Shop!, -but don't overlook the specialty lenders. I financed my current boat, when it was twelve years old, through a company that only financed airplanes, yachts and race horses. Some lenders who are very selective may treat you best! Take care and joy, Aythya crew

You asked about Virginia...It's been about 12 years ago, but I was buying a 1971, 37', wood Egg Harbor. Being an older wood boat, not the sort of thing any lenders wanted to bother with, I found Chesapeake Bank (a number of branches in tidewater VA) to be very accommodating with a competitive interest rate.
2 years later, I had an acquaintance who wanted to do the same, also a wood Egg. Not only were they just as accommodating, they loaned my friend enough to not only buy the boat, but to have it re-powered as well.

I've gone with Scott Boat Loans and Essex Before. 20 year amortizations, over $100gk, new boat rates about 1% over prevailing 30year fixed mortgages. My current rate is 5.3% for 20 years fixed...requires 20% down.
