How do boat loans work?
- Recreational vehicle loans are longer term loans; giving you an affordable payment over time. Typical loans are 120 months to 180 months depending on type and amount of the loan. Larger boat loans can be as long as 240 months. The advantage is providing a comfortable payment to enjoy your new toy.
- Waverunner loans range from 36-84 months depending on the financial institution, the buyer’s history and the product being purchased.
- Down payment helps you secure the best rates available. Zero down payment loans are available but even a little down can help you secure a better rate for the life of the loan.
- Approvals are typically faster for credit score range of 675-850. But we work with banks that lend money to all credit scores and situations. We work hard to secure the best loan for you.
- Although credit score is a major factor in determining approvals, the finance institutions look at a variety of factors and history.
- History is important. To secure the best rates, financial institutions typically like to see a minimum 3 years credit history on similar dollar amounts. But we have an amazing network of credit unions that work with you when you have less history.
- If you have had a bankruptcy – no problem. As you have worked hard to rebuild your credit situation, we have banks to support you and get you on the water.
- Qualified co-applicants are perfect for more income showing affordability of the payments to the banks. (It is important that your co-applicant lives in the same household).
For younger buyers and credit builders:
- Building credit is important to securing loans.
- Credit cards are a great to grow your history and show you are responsible to maintain a recreational loan. It is important to remember that you need to keep your debt ratio in order. A key factor to remember to keep your credit usage below 50% of your credit limit on the card. For example: when your credit card limit is $5000 you should keep the usage under $2500 (50% of the limit). Going over 50% can negatively affect your credit score.
- Vehicle loans are a large factor in boat loan approvals as they show your long term history on larger dollar amounts.
- It is vital to make your payments on time and not have late pays.
