Marine Finance

More and more boats are sold on finance as people take the opportunity to buy a larger/newer boat without using up capital.



We recommend Lombard Marine as our preferred finance company. This is due to favourable rates and an easy application system.


Typical terms:

  • The term over which you borrow funding must be between 12 - 168 months (1 - 14 years), depending on the amount borrowed
  • The minimum amount you can borrow is £25,000
  • The maximum amount you can borrow is 70% of the value of the vessel
  • All vessels must be no older than 30 years old at the start of your agreement
  • All vessels must be no older than 40 years old by the end of the term
