Understanding the Types of Boat Loans Available

At, powered by Intercoastal Financial Group, we help customers navigate the many financing options available, and have access to the most competitive programs on the market. Over 30+ years, we have built a reputation as the industry leader in delivering the best and most unique types of boat and RV loans in the market.

Here are the various boat loan options we offer:

  1. Secured Loan: This is a loan that is secured by the boat you are purchasing whether it is from a private individual, dealership, or broker. Secured loans typically have the best interest rates and more flexible terms than unsecured loans.
  2. Business/LLC & Trusts: Personal guarantors are required with loans including a business, limited liability corporation (LLC), or irrevocable trust. All parties guaranteeing the loan are required to be in the entity. Your loan agent can assist you with documents needed to process a loan application with select lenders accepting these types of loans.
  3. Construction Loan: We are one of the only companies to offer this loan option! Construction loans are available if you have ordered a vessel and want to finance through the phases of the building process, instead of paying cash. Payment (or draws) are managed directly with you and the manufacturer based on your contract. Contact one of our loan agents to determine if your manufacturer qualifies and obtain additional information.
  4. Canadian Citizens: We can process loans for Canadian citizens that may or may not have a residence in the US. Obtaining a boat loan has never been easier when working with one of our loan agents.

Every client is unique as well as their financial situation. Our agents will review all aspects of your application and place your loan with the right lender. It is our commitment to outstanding service and our industry expertise that will make your boat loan financing experience memorable.

It’s time to get out on the water. Submit your loan application today!
