Default Financing question

How many years can you finance a boat. What do you guys have for number of years and interest rates??? Does price matter?? How about finance $50,000?? How about $80,000??? Never done it so I thought I would ask here..

15 - 20 years depending on the lender, interest rate depends on the lender and type of loan, fixed v. arm v. balloon. Amount really doesn't matter as far as I can tell. Hope this helped

Key Bank is a good bank to deal with. Usually, that's where the brokerage houses place loans. There are some great loan rates and terms out there now. Normally to get 20 years terms, you need to finance around a $100k or more. I do have a source that will do 20 years at $75k and above. Let me know if I can help you.

I have had Key Bank on three of my boat loans, including my current loan. Nothing bad at all to say about them.

I also did a re-fi through Essex Credit on one boat. Smooooooth and easy to deal with. Had the deal done in 4 hours. I think they can find financing on new boats, too. Call Jodi Brandon with Essex Credit at 866-377-3948, ext 7201. She is in Newport Beach so it be west coast time. See what she can do for you
Boy how quickly they forget their friends

Right now we have as low as 5.50 on loans over $70K up to 20 years. All depends on credit, down payment and so on...and we sell to the same people as Essex. BTW I used Jodi when I financed the Pantera and she did a great job. If she was here at LOTO I would offer her a job. After that I got us involved in the long term boat loan business and would be glad to talk to anyone about it.

Just drop me a PM or an e-mail or call me at 573-348-2761 x 2471..Mike Alford
