Ways to shop for your boat

Get pre-qualified

Finance at the dealership

TDECU financing is available directly at hundreds of dealerships in the communities that we serve. When you find the boat you want, tell the dealer you want your loan from TDECU, complete the paperwork at the dealership, and in no time your loan is approved and the boat is yours to take home.

Here's what you'll need to provide us to get started:

  • Employment, income, and housing information.
  • Amount you would like to finance (purchase price, taxes, title, license, and warranties, less any downpayment).
  • Length of the loan, also known as the term of the loan.
  • If you are trading in a boat we will need the title, loan, registration and license information.

Boat Loan FAQ

How can being pre-qualified help me when I am shopping for a boat?

When you are pre-qualified for a boat loan, you can focus on negotiating the best price when visiting the dealership. This allows you to shop with confidence, knowing you won't end up with high rate financing. Dealers tend to take people with pre-approved financing more seriously because it means you're actively looking for a vehicle ready to do business.

Can I be approved for a boat loan and have funds available the same day?

In many cases, you may be approved and funds made available the same day.  Our team will answer your questions and help expedite the boat loan application and approval process.

Can I make additional payments and pay off my loan earlier than the original term?

Yes. At TDECU, there are no prepayment penalties for paying off your loan earlier than your original term. In fact, it’s a great way to save on interest over the long run!
