Vincent Luzietti and his staff have been excellent. Very courteous, professional and patient. They have been very helpful and simplified what can be a complicated process.
The whole process was very easy. Everything went smoothly and quickly. Highly recommend!
I recently had the opportunity to work with Vinny Luzietti at Trident Funding and my experience working with him was OUTSTANDING.He was super responsive, always available, and extremely helpful.I would never think to look anywhere else for my future boat lending needs as this experience was PERFECT.Dan G.
A big shout out to Vinny Luzietti and his team at Trident Funding. I just (Aug 2023) completed financing my purchase of 40 Winks through Trident and I could not recommend Vinny more highly. From start to finish every phase of the deal was handle quickly and professionally. Vinny is very responsive and knowledgeable which made the whole process surprisingly enjoyable. Thank you for a job well done Vinny. I will use you again.
Vincent is a terrific resource for Marine Funding. He was able to beat all other rates and he made the process simple, quick and painless. He went out of his way to accommodate our needs when we had to alter the dates for the closing. We couldn't have asked for a better partner in making our dreams a reality.
Called and left 3 messages no return call.
Incredible experience with Vincent / super quick follow up / never misses an email or any communication and gets the answers immediately / he is the guy to go to for funding !
Vinnie does an outstanding job. He is timely and detailed oriented. Most importantly he has the sense of urgency to secure approval. It is a pleasure to work with Trident.
Stevn was extremely helpful. He educated us on the process and was focused on our needs first!
Vincent was amazing, quick & easy to work with.Very professional and responsive!! Couldn't have been any easier. Thank you, Vincent you made our dream come true.
Vincent is the very best in the business. He makes buying a boat easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend his professionalism and knowledge to all.
Vinny and his team were great! They made the process easy and went out of their way to make sure things were got done.Very happy with their service!
I have used Trident funding in the past & I'm currently in the process again. The level of responsiveness, honesty and helpfulness is nothing but incredible. I have recommended numerous people to Trident and will continue. Thanks Vinny again for all your help.
Vincent Luzietta did a great job of handling my boat loan. He communicated each step of the financing, was patient with any questions I asked, and expedited my loan as quickly as possible.I would recommend Vincent and Trident funding if you are considering purchasing a boat.
Vinny provided excellent and efficient service and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend!
This was my 3rd time to finance a boat with Vincent at Trident and was as always easy and smooth sailing!
Kristy Deboer was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional getting our Yacht funded. We had to work through several of them (failed surveys etc.) before finding the right one and Kristy was always right there to help us get through it. She is a credit to her company and words cannot express my gratitude for her assistance.
John was thorough , professional and informative, would definitely use him again
Vinny gets it done. He and his team were great to work with, they were extremely responsive, thorough and precise. I would recommend them to anyone. I have delt with many financing companies and it was like pulling teeth, Vinny at Trident makes it a smooth easy process.Thanks guys!
I’ve used Trident twice now for my boat loan. They are fast, responsive, creative, and detailed. Excellent communications by phone, text, and email from them. They coordinated with my dealer, licensing agency, and lender seamlessly, and even assisted in referring an insurance broker for what was a difficult time to place insurance in Florida. They could not have been better! Thank you John, Amy and team!
Kristy was excellent at describing the process and everything went as planned.
Kristy did a fantastic job taking care of our needs. Very friendly & professional
Confrontational, rude, underserving lending staff. John treated us like second class citizens and dismissed our concerns without conscience. Horrible experience
Trident has funded nearly all our loans over the past 20 years. Vinny is fantastic! I wouldn't use anyone else!
This was my first time buying a boat and I was unfamiliar with the process. John patiently explained the process and answered my questions (even though some were probably pretty silly and a little naive), and, basically, "held my hand" through the whole process.The whole process went very smoothly and efficiently. John and his people kept me updated and informed all along the way and were very clear and precise about exactly what documentation or other information they needed from me to complete the process and close the loan.I would definitely recommend John and Trident Funding to anyone contemplating buying a boat. Heck, I would recommend John to my mom if she was looking to buy a boat.
AMAZING costumer service. We got referred to trident funding. Vinny and his team has been fantastic, super fast turn around, very good communication. Very responsive emails and phone calls. No complains what so ever so happy to have been referred to trident funding! Can’t wait to start enjoying our boat! Thank you so much!!!!
