Ausail Marine Group has been using Finlease to provide finance for over 25 years for both purchasers of private vessels and charter vessels.  We have found their commitment to customer service and ability to organise hassle free finance solutions for our customers to be invaluable to our business.

Whether you’re after a new or used boat, or looking to upgrade an existing boat, Finlease makes the whole finance process easy. 

Finlease has the buying power, knowledge & relationships to offer you a tailored finance solution now and into the future offering: 

• Up to 100% funding is available (TAP)*
• Terms can be up to 5 years with up to a 40% Balloon (which can be refinanced for a 2nd period) 
• In most cases no real-estate security. 

Here’s a helpful checklist on what lenders will be looking for when you’re applying for boat finance:


Your capacity to meet the repayments based on your income.

A good credit history.

Stable employment and income

For 100% finance you need to prove that you have ‘tangible’ net worth, i.e. equity in property or investments. Our financiers do not want a mortgage, but will simply want to feel comfortable that you have the ability to make good any shortfall between the second hand value of the boat and the amount owed.


Charter boat finance lets you mix business with pleasure and no one understands charter boat finance like Finlease.
