Boat Financing Frequently Ask Questions:

How do I finance a boat?
Once you’ve found the right boat or yacht, determine how much you’re comfortable spending on a monthly payment. You should consider additional costs such as insurance, maintenance, storage, and fuel. Research different lenders and compare rates, terms, and fees. Look for lenders who specialize in boat financing.
What credit score do I need to finance a boat?
Your credit score will affect your eligibility for a loan and the interest rate you are offered. Check your credit score before applying for a loan and work to improve it if necessary. Your lender can also help determine your eligibility.
Should I finance a boat or pay cash?
The decision to pay cash or finance a boat depends on your financial situation and goals. Financing a boat allows you to manage your cash flow, build credit, take advantage of low-interest rates, and purchase a larger or more expensive boat than you could afford to pay for in cash upfront.
How long can I finance a boat?
Although boat loan amounts may vary, many lenders' payments can stretch up to 20 years.
Can I finance a used boat?
Yes, many lenders including SkipperBud’s offer loan options for new and used boats
Can I finance a boat from a private seller?
Yes, SkipperBud’s offers financing options for boats purchased through a private seller. Contact our team to learn more.