Trident Funding and Leslie were great to work with when we were buying our boat. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.
Vincent Luzietti has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He has offered guidance throughout this process along with being diligent in the follow up process from beginning to end. He has made our experience with Trident nothing but positive!!
Vincent L. and Trisha ROCK! They moved quickly, helped me through a process that I was not familiar with (I mean how many boats do you buy?!?), were quick to respond, fairly priced, great rate and most importantly kind. I would recommend them to anyone that needs financing on their boat. Thanks again
Vincent was an absolute pleasure to work with. He answered all if my questions quickly and professionally even when some of my questions were not terribly professional. When you thank him for answering a question or solving a problem he responds with a typed " Your welcome" Who does that???Excellent professional in all areas. Very helpful.
Vinny provided me with a great rate and he is super quick! It's always a pleasure working with him. He is probably the best loan specialist out there!
This is my 3rd boat loan with Vincent and the Trident Funding team and I could not be happier with the service they provide. They make you feel like you are the priority. Would not go elsewhere for my boat loan needs.
Vinny and his team provided excellent service and are unflappable when dealing with all of the details. They have fabulous funding contacts who understand the details associated with buying and financing a boat. Couldn't be more pleased.
We are just wrapping up our loan with Vincent to secure a loan for our catamaran. He is an ACE! He is responsive and quick to return emails. He explained everything thoroughly and always calls us back promptly, even after hours. He is thorough & professional. Can honestly say, he is making the process less stressful. Vincent offered us a competitive rate and has a can-do attitude. He has been very friendly and courteous throughout the process. We would highly recommend him and grateful we had a professional to help guide us through.
Excellent experience for the second time! Same day loan approval, without the hassle of dealing with the bank. Professional, seamless and no-nonsense. Loan closing took 12 minutes from the time I arrived to the time I was back in my car. Thank you to Vin and the Trident Team.
Great working with Vinny at Trident
I have done two transactions using Trident Funding, Vincent and his team provide customer service unlike anything I have experienced in 30 years. I’ve dealt with a lot of excellent companies but this operation takes the stress out of luxury financing. No surprises no mistakes, no pressure. My first transaction was smooth, it was during Covid and we did the closing on the hood of a car in a parking lot wearing masks. This time the closing was remote and I asked if it was possible to move up the closing by a week to accommodate my schedule. They were happy to accommodate and I had no idea what I was asking… Vincent was on vacation, he was emailing and closely tracking my entire deal from what was supised to be his vacation, emailing daily for most of the week, Joe from Trident met me half way between our offices to hand deliver the closing docs so I didn’t have to drive all the way to their office - way above and beyond… and when it was all said and done, after it was a done deal finished closing, Vincent called me and said he was able to lower my rate because the fed has just adjusted the prime. Trident redid all the paperwork, just to pass the savings on to me. Like I said, I have not experienced Service like this anywhere, especially in finance. Thank you Vincent Luzietti, Eliana, Debby and Joe! Trident Funding you won’t find better service and their approval process was fast and the rate was by far. Vincent also referred me to an insurance broker who provided excellent service and pricing.
We have used Vinnie for many transactions over the years, and he always provides excellent service. He is efficient, easy to work with and a pleasure to do business with. We highly recommend Vinnie Luzietti and Trident Funding.
Just got my 3rd boat loan through Trident Funding. Vinny is an absolute pleasure to deal with and makes the task of financing a boat easy and quick. I highly recommend Vinny at Trident Funding for all your boat loans. Thank you..
I had a tremendously positive experience from start to finish with Trident and Vincent. He was great to work with and made the process seamless.
Joan was amazing throughout the process. Highly recommend!
Mike and his team at Trident Funding were remarkably responsive throughout the boat buying process. At each turn, they worked to explain, offer thoughts, & provide options. In a very timely manner. I would recommend Mike to friends - and, if financing in the future, would reach out again without hesitation.
*****TRIDENT FUNDING 5-STARS *****Buying a boat can be scary, specially when your dream boat is not located in your neck of the woods. Trident Funding made my experience fast and easy, starting from appointing a boat inspector to engaging a title agent right down to holding my deposit in escrow until the sea trial took place. I highly recommend Lesley, she is a pro!!!
