Boat accessories are very important in terms of being an additive to the base value. Accessories mentioned here is not only restricted to factory accessories but include downrigger, tow bars, music systems etc. Even if an accessory actually appears trivial to you, you should note down. If you don’t do this the bank will make its own calculations and mostly, arrive at a figure which is way less than the asking price. This basically means that you will get a loan with a reduced value.
Do some market research
It’s your money and your asset so you should be the one who is responsible for getting the best deal possible. In case of a vehicle loan, research the Internet with the exact model number and find out the true market value and user review of the boat. The model number1664VST means that the boat‘s length is 16 feet and 16 inches and it has a V shaped hull and tunnel. Learn to read and understand model numbers.
Make the offer
The offer you will make to the seller of the boat should be around the loan value+ your affordable amount. If the seller doesn’t agree to be within 5% of your quoted value then move on to another seller. Do not overspend and exceed your budget.
Choosing the financing institution
Many banks provide boat loans so you can shortlist at least 2-3 different banks. Much information can be gathered from boating magazines. You can also look for financial service providers which have strong relationships with local and national leaders. Boating publications contain a lot of extensive information about credit unions and financial service companies who provide boat loans.
