It is possible to finance a secondhand boat with a leasing if the boat is still subject to VAT.

Boats subject to VAT and eligible for a leasing contract are those which have been used by or financed by a professional or a company (for example: a finance company).

Nevertheless, even though subject to VAT, a boat may be considered to be too old to be accepted for a leasing contract.

As a result, it is possible that a boat being sold by a private individual, or having belonged to a private individual (even if it is being re-sold by a professional), might not be able to be financed with a leasing.
