Trailer boats are possibly the most popular style of boat as most models can double for activities such as fishing and diving as well as for general recreational and on-water fun with family and friends. This popularity means a lot of manufacturers in this space and buyers are presented with many great models to consider.
Several new trailer boats have recently hit the market and boaters keen to upgrade are urged to expedite the process. Firstly to ensure they secure the boat they want as supply in some areas is still tight. Second is the prospect of further interest rate rises on the horizon. The RBA moved on rates at its May meeting and additional rises are strongly expected this year. Securing finance before a rise can mean less in loan repayments and more for bait and that extra gear and accessories.

Trailer Boat Finance
With many new models on the market, buyers should be getting serious about making decisions on make and model and on finance. While the official start of the boating season may be a few months away, another rise in the cash rate by the RBA is far more imminent. When the RBA acts, the lenders follow.
Securing the boat and the boat loan ahead of a rate rise can mean significant savings. We provide our Secured Boat Loan for trailer boats. This loan is as versatile as a trailer boat, suited to many buyers and many new boats. With our expertise, we may also be able to include the cost of the trailer in the same loan as the boat.
