What is a refinancing and how can it help you

Refinancing is the process of replacing an existing finance contract with a new one, commonly done to obtain a cheaper loan deal. It is sought after by individuals and businesses for various reasons, such as changes in financial circumstances, business structure, or the desire to consolidate multiple finances.

But by far the most common reason for sourcing refinancing is to get a cheaper loan deal. That may mean achieving lower repayments or getting finance at a cheaper interest rate.

Recently, interest rates on lending have been reduced due to the RBA’s monetary policy as part of the nation’s coronavirus stimulus measures. This has led to significant cost reductions for borrowing in various sectors, including recreational and commercial marine vessels.

Boat Loan Refinancing Calculator

So what might refinancing cost you? What might your possible repayments be? We make that easy to work out with our refinancing calculator. You can use it whenever suits you. While you’re enjoying time on your boat, working in your business on or off the water, at home dealing with your finances, day or night, our calculator is open for business.


The boat loan repayment calculator is easy to use and can be an incredible assistance in planning how you would like your refinancing deal structured.


  • Enter the amount you want to pay out existing finance or for a balloon or residual.
  • Enter a preferred lending term.
  • Enter the interest rate which we are currently advertising for the financing product you want.
  • If business lending, select the amount you would like for a balloon/residual.


The device automatically calculates the repayment estimated on those values. Not all fees and charges are allowed for, neither are specifics pertaining to your loan, so it is a guide only but a great loan tool.


Once you have the basics entered, it’s time to go to work and realise the true potential of this calculator. The loan amount will be constant as you know how much you need to finance. But by varying the other values, you can see how the repayments change.


  • Vary the loan term – longer term gives lower repayments, shorter-term gives higher repayments.
  • Vary the interest rate to that for another loan product to see how repayments vary for say Chattel Mortgage compared with Leasing.
  • Vary the balloon/residual amount, see how that changes the repayments to assist in deciding how you would like us to structure your refinance.


A quick call to us and we’ll source you a quote to clarify the results generated.

Compare Lower Boat Loan Interest Rates

If you took out your existing loan when lending rates were at a peak, then chances are you’re keen to secure a cheaper interest rate loan. Currently, interest rates are at historic lows as the RBA implements measures to stimulate the economy due to the coronavirus pandemic. The current low-interest rates are available on new loans and refinancing.


While rates are low across the board, individual lenders still offer varying rates on different lending types and in different market sectors. A small basis point difference in rates may seem insignificant on one level, but when calculated out over the full term of marine financing, that relatively small variation can be a significant amount in dollars. And that is real money you’ll be paying over the odds.


Sourcing the cheapest interest rates on refinancing starts with comparing rates across lenders. For consumers, we’re prepared a lender interest rate comparison chart to easily see how our rates come out cheapest against a selection of other lenders in the boat loan scene.


For business borrowers, we have compiled a chart that compares interest rates across the different finance products. Allowing you to easily compare repayments on Leasing against Chattel Mortgage and against CHP for your refinancing requirements.


When arranging to refinance, we do so at fixed interest rates. So with your refinanced loan, you can enjoy our cheaper interest rates across the full fixed term.

Boat Refinancing FAQs

Refinancing a boat loan requires careful consideration of a number of issues. We’ve covered off on many of them on our web page and add to that information with direct answers to specific questions here. As with all Jade boat loan enquiries and applications, each refinancing request is treated on an individual basis. To directly respond to your specific queries about refinancing your boat loan, please reach out to our expert consultants on 1300 000 003.

  • Possibly yes but that is dependent on a number of factors. This will depend on the interest rate on your existing loan compared with the current interest rate. In 2020 interest rates hit historic low levels which would make repayments on a marine loan sourced at those rates less than at the higher rate applicable in previous years.

    Another consideration is that in refinancing you will be seeking a used marine loan rather than possibly the new watercraft loan that you originally arranged. Individual lenders may attach different interest rates to some older boats.

    The interest rate offered on all marine loans is subject to the credit profile and financial circumstances of individual applicants. If your financial situation and/or credit profile has significantly improved since you arranged your existing  loan, you could be offered a cheaper interest rate in refinancing.

  • Yes. Businesses have the choice of a number of loan types for marine finance including Chattel Mortgage, Leasing and CHP. Refinancing involves establishing a new loan and that can be established under a different finance facility.

    You may choose to move from a Chattel Mortgage to a lease or vice versa. When refinancing, consideration should be given to the fees and charges applied by the individual lender in establishing the new finance deal. These charges should be included when considering the overall costs of refinancing compared with continuing with the existing loan.

  • The reason an individual has to refinance a marine loan will vary. These may include changes to their financial circumstances where they would be seeking a lower repayment or different conditions on their loan. The original loan may have been established at a much higher than the current interest rate and a benefit is perceived in refinancing at the current lower rate.

    If the original loan involved joint ownership of the watercraft and that ownership structure has changed, a refinance of the loan may be required. Refinance may also be requested by individuals as a result of change to a partnership or marriage.

    Businesses may choose to refinance due to a change in the business structure or financial situation or as part of a wider restructure of a business’ financial arrangements. A business may also be seeking finance at a lower interest rate.

    Refinancing will incur the costs and charges applicable to establishing a new loan and these should be taken into account in the overall cost of the change.

  • Refinancing involves a Jade consultant sourcing you a quote for a new watercraft loan based on what is owed on your existing loan. This involves establishing a new loan which may or may not be with a different lender to your existing secured loan.

    You, or your Jade consultant on your behalf, will need to source a payout figure on your existing loan to establish exactly the amount that needs to be refinanced. Sourcing a loan quote follows the same procedure and requires similar application details as establishing the original loan.

    Secured Marine Loans include break fees if you payout your loan early. These fees need to be covered when refinancing and should be considered. If the refinancing quote that we source you will not improve your current watercraft loan situation, we would not recommend you proceed.

    If you purchased your vessel new your original loan was established as a new marine loan. Refinancing will be based on used watercraft loan conditions and requirements.

    In requesting a refinance quote, there is no obligation to proceed with the loan.
