Pre-Approved Boat Loan FAQs

Answers to some of the most common pre-approved boat loan questions that we are asked.

How Long Does Pre-Approval Last?

When you arrange a pre-approved boat loan at Aussie Boat Loans we can maintain and hold the approval for 31 days. If you don’t manage to find the boat or vessel you’re after in that time, just call your Aussie Boat Loans consultant and we can extend your pre-approval.

Does Getting Pre-Approved Hurt Your Credit?

Getting pre-approved will only affect your credit adversely if you are making multiple applications for pre-approval with a variety of different lenders.

Each pre-approval application will be registered at an enquiry on your credit file. Lenders generally don't look favourably on multiple enquiries on your credit file in a 6-month period.

If you get pre-approved with Aussie Boat Loans and your pre-approval expires, it's important to have us extend it if you're still looking and not seek pre-approval elsewhere.

Can A Pre-Approved Boat Loan Be Denied?

Yes, even if you have pre-approval your boat loan could be denied if the information you gave us initially can't be substantiated, is incomplete or inaccurate. If you give us accurate and complete details and provide us with all the required documentation, you can be confident that your boat loan will most probably be approved.

How Does A Boat Loan Pre-Approval Work?

To arrange pre-approval, you will have to submit an application. If succesful, we will agree to provide you with boat finance and there many be certain conditions that need to be met.

For example, the boat that you are looking to purchase may need to be equal to or higher than a certain value.

Once you have found your desired vessel, we will liaise with the seller or boat dealer to arrange the transfer of funds.
