Promarine Finance to give an introduction to boat finance at BoatLife

Stuart Austin

The Promarine Finance team is excited to be making waves at the first high-profile boating event of the year in February 2022 with a talk on boat finance.

BoatLife, hosted at Birmingham’s NEC, is a new show set to bring together the biggest brands in marine.

As well as exhibiting at the show from 17-19 February 2022, Stuart Austin, founder and MD at Promarine Finance, will be joining interviewer Mark Covell on the sofa at the show to talk all things boat finance.

Join Stuart at the BoatLife Live Stage for ‘An Introduction to Boat Finance’ at 2pm on Friday 17 February.

Stuart will chat to Mark about changes to the marine sector since the 2008 financial crash; provide an overview of the boat finance process, and outline the involvement of the lender.

Stuart, who founded Promarine Finance more than a decade ago, said: “During the pandemic, while people were unable to travel abroad, exploring the UK’s waters became a popular alternative.

“A lot has changed over the past few years, with several lenders exiting the market, liveaboard vessels growing in popularity, and boats appreciating in value for the first time.

“In our experience, boat ownership has been rapidly growing in popularity, and we want to help more people realise their dreams of buying a boat of their own.”

After the talk, there will be a chance to ask any questions you have about the boat finance industry or securing a marine mortgage of your own.

Stuart added: “Marine finance is an affordable way to get out on the water, whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned boater. And more importantly, it helps buyers do so in a cost-effective and easily manageable way. We want to educate boat lovers on the options they have.”

You can find Promarine Finance at stand G60 from 17-19 February at The NEC, Birmingham.
