TDECU Boat Loan Frequently Asked Questions
How can being pre-qualified help me when shopping for a boat?
When you are pre-approved or have pre-qualification 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.
Can I be approved for a boat loan and have funds available the same day?
In many cases, you may be approved and receive your funds the same day. Our team will answer any of your questions and help expedite the boat loan application and approval process.
How can I check the status of my boat loan application?
You can check the status of your application through our Application Status Center.
Can I make additional payments and pay off my loan earlier than the original loan term?
Yes. At TDECU, there are no prepayment penalties for paying off your loan earlier than your original term. In fact, it is a great way to save on interest over the long run!
Can I refinance my current boat loan with TDECU?
Yes. If you financed your boat loan with another lender and would like to refinance at a lower rate with TDECU, select the Refinance My Boat option when completing the online application. You can also visit your local Member Center, or call us at (800) 839-1154.
