Re: Financing

Further Update: First Bristol 40 did not pan out so I continued to look until I found a beautiful Sailmaster 45 designed by Sparkman and Stephens. We came to a price and survey looks good. We will sign this week.

Re: Financing

Congrats prebleboy, That's a stunning boat! Need more pics

I used USAA as well. It took 2 minutes to approve and they could care less if you lived aboard. I had other banks say no way. It was almost scary!
You didn't happen to check pentagon federal did you?

RRRR... I'm in the market having lost my Tartan 37C to Sandy and set my eye on Marage, sent and email to SS and was hoping to have a look this weekend! Absolutely beautiful. Good luck with her!

Re: Financing

Here is Liberty, formerly Marage before we set off for Newport, RI last weekend. Sorry to take her from you Veracity, but she has the best lines I've ever seen in fiberglass so I could not let her go. There are some nice Bristol 40s for sale in Mattapoisette, MA on Yachtworld.

Unfortunately her engine, which started fine for the sea trials, did not start so we made the dinghy up to power. My father, uncle and I worked together to pull her in at the Navy marina in Newport beautifully.

We averaged 8.5kts on the 103nm sail, broad reaching most of the way! At one point we hit 10kts if you can believe it! I've never sailed that fast on a CCA boat.

Now to fix/replace the starter motor on this unknown Westerbeke 53hp.

Re: Financing

She is certainly lovely, Prebleboy. I was actually interested in something a bit roomier but I don't think I'd be able to resist her. I looked at the listing and thought I'd be happy just sitting and eyeing her on her mooring. Stunning. Anyway contracted yesterday for a Niagara 42 - more of a truck to your new jaguar but I think she'll work out for the kind of cruising we do. Maybe catch up with you in Newport or Block I or Nantucket or .... this season.

Re: Financing

Congrats -- on both the vessel and on joining the long line of satisfied USAA boat financing customers. They were terrific when I bought mine 3 years ago; pretty much the definition of no hassle financing. And while they wouldn't refi me this year without a fresh survey (NADA guide value was bizarrely low for my boat and, unfortuantely, it's the only secondary source they allow), they were able to able to knock my rate down by 3/4 over the phone. Unquestionably the best.
