The boat loan that suits you

We help you apply for a boat loan or financing certificate for a new or used boat. There are two different boat registers which also affect your loan terms, and you get the best loan terms for boats registered in the Norwegian Ordinary Ship Register (NOR). However, there is a requirement for 20% equity when buying a boat registered in the small boat register/a boat that is not registered in NOR.

Checklist before you buy a boat

  • Avoid impulse purchases, find a boat that suits you
    • Do a needs analysis. Do you need a family boat, do you need berths, or does a bowrider with space for water skis suit you better?
  • Send us an application for a loan certificate
    • Fill in the form below
  • Size – Are you an experienced or novice boater?
    • If you are inexperienced you should choose a smaller boat, but not too small. Choose a boat that you master, but with which you can grow.
  • Small enough for storage on a trailer, or do you need boat space?
    • If you live in or near a city, you should join a local boat association and apply for a place.
  • Petrol or diesel?
    • Diesel is cheaper to consume. Petrol engine produces less vibration and is lighter.
  • Inboard or outboard motor?
    • Easier maintenance and cleaning on outboards, often less noise with inboards
  • Check that the boat is CE marked
    • The CE mark is visible proof that the boat meets the requirements laid down by the EU directive in terms of health, environment and safety.
  • Always test drive the boat
    • Then you get confirmation that all equipment, such as engine, heaters, pumps, anchor winch and navigation equipment is as agreed, if the boat is stable.
  • Safer to buy well-known brands
    • Well-known and popular boat types often hold up better in price and can be easier to sell again.
  • Born after 1. January 1980? Then you must have a boat driver’s license
    • We still recommend everyone who buys a boat to take the boat driving test to increase their knowledge of navigation, sea marks and good seamanship!
  • Last ned Forbrukerrådets kjøpekontrakt her
    • This is your security. If you have a watertight contract, you are in a much stronger position in complaints.
  • Take account of unforeseen expenses
    • Remember that unforeseen problems with your boat may arise, it can be smart to have a small buffer for unexpected expenses.

Norwegian Ordinary Ship Register

The Norwegian Ordinary Ship Register (NOR) is a public control body where we can register ship lien bonds that ensure the bank’s legal protection. Boats over seven meters can be registered in NOR, and it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the boat is registered. Purchases of newer boats registered in NOR can also be fully financed.

RS Small Boat Register

The RS Småbåtregisteret is run by Redningsselskapet and is a voluntary register for leisure boats. Insurance companies often require registration of these boats.

Loan type depends on where the boat is registered or is to be registered:
