As Australia’s leading marine lending specialist, Jade Boat Loans offers Boat Leasing as an effective finance facility for businesses wanting an off-balance sheet finance option. Boat Lease is a commercial finance facility where the business borrowing the funds has complete use of the boat during the loan term while the lender actually holds ownership. The lender is effectively leasing back the boat to you, the borrower.
When you finalise the monthly payments and the residual, the ownership is transferred to you. With the lender holding ownership, the boat does not appear on your balance sheet as an asset/liability. The monthly payments appear as an operating expense.
Boat Lease is available for the purchase of many types of vessels, both new and second-hand, purchased from a dealer, private seller or at auction. To decide if Boat Lease is the best option for your acquisition, we recommend you consult with your accountant.
