While Australia has some great boat builders, there are plenty of other international manufacturers that have models available on the Australian market. The US boating scene is massive with many great brands worth considering. One which has some new 2021 models available is Sea Fox. Based in the US state of South Carolina, Sea Fox is a leading brand in the US and offers a great line up of fishing and family boats in Australia through JSW Powersports.
We take a look at the Sea Fox range and offer finance direction for the purchase.

Acquiring Your Sea Fox
Sea Fox is a US-based manufacturer but as the boats are imported into Australia and sold through a Gold Coast marine dealer, there should be no issues with local regulations in regard to an international built boat. If you were purchasing a boat from a seller in another country then you would have to address customs and local boating regulations.
Financing a Sea Fox
Jade Boat Loans provides finance on the Sea Fox range and you can quickly see how the advertised price on the 328 Commander may work out on loan repayments. The price tag features a serious dollar value so the better the marine loan we can source for you, the better your boating enjoyment.
The Secured Boat Loan is the most commonly used type of loan for boats purchased for private recreational use. This loan features a standard personal loan format but with the Jade enhancements.
Jade sources the cheapest boat loans quote from across our large number of banks and non-bank lenders. Each deal is negotiated individually to best meet the requirements of our customers. The boat is put up as security against the loan which is standard practice with a secured loan.
Repayments are fixed for the loan term and payable on a monthly basis. Additional payments are permitted if desired.
The interest rate on this type of loan is fixed for the entire loan term so it won’t change throughout that period. With interest rates currently at very low levels combined with Jade’s ability to secure the cheapest interest rates on boat finance available, 2021 is shaping as an ideal time to buy a boat.
One aspect of a secured loan which will likely be of particular interest to Sea Fox buyers is securing the preferred loan term. With a significant price tag and Jade’s ability to achieve no deposit loans, many buyers will be seeking an extended loan term to reduce the monthly repayments.
Some banks do not offer specific boat loans and will only offer a generic personal loan for boat purchases. This can make negotiating for a longer loan term potentially a challenge. Jade is a specialist marine lender and we are accredited with lenders that also specialise in marine finance. Through our contacts we can proceed to negotiate longer loan terms than you may be offered if you source your own Sea Fox finance.
To work out what loan term you think would meet your expectations and work with your budget, simply use our Boat Loan Calculator. By varying the loan term while leaving the interest rate and total loan unchanged, you can easily see how the repayments change. This is only an estimate but a valuable tool in pre-planning your loan to brief your Jade consultant.
When buying a boat of the calibre of a Sea Fox 328 Commander, engaging the services of Jade as your professional marine lender can deliver significantly better outcome in interest rates, loan terms and overall a better marine finance deal.
