Financing majr re-fit.

I have a 33'' X-Yacht (X-102Mk II)from 1985, the original note is almost paid off. Have anyone been able to find a lender which provides for financing for major re-fits ($10K and up).

Thanks in advance.

I financed my boat through Trident Marine in Annapolis, Md. I was able to provide a breakdown of my costs to bring my boat up to standards and a letter from a marine surveyor indicating that the improved value of the boat would equal what I had in it. I believe that the value used to to determine the percentage of loan to value, which in turn was used to determine the loan rate, was based on that higher value. I am not sure that will help you but you should be able to refinance the boat, paying off your original loan and enough to do the refit.

Do you have equity in a home? Almost everything we buy is on our home equity loan. It provides some tax deduction and the rates are low. We just refinanced from prime +3% to prime +0%, currently that is 4%. I bought my boat and all the refitting($15k so far) that way. Caution is advised obviously, don''t go overboard.
