Bank of Boston Corp. plans to sell its Ganis Credit Corp. consumer lending business to Deutsche Financial Services for $30 million, as the Boston bank seeks to shed lagging businesses.

The unit of Germany's Deutsche Bank AG would buy a company with 160 lending officers and other employees and 12 offices in seven states. Ganis focuses on making loans to buyers of boats and recreational vehicles. Most of Ganis' loans, about $1 billion in total, had already been sold by Bank of Boston.
