If you’re dreaming of setting sail on the open water or looking to upgrade your current boat, a personal loan with security for boats might be the perfect solution for you. We understand that owning a boat is more than just a hobby; it’s a lifestyle.

Our boat-secured personal loans offer a flexible and affordable way to make your maritime dreams a reality.

With our boat-secured personal loans, you can use your beloved watercraft as collateral to access the funds you need. This allows us to offer competitive interest rates and more favorable terms, making it a smart and cost-effective choice for financing your boat-related needs. Whether you’re looking to purchase a new boat, refurbish your current one, or simply need some extra cash for other expenses, our boat-secured personal loans provide the financial support you require.

Personal boat loans using security, often referred to as secured boat loans, are a type of financing that allows individuals to purchase or refinance a boat by using the boat itself as collateral for the loan.

In this type of loan, the boat serves as a security asset, which reduces the risk for the lender.


About Personal Loans Using Security

A personal loan with security, also known as a secured personal loan, is a type of loan where you provide collateral, such as a valuable asset (e.g., a car, boat, caravan, or motorbike), to secure the loan. This collateral reduces the lender’s risk and typically results in more favorable loan terms.

Various assets can be used as collateral, including real estate, vehicles, investment accounts, jewelry, and other high-value items. The specific assets that can be used may depend on the lender’s policies.

Secured personal loans often come with lower interest rates, higher loan amounts, and more flexible repayment terms compared to unsecured personal loans. They are a good option for borrowers with valuable assets who want to access favorable loan terms.

The primary risk is that if you fail to make the loan payments as agreed, the lender has the legal right to take possession of the collateral. For example, if you use your car as collateral and default on the loan, the lender could repossess the vehicle.

The loan amount is loosely based on the value of the collateral you provide. Lenders typically offer a loan amount that is a percentage of the asset’s appraised value.

In most cases, you can continue to use the collateral while it secures the loan. For example, if you use your car as collateral, you can still drive it. However, if you default on the loan, the lender may take possession of the collateral.

Yes, you can finance both new and used boats with secured boat loans. However, interest rates and terms may vary for used boats.

While credit score requirements can vary among lenders, having a good credit score may improve your chances of getting approved and obtaining more favorable loan terms. However, the collateral you provide plays a significant role in the approval process.

The application process typically involves providing information about the collateral, your financial situation, and your credit history. The lender will evaluate your application and may conduct a valuation of the collateral to determine the loan terms.

Unlike some commercial loans, secured personal loans generally do not offer tax benefits, as the interest paid on these loans is typically not tax-deductible. You should consult with a tax professional for specific advice related to your situation.

Lower Interest Rates:

Secured boat loans typically come with lower interest rates compared to unsecured loans because the boat serves as collateral. This can lead to significant cost savings over the life of the loan.

Higher Loan Amounts:

Lenders are often more willing to provide larger loan amounts with longer terms for secured loans, allowing you to finance the boat of your dreams without straining your budget.

Extended Loan Terms: Secured boat loans typically offer longer loan terms, which can result in lower monthly payments, making the purchase more affordable.

Easier Approval: Secured loans are generally easier to qualify for, even if you have less-than-perfect credit, because the collateral reduces the lender’s risk.


Risk of Asset Loss: The primary downside of secured loans is that your boat serves as collateral. If you default on the loan, the lender has the right to repossess the boat, potentially leading to a significant loss.


Boats, like cars, tend to depreciate in value over time. If you finance a boat for an extended period, you may end up owing more than the boat’s current value.

Reduced Financial Flexibility:

Using your boat as collateral ties it up in the loan, limiting your ability to sell it or make other transactions until the loan is fully paid off.

Additional Costs:

Secured boat loans may involve additional costs, such as insurance requirements to protect the lender’s collateral interest. These expenses should be factored into your budget.

I cannot recommend Christine from iCredit highly enough. I had been dealing with another broker who had done nothing but talk for 2 weeks before I called her. It was a complicated loan because of self-employment and the fact I had borrowed nothing from anyone in 12 years. Christine was onto it asap and got it all done within a week. Everyone happy; No tears.
