Marathon Specialty Finance For All Your Recreational Financing Headquarters.

Marathon Specialty Finance is an industry leader in the recreational finance sector facilitating loans for boats and RV’s. Founded by Troy Tiedeman, his wife Maureen, and Glenn Overton, the crew’s collective 50-plus years of experience, high quality service, and exceptional staff provides Marathon Specialty Finance with the opportunity to build long-term relationships with its vast and varied clients.

Troy hails from the great state of Minnesota. Growing up surrounded by 10,000 lakes, boating runs through Troy’s bloodline. Getting families out on the water and back to fun has always been important to Troy. A seasoned professional and forever young at heart, Troy has more than 22 years of experience in the boat financing space.

Maureen Tiedeman, Troy’s better half for the better part of 13 years, is a Jersey girl. Maureen grew up on the lively New Jersey shore. Beaches, shorelines, and myriad marinas were always mere steps away. Partners in business and life, Maureen and Troy’s love of the recreational industry is a key reason why they, along with Glenn Overton, launched Marathon Specialty Finance. The aim is to bring a personal touch with a local spin to the Mid-Atlantic region.

Glenn mans the firm’s Wilmington, NC location. Prospective clients are encouraged to email or stop in and talk with Glenn. Involved in the marine industry for over 30 years, Glenn’s tried and true experience in the recreational business is invaluable. He is always prepared to give his all to every client.

Clients set the pace, and the Marathon Specialty Finance crew will walk you through every step. The company’s proven track record in the service industry and its exceptional team of dedicated finance professionals will make every buying experience a seamless, secure, and reliable process.

Via Marathon Specialty Finance’s efficient and secure website, loan application can be emailed directly to the company. A strong lender network is always ready to offer competitive rates for new and used purchases, as well as refinancing.

New banking regulations enacted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis made it difficult for the boat and RV finance space. Lenders are subject to many more rigorous restrictions. In short, lenders do not and cannot lend funds like they used to. That’s where Marathon Specialty Finance comes in. The company’s goal is to lift the barriers surrounding the recreational lending space. Its mission is making individuals’ lifelong dreams come true.

Let us be the front runner for your financing needs, we’ll go the distance for you.
