Each transaction is different, and understanding the steps and process with each lender is important. Often getting a pre approval is a good idea so that your offer is considered without a finance stipulation. And, it is not “one bank fits all” in recreational lending. Often where you live, the age and type of boat will make the difference in which lender is the best fit. Sterling has many options and will work to get you the lowest rate for your particular transaction.

Insurance – they can direct you to industry professionals for the best rates and most comprehensive coverage available.
Documentation and Titling – they work with local and national agencies to expedite Coast Guard documents, abstracts, preferred ships mortgages, and registration and titling paperwork.
