Marine and Boat Loans

There’s really only one reason to buy a boat: fun on the open water. With your new boat you’ll soon be cruising rivers, lakes or oceans, sharing good times with family and friends. So why let worries over the financing of your boat detract from the experience? SunTrust helps make boat ownership easy with a variety of financing options that save you money and time.

Marine or Boat Loan?
Find the loan that’s right for you.

For borrowers who are seeking less than $50,000 and are buying a boat under 25 feet that cannot be documented, a boat loan is the right option. To learn more about our boat loans, please call us at 800.279.4824.

SunTrust’s marine loans are designed for borrowers seeking $25,000 or more in financing and are purchasing a boat longer than 25 feet, which can be documented by the U.S. Coast Guard. Our marine loans offer fixed and adjustable rates and are secured by your purchase of a new or used boat. You’ll receive the same interest rate whether you buy new or used—and you can even refinance an earlier purchase.

SunTrust is a member of the National Marine Bankers Association.
You pay no points, service charges or fees for a SunTrust marine loan. The U.S. Coast Guard, however, charges documentation and lien recordation fees. Many SunTrust clients choose to have us do the filing for them because of the complexity.

We provide the Coast Guard filing service for $50 for refinances, which can cost up to $300 elsewhere.
We provide the Coast Guard filing service for $200 for purchases, which can cost up to $775 elsewhere.
