Leasing or nautical credit?

The nautical leasing is a rental contract where the owner of the boat is the finance company/institution. At the end of the contract there is a purchase option that is normally executed and thus the ownership passes to the owner. It is reserved for new or used boats with few years.

The nautical credit is a loan destined to the purchase of a boat. The owner of the boat is the borrower or owner from the first moment.

Other frequently asked questions:

Fixed or variable rates?


These are long-term operations and we always recommend contracting a fixed interest rate to avoid surprises on the monthly payment and to determine the total cost of the operation from the beginning.

Can I cancel the leasing and transfer the boat to my name before the expiration date?

Yes, you can!

After one year of the contract has elapsed, you can cancel the contract early and arrange the transfer of ownership. In the contracts it is established which is the cancellation cost in each month of the contract.

Is it mandatory to get an insurance policy with the finance company?

No, it鈥檚 not!

It is necessary to prove that you have boat insurance for the amount of the boat, but it is not mandatory to take out insurance with the finance company.

It is also not compulsory to contract a life insurance where the finance company is the beneficiary.

Can it be partially cancelled?


After a year of contract it is possible to cancel partially both in leasing and in credit. It has a low cancellation cost on the outstanding amount to be amortized.