I’m always wary when I see too many 5-star reviews, but the team at Trident really deserves them. Great communication, excellent advice, and they managed to hold on to an expiring lower interest rate by appealing to the lender for a brief extension. I can’t say good enough things about Lesley and the team, and I’ll only use them for funding.
Vincent was great to work with! Just bought out first pontoon and used Trident to find funding for it. He is extremely quick to respond, and if he doesn't have an answer he will get it for you! 100% recommend!
Everyone was very professional and performed as agreed to.
Vincent, made the process very easy for me to purchase my new boat. Extremely efficient and professional offering very competitive rates as well.PAINLESS. Thank you Vincent. Marty
Shanna and Trident Funding were amazing to work with on my new boat loan. One the most seamless and easy processes I've been through. Shanna's responsiveness and communication was 5-star. I would highly recommend using Shanna and Trident Funding. I know I will next time!
Leslie and the Trident team were excellent to work with. They explained the process, we’re transparent about everything, let me take my time and ask questions, and everything went through without a hitch. I highly recommend them!
Great service! Mike and Leslie are friendly, helpful, and competent!
Lesley Bishop and the Trident Funding team were great to work with! Our boat loan was complex since it was purchased internationally (Canada), but Lesley helped navigate us through the process smoothly!
Mike is an amazing person. He really helped me out on a loan for my new boat. He was always available and immediately responded to all of my questions.
Joan is amazing! On top of everything, so thorough and I highly recommend her!!!!!!!!!
Vinny at Trident Funding was excellent to work with. He was incredibly communicative – responding in the evenings and on weekends within minutes of receiving an email from me. He is very well networked within the yacht brokerage community and had great recommendations when I needed additional services. He was able to secure our loan with no issue and made the entire process easy. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to secure a boat loan.
Mike Jenkins and his staff are responsive, attentive, and creative. For me they eliminated the financing stress of buying a boat. They will be our go to financing team when we move up in a few years
Financing was as promised and the team rallied to meet a tight closing timeline. All members of the Trident team were professional and very easy to work with. Definitely use them again.
We have been Trident Funding customers since 2003 and have financed 4 boats through them over the years. Michael Jenkins and his team are very knowledgeable, responsive, and always find the best rates. They accommodate their customers schedules and needs and go out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. When it's time to finance the next boat, there's no question who I will reach out to!
Waiting for a very long time to buy a boat, concerned over the financing and going through what was expected as challenging, Vincent L. made the whole process so easy, simple and fast!I highly recommend Trident Funding for you boat financing needs!
Marty was awesome to work with. Very knowledgeable and smooth transaction!!
Great communication. Fast closing. Ty
Vincent was terriffic throughout the process. Super efficient, helpful and amazingly responsive. Will reach out to Vincent and the crew at Trident for all my future needs. Thanks so much!!
What a great experience. Jim Weston is a true professional that knows yacht financing well. Will definitely use Jim and Trident in the future. Thank you again.
A flawless and seamless transaction with Trident. Vincent is top notch and on point. This is my second purchse using their services and it couldn't have been easier. Recommend A+A+A+A+
I have dealt with Vincent for many years and on many loans from a 28 ft boat all the way to a 112 footer he always gets me the best deal and in a quick turnaround. I would not go anywhere else. thanks Vincent
I just financed our latest boat through Karen at Trident and she made it the most pleasurable boat buying experience I have ever had, and this is our 8th boat!! We will definitely be using her for all of our future boat purchasing needs...Thanks Karen!!!
Joan was amazing. Extremely organized and thorough. She was able to get us a much better rate than the dealership in a short time frame. Very knowledgeable and competent. Thank you Joan and Trident Funding!.
I've been very happy with my experience at Trident Funding. Joe Connolly and Trident have been very helpful and responsive to all questions/concerns.
I have worked with Vinny on 3 deals since 2015! (one fell through due to poor boat survey). He is very knowledgeable, has been in the industry for several years. He is as fast and professional as you could ask for! Highly recommend if you need boat financing!
We really liked working with Trident Funding! Customer experience was superb and rates were better than our other options. It made buying our first boat very smooth and appreciated not having to worry about this area of ownership!
