Securing a Yacht Loan
As specialists in marine finance, we provide finance for both power and sail boats. Our Yacht Loans are a versatile secured format loan which will suit most buyers of new yachts. The yacht is accepted as security for the loan, with many applicants not required to provide additional collateral against their loan.
For this loan, we source our cheaper boat loan interest rates at a fixed rate. The rate will remain unchanged over the full loan term. The term is also fixed which means fixed repayments. No deposit loans can be arranged so the full purchase price of the yacht can be included in the finance.
Where additional accessories such as sails and safety equipment are required as separate purchases, speak with our consultants about how we may include these items in the yacht loan. This can be arranged for many buyers, where purchased concurrently with the vessel.
We can arrange pre-purchase loan approval so buyers can arrive at the Sydney Boat Show with their finance confirmed and be ready to order. With the Reserve Bank Board due to meet on 1 August, 2 days before the show opens, to make their next rate decision, it may be opportune to have yacht finance confirmed before then, in the event a rate rise is announced.
To apply for finance, simply contact us and you will be assigned a consultant to handle your loan. They will advise the paperwork required under ASIC Consumer Finance law. We will source the most suitable lender and loan with the cheapest interest rate from across our vast lender selection. On approval of the offer, we handle the processing and assist with settlement.
If applying for a loan prior to purchase, simply estimate the loan amount required and provide an indication of the type of yacht being purchased. Any offer will be amended with the specific details after the purchase is finalised. To get started, use our calculator to obtain loan estimates on yachts being considered.
The Sydney Boat Show is one of the biggest annual events on the Australian boating calendar. A ‘not to be missed’ especially for buyers.
