Boat loan terms explained
A secured loan is fixed against another asset you already own such as your house, shares or vehicle. It is often the boat you are purchasing for the current loan that is used to secure the loan. This means there is less risk for the broker and you will enjoy greater flexibility in the rate and conditions with your personal boat loan.
An unsecured loan is not fixed against an asset, including the vessel for purchase itself. The boat loan is determined by your personal financial circumstances. You can choose to use cash or savings to obtain a better deal for the loan too. Also, because the loan is not tied to an asset you are free to sell the vessel for good or to upgrade without impacting on the initial loan.
This refers to the total time repayments will need to be made against the loan. The timeframe for your repayments will be based on any deposits, cost of vessel, interest rate and final balloon payment.
A balloon payment is the final payment made in the schedule of your loan. It is usually higher than the weekly or monthly repayments and results in the ownership of the boat being transferred to you completely. The amount of this payment affects the continual repayments as the larger it is the smaller the monthly repayments will be. But you must keep in mind the need to produce the final balloon payment to gain full ownership of the vessel.
