Boat Loans : The Whats, The Hows and The Whys!

Nov 14, 2007
If you are considering buying a boat, then you need to know a little about receiving a boat loan. This basic information regarding a boat loan will help understand what to look for in a loan so you can make a wiser decision. There are a lot of lenders available that will be happy to provide you with a boat loan. However, this does not mean that you should accept the first offer that you receive. Lenders are very different and you need to find the one that suits your needs the best.

Listed below are several sources that are available for getting a boat loan.

* Bank
* Credit unions
* Dealers
* Financial services
* Boat brokers

If you already have a lender that you have done business with in the past then you should check with them first to see if they provide boat loans. If they do, learn what their terms and conditions are. After finding out what they have available, you should then compare different companies to see what each one has to offer you. You will be comparing things like the terms of the agreement that you will be accepting and the interest rates you will be receiving on this loan.

Types of boat loans

Just as there are several different sources for receiving a loan there are also different types of loans. These types include the following.

* Fixed-rate loan
* Simple interest loan
* Variable rate loan
* Balloon payment loan

Each one of these types provides you with different terms and rates. You will need to learn about these types to find out what will be best for you and your current situation.

Once you have chosen your lender and the type of boat loan you need there are a few basic steps that you will need to be prepared to deal with. First, be ready to provide both personal information and information concerning the boat you are trying to buy. Personal information will include things such as name, address, contact number, income and monthly bills. This is to determine whether or not you will be able to pay back the loan. Boat information includes things such as a description of the boat, the cost, registration and title.

The amount of down payment that you plan on having will make a difference in the loan offers that you receive. The higher the down payment the better your choices will be. The length of the loan is a very important aspect. The longer it runs the lower your payments will be but the more interest you will pay, so consider this carefully. It is a good idea to include any gear that you may need for the boat in on the loan, so you will be completely ready to start enjoying your boat as soon as the boat loan has been finalized.
