Answers to Used Boat finance FAQs

Used boats can attract different loan conditions from new boats. In this section we’re providing straight forward and simple answers to some of the questions you may still have regarding sourcing a loan for a used boat. Keep in mind that every Jade Boat Loan is handled individually, both in terms of the loan application and the boat being purchased. So please reach out to us with the specifics around your boat loan application for individual responses.

Can I get a loan on a used boat?   

Most used watercraft in good condition and age will be eligible for a secured used boat loan. This applies to both power and sail boats which are purchased from a marine yard, dealer, at an auction or through a private seller. Individual lenders will have guidelines around accepting older boats and marine vessels in less than good condition as security against a secured watercraft loan. Where a lender will not accept a used marine as security for a loan, there could be available a unsecured personal loan for the purposes of purchasing a watercraft.

Is the interest rate different for new and used boats?   

With some lenders, yes it can differ. While the interest rate loans generally covers all types of boats whether new or used, the specific loan offer we source for customers is dependent on individual lender requirements. Some will apply a higher interest rate for second hand boats. The interest rate that you will offered by individual lenders is determined on the risk assessment of your individual loan application and the age and condition of the watercraft. The interest rate will differ between Secured marine Loans and Unsecured Loans as no security is available for unsecured loans.

Is there a limit to the age of boats for used boat loans?   

Some lenders will have guidelines around the age of boats they will offer loans against. This varies from lender to lender. The average is approximately 10 years old whilst some non bank lenders will lend on boats older than 20 years old.

Can I get a loan for a boat I want to restore or is damaged?   

Loans for restoration boats on older, collectible or damaged boats will be subject to individual lender requirements. If the watercraft is deemed not acceptable as security against the loan for a Secured Marine Loan, then you may choose to apply for an Unsecured Personal Loan. With unsecured loans no security is offered so the condition of the watercraft is not taken into consideration. 

Can I get my loan approved before I choose/commit to a boat?   

Yes. Pre-approved loans are available through Jade and in many cases can provide significant benefits.


The process is the same as applying for a loan except it is done based on an estimate of what you think the watercraft might cost. When you finalise the marine goods sale the loan is finalised based on the exact amount of the loan.


Having your loan pre-approved can be a good bargaining tool when negotiating price with a private seller especially. They will know you are in a position to make a quick purchase. If you are buying at auction, a pre-approved loan may be extremely important.
