Customer Choice of Secured and Unsecured Sailboat Loans

We offer both secured and unsecured options to ensure we have a solution for all buyers and all vessels. Specifics of the vessel and/or the purchase can determine which is the most suitable form of credit.

Affordable Secured Sailboat Loans

The most widely-used form of consumer credit for major purchases, this product allows for the vessel to be the security for the money borrowed. Especially suited to new vessel purchases and used watercraft in good condition. The condition is assessed by the lender in regard to suitability as security.

  • Fixed cheaper rates
  • Fixed terms up to 7 years
  • Fixed repayments
  • No deposit loans

Flexible Unsecured Loan Options

Where the lender does not accept the vessel as security, buyers can opt for our Personal Unsecured Credit. This may suit older boats, restoration projects and where an amount less than the full purchase price is required.

  • Variable or Fixed Interest Rates
  • Flexible Repayment Schedules 

Sailboat Loans for Buying a Share in a Vessel

Sharing ownership with friends and family can present a very appealing and affordable way to own a watercraft. In these instances, it is often not appropriate for the finance applicant to offer the vessel as the security for their funding commitment.

An Unsecured Personal Credit product can be well-suited for this type of purchase. Speak with us about how we can structure the credit to suit you and your co-owners.

Options to Include Extras in Sailboat Loans

Working with a broker such as Jade offers buyers many benefits including flexibility. Your Jade consultant is negotiating your credit directly with our industry-level lender contacts. That enables us to have greater flexibility than many other lenders and compared with where buyers handle their own credit application.

This flexibility allows our consultants to include many of the accessories required to operate a sailing vessel in the total amount requested. This is subject to the purchase timing and seller of the items.

  • Trailer and sailboat combination loan packages
  • Vessel and sails finance packages.
  • Options to include safety gear and other accessories in the loan.
