Aviation and Marine
Perfect for businesses and individuals looking for:
We are an experienced and respected provider of flexible finance for business and general aviation and a wide range of leisure and commercial vessels. We are a specialist division of Close Brothers, a leading merchant banking group.
With a combined track record spanning more than 50 years, our dedicated Aviation and Marine team have a wealth of experience in financing new and pre-owned aircraft, commercial vessels and leisure boats.
We are passionate about what we do and our customers value our long term experience as well as our personal, consistent approach throughout the business cycle.
We can finance brand new aircraft direct from the manufacturer, or pre-owned aircraft being sold by dealers, brokers or via private sale. We can also consider refinancing aircraft that are already owned, to release capital for overhauls, upgrades, rebuilds or other purposes. We can’t, however, finance aircraft operated by major airlines and the armed services
We offer finance for a wide variety of sailing yachts and motorboats, including those that are used for charter. Since entering the marine market, our team has helped customers purchase hundreds of vessels for use in the UK and Europe.
