Interest Rates of Boat Loans

Australians’ fascination with boats has encouraged lenders to offer different types of loans; all with their individual pros and cons and options. That is why it is absolutely imperative that you compare as many lenders as possible before deciding from whom to borrow. The internet is the best place for this as all top-notch lenders have an online calculator on their website which can be used to search for the cheapest boat loan without compromising on your dream. You can also talk to boat brokers about the types of loans available and how to identify the best plan for you.

Boat Loans available in the Market

In Australia, depending on the brand; model and size of the boat you can expect to get loans starting from $20,000 and can go up to $10,000,000 with repayment period ranging between 5years and 25years.

While comparing loans, you can opt for either a secured loan or an unsecured load. A secured loan is where you have to provide collateral i.e. security for the loan which is usually the boat itself. Secured loans usually have a lower rate of interest as compared to unsecured loans but your boat will be owned by the lending company till your repayment is complete.

Unsecured loans do not require any security. This means your boat will be your own right from the very beginning even though you will have to pay more interest for this privilege.

Loans are also categorized as variable and fixed. Variable loans are those whose interest rates vary according to the prevalent market rate as determined by the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia). This means, on some months you will have to pay more interest whereas at other times you will actually be paying less.

Other areas to compare between individual lenders would be minimum/maximum repayment term, minimum/maximum loan amount, rate of interest against a particular model/brand and other terms and conditions.
