What You Should Know About Boat Financing
by: Paula Radmall

Boat financing is a lot like getting a loan for a home or a car. However, you will want to use a lender that has some knowledge in this area so they can provide you with the best service possible. One advantage of using a company that has experience dealing with boats is that they will be able to let you know if the boat you are interested in is worth the amount you are considering paying for it. They also know how to determine any depreciated value from the retail price to ensure you get a fair deal.

A good lender can also make sure that the boat has a clear and legal title. This is very important! You don’t want to have any problems later on down the road. Buying a boat without a clear title can cause you a lot of unwanted headaches.

Shop Around

When financing a boat you need to shop around and compare different lenders. You are looking to see which one has the most experience in this area. You want them to be able to give you the best advice around. You will also want to compare the interest rates. The lower the interest rate you receive the better it will be for you.

Another thing to look for when searching for a lender for boat financing is the terms of the loan. Make sure that what you are being offered is really a good deal. Many times you will receive offers that sound good but when you really begin to check into them they aren’t as good as they sounded.

When boat financing, your down payment is a big factor as well as your monthly payments. You want to go as high as you can without putting a strain on your pocketbook. It will better for you to pay a higher down payment and shorten the duration of the loan. But don’t put yourself in a financial bind.

Consider Your Personal Status

Consider your personal status before you go out searching for a company for boat financing. To begin with, how is your credit history? Your credit history will play a big role in what type of offers you will receive. The better your credit score the better terms and conditions you can expect from a boat financing company. Therefore, knowing your credit history will give you some idea of what types of offers you can expect.

Be sure to also take into consideration your job status. How long have you been employed at your present job? How stable is your job? Do you have enough extra income to make payments on a boat loan without having to struggle? These are a few questions that will help you decide if you are ready for boat financing. It could be that you should wait until you become a little more stable in your personal status before you apply for a boat loan.
