Boat shows, and dealership open houses are in full swing. That means it's time to start thinking about your options for purchasing a boat so you can be out on the water!

"Any time is a good time to start looking for a boat," said Chrystal Petersen, AVP, Marine Finance Specialist.

Chrystal has spent 12 years of her two-decade banking career working in boat lending and shared her tips for applying for a marine loan from Croghan.

The process of applying for a boat as a business owner is similar to any other individual. You'll begin with a phone or in-person consultation to discuss the specifics of the vessel and potential loan opportunities.

Boat LendingHere's some information you'll need to provide:

  • Purchase agreement with the make and model of the vessel
  • Cost of the vessel and how much you'll put down
  • Personal and business tax returns from the last two years and a business debt schedule if self-employed

Chrystal said working with Croghan to finance a marine purchase provides each customer with personalized service and easy access to essential information.

"Here at Croghan, we look at potential boat owners a little differently, making loan decisions based on individual characteristics and unique circumstances." Said Chrystal
