Promarine’s Easter Update

As we spring into the warmer months, it’s time for a well-deserved break over Easter to recharge and rejuvenate from a bustling 2024 thus far. 

This year has ushered in more flexibility in negotiating boat prices, with sellers displaying a pragmatic approach towards offers.

Despite the complexities of the inland waterways scene, it’s evident that living aboard remains the preferred residential choice for many of our customers.

For those eyeing the purchase of a live-aboard vessel, here are some top tips:

  • Ensure the boat comes with proper title paperwork, affirming the vendor’s legal right to sell and facilitating future transactions.
  • Consider leveraging the expertise of a broker who can aid in obtaining essential paperwork.
  • Check how long you can be on board at your planned mooring, not all allow liveaboards
  • Always get a full out of water survey from an accredited surveyor eg YDSA or IIMS
  • Confirm the RCD/RCR status of the vessel 

For both inland and ocean going boats, we’re offering stage payments for new builds across the UK and Europe— a facility which is not commonly available.

Additionally, our bridging and short-term finance options, coupled with a no-penalty early settlement feature, are just a couple of ways that we aim to have a personalised approach to best suit the unique needs of our customers.

Everyone here at Promarine Finance is wishing you a happy Easter, please note that our team will be on a break from Good Friday to Easter Monday.
