Can I Get Finance?


Purchasing a narrowboat is a large investment and depending on your circumstances and budget, financing this purchase can be under taken in a variety of different ways.

A marine mortgage is just one of those ways.

There is half a dozen or so finance companies now offering flexible boat financing options on narrowboats. You’ll be able to spread the cost of your new purchase into manageable monthly repayments over a period of up to ten years.

But most do ask for a sizeable deposit, typically 20% of the value.

Beware, some will only offer finance if you are a leisure boater and not as residential boater.

Of course, this also depends on your personal circumstances.