John Schachel was instrumental in getting the financing in place for us to purchase our boat. He kept in constant contact with us and facilitated all the paperwork to make this transaction seemless.
My loan officer was very knowledgeable and was a joy to work with. I will use John again for all my boat loan needs.
This was a lengthy process made more so because we changed our minds twice, but John was patient and supportive throughout, and considering what has happened to the economy, our rate is at least acceptable.
I recently purchased a boat and had to resort to the internet to find financing. After some research, I ended up calling Trident Funding, specifically John Schachel. This was one of those times I got lucky and found a great resource. John made the process of financing my boat simple and was very responsive and straightforward. If you are looking to finance a boat purchase, I highly recommend John Schachel at Trident funding.
Glad I found Trident Funding. They were able to get me approved quickly and promptly responded to any requests I had. Would definitely use them again!
I had a great experience with John. He handled my boat loan professionally and made the process very easy for me. I would definitely recommend doing business with John and Trident Funding!Thanks for a great experience
Kristy was a pleasure to work with and made the process very easy.
Kristy did a great job!!!
Thanks Karen you made this a very easy and pleasant experience. On top of every detail and great service. Thanks to everyone that helped with getting this done!! Definitely would recommend Trident financial.
Karen was great took care of everything made the loan process very simple and easy.
Karen Floyd worked with me for two years in my search for my next boat. I would update her from time to time, letting her know that I was still in the search. She was always very positive and upbeat. During the actual financing process Ms Floyd was extremely helpful, supportive, and of course, professional.
Great service .would recommend to others no problem.
Karen Floyd and Trident Financial was a dream to work with. Constant communication! Every time I called or emailed Karen ALWAYS picked up the phone or answered my email with 10 mins. I couldn’t ask for a better loan creation experience. Thank you Trident!! And thank you Karen!
Great job made it easy !
Such an easy process. Marty was so responsive and did a wonderful job. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful customer service and a true joy to work with.
The whole team was professional, available, eager to help and on top of the whole process. Mine was a private sale, so their guidance to assure that myself and the seller completed all the right documents was a critical part of making it feel easy. Thank you team Trident!
Wow such an easy process!! Jim Weston is a pro. He made my boat loan go through so smooth and seamless. Trident funding is the place to go for boat loans. Prior to going through Trident I tried 2 other credit unions that had no clue on how to do boat loans, but claimed they did. At the end of the day Jim got it done so easy with a great interest rate.
Jim Weston at Trident Funding was a pleasure to work with. Besides taking care of my loan he connected me with the right people for transport. Great service and communication !
I was paired with Lesley for my financing and could not have been more satisfied. Very happy new owner of a 2016 Mastercraft X10. Process was incredibly smooth and took about 2 weeks from approval to picking up my new boat. Would definitely use again.
Marty walks you through the process. Answers emails and text right away. Highly recommend Trident Funding
Jane was fantastic to work with from my first call to her to our closing meeting. We really appreciate her timeliness in responding to us to enable us to move forward.
Karen at Trident Funding is absolutely phenomenal. She was extremely responsive and explained the thoroughly explained the process. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to finance a boat. She also offered competitive rates. It was a flawless process!
Outstanding coordination with my broker and insurance agents. And superb customer service. All of my questions were answered promptly and quickly.
Karen is very good at what she does!
Michael and Lesley were both great to work with, helped us understand our loan options, and were quick to get our application processed and approved! Highly recommend!
They were very easy to work with and super fast! Michael was amazing! Would recommend them and use them again!
Second time working with Mike and his team at Trident. Everything was professionally and quickly processed. Very happy with both transactions.
Great job! Marty was a pleasure to work with.
It was such a pleasure working with Jane. She went above and beyond to help us with the purchase of our boat.
