Financing a Custom Built Boat

Boat loans for ‘long delivery’ vessels
While there is a great selection of new boats readily available in the dealer ‘showroom’ and on the water, many models are custom-built or fitted to suit specific customer specifications. Most high-end, luxury models have to be ordered in advance with varying delivery waiting times.

Even in the lower and mid-range categories, you may be offered a custom fit-out for the interior or for selected engine and electronic component. Processes which may take weeks, months or for the ultimate luxury or commercial vessels, years

So how do you arrange finance for a boat that you won’t be taking delivery of for some time?
You will no doubt want the assurance that the finance or boat loan is secure before you place the order. The boat builder will also want to know your finance is secure before they commit their resources to building your vessel.

This is a specialty area of marine finance, where a broker can be of great value to you.

Pre-Approved Boat Loans

Depending on the delivery timing, a pre-approved boat loan may suit your purpose. Your Jade broker can secure you the appropriate finance package to suit that particular boat and have it all approved and waiting when you are ready to proceed.

Usually pre-approved boat loans are valid for a set time, eg 30-60 days. We can liaise with the boat builder to provide the necessary assurances that the finance has been approved so they can commence work and then finalise the new boat finance deal with you when the boat is complete and ready for delivery.

If the timeframe is greater than the standard pre-approved timeframe, your Jade Boat Loans broker will work hard to arrange a suitable loan structure to suit the timeframe.
