There's rarely a bad time of year to enjoy Florida's great outdoors. I can’t think of a better way to take advantage of our beautiful sun and sea than aboard a new boat. Whether you’re cruising on the Indian River or offshore fishing for sailfish, Floridians are the envy of many across the great USA. There are, however, some important factors to consider before you stock the cooler, count your life vests and hit the water.
You are going to have thousands of options to choose from when shopping for a boat
, with price points ranging from economical to astronomical. It’s important to know what you can comfortably afford before
you begin your search. Here are just a few things to keep in mind that are just as important as your monthly boat loan payments:
- Initial Down Payment
- Fuel Costs
- Regular Maintenance Costs
- Monthly Insurance Costs
- Transportation to/from the Water
- Docking Fees
While some of those costs will require research on your part, Space Coast Credit Union can quickly assist in determining just how much your monthly boat loan payment will be and/or how much you can spend if you already have a budget in mind. Our Express Services
associates have experience financing all kinds of watercraft and can help you determine your individual needs to provide custom-fit finance options.
You can expect the pre-approval process to take as little as 10 minutes, but rest assured, we will spend all the time needed to answer any questions you may have.
Once you’re pre-approved, it’s as simple as picking out your boat and providing us with a purchase contract. From there, our team of experts can take over.