Our experience for obtaining a loan with Trident Funding was exceptional, all things considered. Shout out to Marty Huff and his team who got this done in record time! Long story short, go with Trident Funding and don’t let snail mail scare you! Now if you want to know why, then continue reading. Story time.My wife and I were applying for a loan to get our first ever boat, a used boat. We applied to two lenders: one being a credit union who is capable of e-sign and the other being Trident, who is not caught up with times and had to overnight FedEx our loan documents, which must be signed/notarized and overnight sent back via FedEx. We were pre-approved by both lenders with the same terms, so we anticipated on moving forward with the credit union to expedite the process by taking advantage of e-sign capabilities. On Monday, I received a follow up e-mail from Marty asking when we were looking to move forward with the paperwork. I e-mailed him back thanking him for his time, but we were moving forward with a different lender. He replied with no hard feelings and wished us the best of luck. However, that was until the credit union completely changed all the promised terms due to the age of the boat when we began to move forward (which was BS considering they knew the age of the boat when we applied, but that’s fine).I quickly called Marty explaining our situation. He told me no worries and the pre-approval was good for 30 days. More importantly, the terms were still the same. Here is where Marty went to work. I provided all paperwork on my end. Marty contacted the broker, who also went to work. The broker sent all the necessary requested paperwork. By the end of the business day, Marty overnight sent all loan documents with clear instructions via FedEx with tracking. On Tuesday, I received the documents. Marty saw the loan documents arrived and reached out to ensure he was available should we have any questions when signing the documents. My wife and I got the loan documents notarized/signed and got them overnight sent back via FedEx with the provided pre-paid packaging. On Wednesday, the loan documents were received by Trident early in the morning. One last document was needed from the Broker/Seller, which was done by the end of the business day. On Thursday morning, our loan was funded by the bank! The broker had to wait on the seller to sign off and finalize, but we were in our boat that officially became ours on Saturday!Long explanation, but if that story doesn’t speak to why you should go with Trident Funding and ask for Marty, I don’t know what will. Thanks Marty Huff and your team for your hard work. My wife and I are enjoying our boat as promised!
Trident was very professional and prompt. When I needed help they were just a phone call away. I drove quite a distance to pick up a boat to my liking and was on a time table. Shanna and Amy were courteous and professional in meeting my needs, and everything happened on time. Thanks for all your hard work.
Frustrating experience. Filled out their loan estimator info on the home page and was shown with my parameters that I would qualify for a boat loan with 4.99% (I have top tier credit). Went ahead and applied for a loan based on that and was quoted a rate of 6.74%? Would not have formally applied and had a credit inquiry on my report if I would have been presented such a high rate at first. I must say that the President of the company did reach out to me directly to apologize.
Jane Tayman and the entire Trident team was incredibly professional, responsive and service oriented throughout the entire process! Highly recommend.
The process could not have been more simple. Communication was fantastic and every phase was seamless. Will definitely use them again.
Lesley and Mike were great to work with! Responsive, answered all our questions, and got us an excellent rate. Recommended.
Jane was fantastic- again! We have used her assistance with several boat loans over the years and she delivers exceptional service!
Trident Funding made my vessel purchase quick and easy. Regional Sales Manager Jane Tayman answered all my questions either immediately or within minutes which I found extraordinary. I recommend Trident to anyone financing a vessel.
We used Trident Funding to help us secure a loan for vessel we were purchasing and John Schachel was very helpful with the whole process from start to finish. Our process was made a little complicated with insurance and survey's which slowed it down more than I'd like but the Folks at Trident helped us however they could and ultimately made it a good experience.
Our experience with Marty was smooth and without any bumps in the road. He was very timely with his responses and easy to communicate. We highly recommend working with him!
Great experience! Lesley helped guide us to a great loan and was knowledgeable and patient with us while we searched for the ‘right’ vessel, which is difficult given the demand. Great team to work with.
Highly Recommended!! Trident Funding worked quickly and very diligently to get my boat loan approved!! Lesley was amazing and couldn't be more happy with the whole process!!
Used Trident to source financing for my sailboat. They were very responsive and patient with all of my newbie concerns/knowledge gaps. Had the best rates available by FAR!
wow, mike at trident funding was such a pleasure to work with. I closed on my dream of owning a sailing trimaran this morning. the only way this happened was because of how easy it was to converse with mike and how fast he was to get back to me with his questions and my concerns. I originally went with a big bank that had a good reputation in the area, still havent heard back from the big bank!!! glad I went with mike - I cant wait to get back on the water in my new boat!!! thanks mike
I worked with Michael Jenkins on the funding of our Beneteau sailboat and the process couldn't have been any better! The transaction was a bit more complicated in that we were purchasing the vessel from Canada and had to import into the US. Our initial lender couldn't help us due to it being a foreign transaction. Michael came to the rescue, was super helpful through the whole process, and made it a truly quick and painless transaction for us. I can't recommend Trident Funding highly enough!
