Boat Finance

Sailing yacht at sea in full sailMarinablu International Ltd is run from the UK, and was started by us, almost by accident, and indeed started life in berth finance, not boat finance. We initially went to Spain for a long term break from corporate life, to recharge our batteries, and to invest in property in Spain, whilst having a break. Within a short time we discovered that boat berths, were not only in short supply, but had increased dramatically in value over the last ten years. We assumed, that we would be able to finance the purchase using the berth as the asset and using a Spanish bank. We were subsequently told that this was impossible, and having been set the challenge we decided to find a lender.

It took some time but we found a bank would was prepared to advance against the berth itself. This set us wondering, whether other owners would be interested in this facility, and hence Marinablu was born! That was 4 years ago, and since then we have added several other specialist financial services for boat owners, both in the UK and Europe, and are now one of the largest boat finance brokers in the UK.

David On John's BoatThis is us, David and Anna, enjoying aAnna on John's boat in Spain wonderful day out aboard John's boat Abracadabra in Spain last year. John is MD of Genus Marine, the largest berth broker in the UK and Europe. If you are looking for a berth  and finance, speak to John who is an expert on Spain and Europe. He currently has berths in many of the marinas on the Costa del Sol, and also works on the French and Italian Riviera. Having bought and sold berths in Europe for over 20 years, there is very little he doesn't know about the market, the value of berths, or the best marinas for your yacht. So please do get in touch as I'm sure he will be able to help you with your search.

Boat Financing - Our Services

From our small beginnings, we have since developed our marine finance services to include Italian and French boat finance solutions, marine finance for both the UK and European clients, yacht insurance and currency services. We are constantly adding new boat finance companies and services to our portfolio as the markets develop, so if you have found something which you feel might be of interest, please do drop us a line.

Boat Loans - Our Business Philosophy

Our philosophy in business is very simple. We will always try to respond to your enquiries as quickly as possible, generally within a few hours or the same day at the latest. Please remember we are not tax experts, and can only give guidance. If you do need specialist advice please consult an expert.

We will always try to get your boat loan quote to you as quickly as possible, and for marine finance, this is generally either the same day, or at latest next day. Yacht leasing quotes can take a little longer, for two reasons. Firstly we are dealing with Europe, where life moves more slowly, and secondly the quotes are a little more complicated and take time to prepare - so please bear with us.

Boat Finance Calculator - Our Charges

As a broker, we do not charge for any of our services - they are all provided free of charge. We are paid an introducing commission by the boat finance companies or bank, and as such, this costs you no more than dealing with them on a direct basis. The benefit to you is that for one email to us, we will then make all the enquires for you, and give you a variety of quotes to choose from, saving you a considerable amount of time.

As you will see we are regulated by the Office of Fair Trading.

Financing Boats - And Finally......

A big thank you to all the clients who have supported us over the first few years. We are introducing a photo gallery of clients and their boats, so if you have any pictures, are about to buy a boat, or are a boat dealer, we would be delighted to hear from you, so we can add them to the gallery.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard as one of our boat financing clients soon!
