Nov 20, 2007
A primary concern that you would have on deciding to buy a boat would be a loan. It is a good idea to do some research and find out all the different loan options and what it entails. Once you have all this information on hand you can start looking for a loan on the basis of your requirement. You would be required to provide the lending organization with some personal information for them to scrutinize

Different lenders have different policies and other criteria to sanction loans. You would have to go through these details to see which kind of a loan would be suitable for you and if it gives you the most comfortable options. .

The sources that will either give or assist you with a loan to buy your boat are Banks, Credit unions, Boat dealers, Organizations that cater to financial services or agents.

In case you have availed of the services of a lender earlier you can always check with them whether they give loans for buying boats. In case they do, you would have to find out the terms and conditions, repayment policies and rates of interest. Once you have all this information, it would be prudent to compare this with other loan providers. This will help you to come to a decision on which would be the most feasible organization to deal that and that would give you the most benefits.

Various kinds of boat loans
Different loans are available from different sources. You would have to study the various aspects of these loans before deciding on the kind of loan you would like to take.
Some of the loan options are:

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

All these loan types give you different requisites and varied rates of interest. You would have to decide on the amount and kind of loan that you want and this in turn would depend on the boat that you want to buy.

Once you have decided on the organization you would like to approach for the loan, you would have to give them certain basic personal information. Apart from detailed contact information, you would have to furnish them with particulars of your income, the monthly expenditure and what the amount of loan that you need is. All this information is necessary for them to establish what your repaying capacity is. Besides all this you would have to give them particulars of the boat that you would like to buy, such as the model and description and also the title and registration of the boat.

One more important aspect of the loan criteria is the down payment that you would have to pay up front to avail of the loan. In case you can pay a substantial amount, the loan that you would be entitled to would also be larger.

You should also consider the repayment period. If you opt for a longer time to pay back, no doubt the premium amount would be lesser, but the amount of interest that you would end up paying in the long run would be much more. You should also consider including the essential equipment in the loan amount so that you have a fully equipped boat to start with.