Mike Jenkins made our boat funding process so easy! He exhibited great patience as our closing shifted multiple times due to boat delivery delays... Additionally his rates were the best! It's always a pleasure doing business with professionals that you can trust and Mike is one of those individuals!!! Most strongly recommend him!!!
This is our second round with Trident - We returned for good reason. The service and performance were 5-Star on both occasions. We'll be back a third - but only if we "need" a different boat somewhere down the line. Many thanks to Trident.
Jane was very informative and responsive throughout the entire process, and I highly recommend her and her team!
We have financed 2 boats with Mike at Trident. Both times the process was quick and straight forward. I have an adversity to loans of any kind but with no early payment fees, it made it an easy decision. If we buy a third boat, I would use them again.
Great Experience purchasing our HCB 42' !!!! We bought from a private seller and Jane helped us through the entire process. Thank you!
Mike at Trident was great to work with! He was very helpful, personable and made the loan process easy and it went smoothly. I would highly recommend them.
Working with Michael Jenkins in the financing of my boat was a straight forward and good experience. He did an excellent job in obtaining the best possible rate for my purchase. He gave me multiple options to consider. Very responsive and always got back to me quickly with professional answers to all my questions and concerns. I highly recommend Trident Funding!
We worked with Lesley on financing our new boat and she was incredibly knowledgeable and efficient. I hope I keep our new boat for 10+ years this time, but if not - I'll definitely use Trident Funding again. :)
Trident funding really sets a high bar when it comes to the marine industry. They are responsive, timely, and professional. Mike got me the lowest interest rate on my boat that he has ever seen - so that's a win for everyone! Given how busy this industry is these days, and it's generally more "relaxed" approach to doing business, I really appreciate Trident and their support and sense of urgency. Will definitely go back to Mike for my next boat!
Karen Floyd was off the charts! She made everything go very smooth. Thank you Karen and Trident Funding.
My wife and I were turned down by a few banks before it was recommended we give Trident a try, and I am so glad we did. We were turned down by our bank, and given an extremely high interest rate at another. When I contacted Michael at Trident I was not very hopeful we’d be able to get a loan. To our surprise we qualified in less than 24hrs with an interest rate that was almost half of what one credit union quoted us. The process was quick, professional, and trident was very communicative allThe way until we closed. We couldn’t recommend more!
John and the Trident team were great! We had a deadline to meet and they all came together and worked hard to make the process seamless and make sure we were able to close the financing on time to meet our deadlines. Thanks to John and the entire team!
I truly can’t give out anything other than positive praises for Trident and their amazing Joan Burleigh! She was THE ideal person to work with. If I could use just two words to describe her, they’d be: thorough and thoughtful. Joan is someone who puts the level of concern and diligence into her work that makes it feel as if she were crafting a loan for a very close family member. She was that caring, hard-working, and genuine. Thank you, Joan, for everything!
I would highly recommend Trident Funding. Michael and Lesley were fantastic and very responsive, able to answer the many questions I had and coordinated the transaction with my broker. They went the extra mile by getting this closed on a Friday before the holiday weekend so I could use the boat that weekend. I would use them again!
Marty did a great job
Lesley was very helpful and patient taking me through my first boat financing experience. Responsive and professional.
Michael Jenkins and his Team were fantastic in supporting the financing of our boat. They were responsive, requests were clear and they closed the loan early. We highly recommend Trident Funding. Doug and Julee
I can’t say enough great things about working with both Lesley and Michael. What a great team they are! I often times get impatient and want things done immediately despite knowing that there is a process to go through. Lesley kept me calm from beginning to end. We were on a tight timeline from the survey and sea trial to the closing, but I’m happy to say that we did it. It was sure worth it!I will add that I tried working with another lender before Trident Funding, but the responsiveness was just not there. I had a sense of urgency, but they didn’t. So very happy with my lender and my new boat! Thanks for all the future memories!!!
