Lexington, SC December 14, 2015 – Encore Boat Builders, LLC (Encore), a leading manufacturer of quality, affordable pontoon boats under the Encore Bentley brand, has struck a deal with Honda Marine (Honda) to provide a new inventory finance program for its U.S. dealers. Financing will be provided through Northpoint Commercial Finance (Northpoint), a leader in inventory financing solutions for the marine industry and an exclusive partner to Honda. Encore has also partnered with Northpoint since 2013 to provide inventory financing to its dealers.

With this 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 pontoon boats 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,” said Steve Deese, founder and president of Encore Boat Builders. “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.”

The world’s largest engine manufacturer, Honda brings the same environmental stewardship to its marine outboards as it does the vehicles that have proven themselves for decades. Mark DiPietro, senior manager of Honda Marine stated, “We were the first to offer a full line of dependable four-stroke engines, and had the first four-stroke engine to exceed both EPA and CARB emission standards. We’re happy to help Encore dealers align with the growing consumer demand for more reliable, cleaner technology that leaves our waters more pristine, and help them be more cost-efficient along the way.”

Northpoint’s SVP of marine business, Russell Baqir, said the finance company is pleased to help two great companies work together to help dealers. “We appreciate the opportunity to put our trademark customer focus to work on crafting this financing package. It benefits all parties involved.”
