, as well as preferred treatment when they visit the boat show displays of yacht builders participating in the program.
Getting pre-qualified is the initial step in the boat loan process. All applicants to the LH-Finance VIP Program need to do is fill in a short form on the LH-Finance website and the Credit Department will contact them for a quick review of their financials.
“We are delighted by the opportunities this new partnership will bring to support our fast-paced growth in North America,” declared Fred Signat, director of Lagoon America. “The VIP program is a unique solution that clearly takes the boat manufacturer-customer relationship to the next level.”
“We are excited to be partnering with Lagoon, providing their customers with this one-of-a-kind innovative program; a quick and seamless way of being pre-qualified so that they can get the most out of their boat show experience,” added Hervé Bonnet, president and CEO of LH-Finance.
