We’ll be your finance skippers
When considering whether a particular boat loan is right for you, ask yourself how long you are likely to keep the boat? Will it be purely a pleasure boat, or could there be some business use? In evaluating one boat finance proposal over another, Finlease can make you aware of obligations like your minimum commitments, the boat loan’s security and any special conditions which apply.

How to drive a harder bargain
Before you go out and start shopping for a boat, it’s worth obtaining a pre-approval for your boat loan. First complete an application for the boat finance, then you’ll be in a better bargaining positioning and can confidentially negotiate knowing that the boat finance is ready to go. We suggest first putting in place a loan for a ‘hypothetical’ boat, you’ll pay no application fees. Once your boat loan is approved, you’re under no obligation to proceed.

Also, don’t limit your options by securing your boat loan against real estate. If you are using your existing bank, make sure they have not ‘cross collateralised’ the boat loan against your home or other assets. With Finlease, in 99% of instances the boat should stand as its own security.

Boat Buyer's Checklist
Here’s what lenders are looking for when approving a loan:

  1. Your capacity to meet repayment based on your income.
  2. For 100% finance you need to prove that you have 'tangible' net worth, i.e. equity in property or investments. Our financiers do not want a mortgage, but will simply want to feel comfortable that you have the ability to make good any shortfall between the second hand value of the boat and the amount owed.
  3. A good credit history.
  4. Stable employment and income
