Obtaining a Boat Finance Approval

Here’s what lenders are looking for when approving a loan:

  1. Your capacity to meet the repayments based on your income.
  2. For 100% finance you need to prove that you have 'tangible' net worth, i.e. equity in property or investments. Our financiers do not want a mortgage, but will simply want to feel comfortable that you have the ability to make good any shortfall between the second hand value of the boat and the amount owed.
  3. A good credit history.
  4. Stable employment and income.
