There is one thing more important than buying the right boat

words by Finlease

Once you decide to buy a boat, you’ll be faced with the decision on how you are going to pay for it. This type of purchase will involve some type of financing, whether it’s a credit line through the home, an unsecured loan, or a boat loan. Choosing the right financing source can be just as important as choosing the right boat and therefore it’s certainly worth obtaining a pre-approval for your loan. That way, you are in a better bargaining position when you find the boat you really want and avoid losing the opportunity presented to you.

When choosing a source of financing, there are several things to consider. The first factor is how long you plan to keep the boat. If you are buying a first boat, it’ll make more sense to find a loan that will be flexible enough to accommodate an early payout with significant exit costs.

If you are purchasing the boat of your dreams, you should expect to have it financed for a long time which makes it important to get a fixed rate loan with terms that allow for a low monthly payment. Make sure you know exactly what you are signing up for so there are no nasty surprises further down the line.

Choosing the right type of boat loan is a very important part of the entire buying process. You can start with an experienced boat finance brokerage such as us at Finlease, and we will show you how each one of the available options fit into your profile.
