What to Expect from a Boat Loan:
First, the bad news: the credit crunch is real. Banks are becoming more conservative about lending money for boat purchases, and are increasingly scrutinizing credit scores and requiring borrowers to have liquidity before purchasing.
Despite the tough market, however, we can help you secure a loan for the boat of your dreams. We have worked with marine lending institutions for over 24 years and boat loans are our only business. If you’re ready and qualified to buy a boat, we will make sure you do.
