Reasons to Finance Your Watercraft

When deciding whether you should finance a boat or purchase it outright, it is important to know the advantages financing can offer, such as:

  • Getting the boat you want: The ideal boat may be out of reach when having to purchase it outright. You’ll have less to sacrifice when you choose to finance your boat.
  • Keeping your savings: The average price of a new boat is $60,000 to $75,000. Instead of dipping into a savings account, you can keep that money and pay for the boat over time with a loan.
  • Enjoying the water sooner rather than later: Needing to save up enough money to purchase a watercraft in full can take time. Instead of having to wait to enjoy your new toy, you can hit the water quicker when you choose to finance.

Finance your boat or watercraft with us and reap other great benefits, including:

  • Fixed rates: Having fixed rates for your boat loan will let you know how much you will be paying every month.
  • Extended terms: We offer a wide range of loan term lengths, including up to 180 months. This allows you to pay off your loans at a pace that best suits your current financial situation.
