Two new­com­ers to fill boat fi­nanc­ing gap

Canal Boat - - News -

FOL­LOW­ING THE WITH­DRAWAL from the marine sec­tor in July 2015 of former lead­ing provider of leisure boat fi­nance RoyS­cot Larch, two com­pa­nies are step­ping in to fill the void.

In­de­pen­dent niche fi­nance com­pany Ze­bra Fi­nance, whose spe­cial­i­ties in­clude loans for pri­vate health, foot­ball sea­son tick­ets and static car­a­vans, has an­nounced the ex­pan­sion of its Leisure Fi­nance divi­sion into marine fi­nance un­der new Busi­ness Man­ager Brenda Feeney, for­merly of RoyS­cot Larch. Ze­bra’s CEO Pe­ter Fletcher sees his com­pany’s role as “to of­fer cus­tomers easy and flex­i­ble op­tions to spread the cost of higher-priced prod­ucts and ser­vices more con­ve­niently”.

Mean­while, Pe­ga­sus Marine Fi­nance, a new trad­ing op­er­a­tion of the Car Loan Ware­house Lim­ited, has launched what it calls “a fresh ap­proach to boat fi­nance” with op­tions to suit all bud­gets from £5,000 to £250,000 with no de­posit needed and “flex­i­ble fi­nance deals”, promis­ing to trans­fer funds “in record time”.
