The National Marine Lenders Association released its latest review of the U.S. marine lending industry at MRAA’s Dealer Week Conference in Tampa, FL. titled A Fresh Look at Marine Lending, the 16-page brochure reveals current facts and perspectives about marine finance and its association with the recreational marine industry.   

The document targets commercial banks, credit unions and all consumer lenders seeking new opportunities to secure high-quality marine loan assets and relationships within their businesses.

“We have enjoyed solid expansion in all areas of consumer and floor plan marine lending over the past nine years”, says NMLA’s President John Haymond of Medallion Bank in Salt Lake City, UT. The revised edition of Fresh Look discusses why it is beneficial to finance boats and what resources are available nationwide.

Our information is designed to be shared at each lenders’ executive level to support strategic planning for asset growth.”  

Fresh Look is available to everyone as a written report as well as in .pdf format.
