Boat Loan Company

Trident Funding is the largest, independently owned domestic boat loan origination company in the U.S.!

Trident Funding was founded in 1996 by James Foley, Robert Dunford and Michael Bryant. Together, with more than a hundred years of combined boat loan experience, these three seasoned professionals set out to create an organization dedicated to helping boating enthusiasts find the financing needed to pursue their passion.

Today, Trident Funding has offices in major boating regions across the United States, and is a trusted name in the boat loan community. Since its inception, Trident has worked with more than 40 banks and financial institutions. Having the ability to attract a large number of lending sources will insure that you will have the opportunity to obtain the best rates and terms available when purchasing your “dream boat.”

Through good economic times as well as downturns, Trident Funding has maintained its stability, financial strength and excellent reputation. We have worked very hard to earn our credibility and maintain that level of respect through hard work, integrity and our ability to represent our customers fairly and objectively to a prospective lender.

When you contact a representative from Trident Funding to obtain a boat loan, your loan requests will be handled in that office by a professional — not in a landlocked central clearinghouse full of cubicles and computers. Rest assured that with Trident Funding, no one else is better equipped to represent you to potential boat lenders. To us, each client is a fellow boat lover, not a faceless account number.

We wanted to thank you for being so great. We hit a lot of walls in purchasing a new boat, but you made it a lot easier, and we thank you and your staff. If you are ever in the Baltimore area please give us a call, we would love to take you for a sail

“I’ve finally had time to slow down from work and boating to say “Thank You” for your very professional and expedient services, regarding the financing of my Sea Ray. You and your team were very impressive right from the start, and finished the finance package on time and with very little effort on my part. I will certainly pass on your name to anyone I hear looking for boat financing.”
