- Collateral security. You need to evaluate what security the lending institution attaches to your loan.
- Payment duration. The payment duration of the loan should not be too short or too long. Short duration does not give you enough time to fully clear your facility. Likewise long duration may make you to pay a lot of interest and the payment of the facility may fatigue you.
- Other charges on the facility. Charges that are one-off like insurance and processing fee must be taken into consideration. These charges should not be unreasonably too high.
- Interest rates. The interest charged on the boat facility must be affordable to the client. This is because exorbitant rates may overwhelm the client and negatively affect their business.
Flexible terms and conditions. The terms and conditions should be friendly to the client. For instance, if the monthly payments are huge for the client, the institution should allow the customer to slightly reduce the payment and extend the duration.
