Looking to finance a boat and want the best interest rate. We were through Charter One, but they merged and became "too big". It took me 20 minutes and 3 transfers to get a human to answer simple questions.

Sorry if this is a repeat post...
Help?

Thanks!
Christine

Speaking of which, when are you gonna get off your behind and get yours launched?


I'm through National City but only out of convienience (my mortgage is through them) because my Credit Union doesn't do boat loans. I'm not real happy about the customer service there but from what I understand things are bad all over...

Hey Freckles, it's Paul. I just got my new loan through Community Central Bank in downtown Mt Clemens. I worked with a Mr. Marino (sorry, can't remember his first name) and it was a piece of cake. Great interest rate too. Hope to see you, Bill, and the kids out on the lake this summer.

I had mine done thru Tom, with the hustler, he got me 5.9% a few weeks ago. Viscious (sparky) did my survey, and all flowed thru like nothing. PM me if you want to get his # he took care of my house, boat, all that stuff, it's like a one stop shopping place for me.

Boy, where do I start?

The Bad: National City turned me down flat, when I went through the dealer. No questions, no responce, no reason, just NO. (new boat dealers get a kick back from the bank)

The Ugly: Comerica and Standard Federal, I have accounts with them both, I was with Michigan National for almost 20 years. THEY BOTH SUCK, the old addadge applies if you need to borrow money, your too big of a risk, and for a boat, no less!

The Good: CITIZENS STATE BANK, You have to love them, they have an anchor in thier logo!
Walked in, sat down, got the loan. Even called back a week later and asked to raise the amount by $5,000, no problem, I am at about 82% of the sales price with a good rate. Couldn't be happier, I am moving all my accounts there!

OK, I bought a new Chaparral 265 SSI, should be here 2 more weeks.

Sorry to any who may work in banking, Comerica is a good Business bank, nothing personel.
