A £700K Yacht purchase deal completed in just 2 weeks

A boutique, family-owned hotel nestled in the heart of the Cumbrian National Park, was looking to expand its offering to their more discerning clientele with the purchase of a luxury sailing catamaran. 

Once purchased, the hotel would be able to add to their wedding package, inviting newlyweds with the opportunity of honeymooning off the coast of the Balearic Islands.

A speedy purchase was required to secure the services of one of Europe’s more notable big-boat delivery firms.

Our Finance Specialist Paul Newton comments on this deal:-

"Whilst we can source the best rates for our clients, and the most appropriate lenders based on cost and fees, experience in this particular area has taught us that approaching the ‘right’ provider can often be the difference between success and spectacular failure! It was imperative that we were able to work with a lender who understood our clients pressing needs and requirements, and a lender we could rely on."

"We were able to secure an offer for our clients, within the extremely tight timescales, and monies were released well before the contracted deadline. Their yacht has now been delivered, setting sail from it’s original mooring in Greece, successfully navigating the Mediterranean sea, and is currently sitting in dry-dock undergoing a mini refurb ahead of the 2022 wedding season."

"I was extremely proud to be part of this process, and wish our clients the very best of luck with their new venture."
