Boat Loans by Sterling Acceptance
Sterling Acceptance was formed in 1987 by avid boaters as well as banking experts. We have assembled a staff of boat loan experts over the years specializing in marine lending, loan underwriting, US Coast Guard Documentation, and yacht insurance. Underwriting is a true specialty of ours, as our underwriters each have 25 to 35 years of experience. With this, the response turn-around time is exceptional. None of our competitors can offer the combination of banking credentials, industry knowledge and experience that you will find dealing with our team at Sterling Acceptance Corporation!
We offer a wide variety of loan programs at competitive rates and terms. We will act as your intermediary to get you the best rate possible with a range of financial institutions we have established relationships with. We also offer US Coast Guard Documentation work, State Titling services, and Yacht Insurance, all done in-house at our corporate headquarters. These services are available to you whether you wish to finance your boat purchase through Sterling Acceptance, or are paying cash for the boat.
We are proud to offer services on a nationwide level. We have staff members across the United States that are ready to assist you. Please contact us to help you in your next Yacht or RV purchase!
If you are ready to apply, or would like to request a rate quote, please do so via the Applications tab! It will come directly to the owner’s e-mail, which is safe and secure, and you will get a response back within one business day.
Whether crusing the Chesapeake on board the “Sterling Lady” with our Golden Retrievers or sailing in the crystal
clear waters of the Islands, the owners of Sterling Acceptance enjoy the boating life style.

once again for the quick response and excellent service on our boat
financing. As you know we went to a competitor first and terminated
the arrangement after their interest rate “bait and switch”
technique. This waste of time on my part made your quick response
even more critical. Everyone we dealt with from the initial phone
call to the final closing was friendly, professional and efficient.
As I said at the closing, we will most definitely be back when it
is time to move up. Thanks Again."~ John P.
cannot say enough about the service and attention we received from
Sterling Acceptance Corp. on the purchase of our 1999 Cruisers 3750
Motor Yacht. After looking for a used boat to fit our needs, we
finally found the perfect boat that the whole family agreed upon.
Lauren not only helped us with a very low interest rate, she helped
us find a reputable surveyor, arranged for and acquired a competitive
insurance quote, and worked and made arrangements with our broker.
She even drove over an hour from her office to meet with us to sign
documents so that we could settle before the 4th of July. We took
delivery of our boat July 2nd, and had a perfect 4th of July holiday

have just recently bought a new (and larger) vessel. My last boat
I financed through Sterling. It was a very good experience. They
were knowledgeable and helpful at every turn. This time was going
to be more complicated. I bought the boat in Canada and had to register
it in the United States. It was not a job for rookies. Once again,
the folks at Sterling made this complicated transaction a simple
and pleasant experience. I particularly want to thank Lauren who
was always a gentle and reassuring voice on the other end of the
~ Dr. Fran M.
Acceptance has made all our boat loans easy and pleasant
experiences. We have purchased three Post boats since 1997-2004 and
Sterling has always been a pleasure to deal with and always makes
us feel like family."
want to thank you and your staff for making the acquisition of the
boat a breeze!! Your staff members are all professionals and customer
care is obviously #1 with you. Please pass on my thanks to them
