Loan Against My Boat

Pawn my boat? What does that mean and how can it help you?

Pawning your boat is a very simple and cost effective way to get cash with your boat as security, without having to sell it. This can also be seen as a “Lend and Park” solution.

Pawning something you own is a practise that goes back hundreds of years and is the simplest way to gain access to the cash locked up in your movable asset.

At First Advance, they are committed to providing you with the simplest, most cost-effective, and quickest means possible to lend and park or pawn your boat.

The option to pawn your boat is significantly more affordable than the option to “Lend and Drive” or “Pawn your car and still drive it”, which is another way in which First Advance help people with cash.

Getting a loan against your boat this way will bring about a saving of around half the price!!

Additionally, in order to be eligible for a loan through the company, they also do not demand nearly as much proof as what is required in the case of a Lend and Drive transaction.

This means in effect that the Pawn option may grant a customer even larger amounts in loans.