When I was looking to finance a boat purchase, I struggled to find someone who could meet the timelines our seller demanded. Trident was recommended to me. I called and Leslie took care of all our needs quickly and professionally. There were a few unexpected hiccups that she expertly navigated for us. In the end, I felt like I could relax knowing she was on the job. I would highly recommend Trident for anyone looking to finance a boat.
Jane and her team we extremely prompt and professional. My loan was approved with two phone calls and an online application. The documents we overnighted and returned, and we closed two days later. Couldn’t have been easier. Would highly recommend Trident for any of your marine financial needs.
Lesley and Mike did a Great job finding us a good rate. They made the transaction quick and easy. We highly recommend trident funding!
Mike and Leslie guided us through the entire documentation preparation process and kept us informed of what needed to be done by what time. A huge benefit to us while we were immersed in hull surveys, mechanical surveys and trying to find moorage. A huge number of moving parts. As a final act of incredible service, Mike met us after-hours 30 miles from his office to get documents signed for closing. This is our second marine financing project we've done with Trident and will definitely utilize them in the future.
First time dealing with boat financing. John did a superb job! The loan process was simple, John answered all questions I had promptly! We closed on the loan 5 days earlier than we expected. Thanks Trident Team!
When my wife decided we wanted a new boat a few months back, we were very fortunate to connect with John Schachel with Trident Funding early in the process. Not only did John respond to my requests to evaluate three different boats , but he shared insights he has learned over his 30 years of industry experience. Once surveys were complete, he exceeded our expectations and had our loan package to us within 2 days. If you are looking for a lender, I recommend you reach out to John and the Trident Lending team in Fort Lauderdale.
I don't remember a transaction of any kind going smoother than it did with Mike Jenkins at Trident. They took care of all the details and were always on top of the next steps. Don't look any further. This is the kind of company you'll go back to over and over again.
We just did our paperwork with Mike and the experience was nothing short of amazing! I’ll be recommending everyone to go through them. They were professional, easy to work with, and fast! Nothing worse than sitting and signing for hours on end. They made this process painless and actually fun (like it should be)! Thank you to Mike and the team for helping us.
Purchasing a boat has been a really long process. Funding with Trident was the easiest part. Michael and Leslie simplified everything for us as we live out of state, that was fantastic.
Jane was awesome!! She answered any & “many” ?s I had for her!! I highly recommend trident funding & Jane Tayman if you are looking to financing a boat!!
I got a boat loan from the Trident Funding - everything went smooth and the team was very professional and responsive.
Jane at Trident funding was amazing to work with through the loan process. She was able to quickly get everything in order to finalize my purchase on a new boat. I'm a return customer to Trident and will continue to recommend their services to anyone! Thanks!
I am so thankful that I had John Schachel and the Trident team helping me through the process of financing a boat. I'm so thankful to have such a knowledgeable professional walk me through the process. I had originally assumed that it would be as easy as just buying a car. Not at all! More like buying a house haha! Trust me, don't use an online loan service. The expertise of John and his team is unmatched. Not only did they guide me along the way, but they made it possible to close the deal super fast!
Jane was on the ball providing necessary documentation and returns phone calls..... a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone interested in buying a boat!Great job Jane!
Jane was absolutely amazing and made this closing the best of all of our many deals with other companies!
Loved working with Jane. The process was smooth and seemless.
Mike and Leslie were wonderful to work with at Trident. They were responsive and very knowledgeable. We will certainly use them again in the future.
What a wonderful experience. Lesley was so kind and patient helping me through this process. Purchasing a boat is very complicated but Lesley and Michael made it seem easy! I would most certainly recommend them to a friend.
I did not know financing a yacht was going to be so complicated. I reached out to John Schachel for help and he walked me through the whole process until the deal was done. Thanks John and the Trident Team for helping me buy the yacht of my dreams!
Mike and his staff at Trident Funding are rock stars. If you need financing for your boat, you can't find a better team than Trident. He is always available by phone or text, and delivers what he promises.
Great and fast service! Very friendly and works with you for your individual needs! Highly recommend!
Friendly, efficient and on point. The transaction, from application to closing, to DNR registration was perfect.
I don't have enough good things to say about these folks. John Schachel and Julio Santana handled my account which was the purchase of an Everglades 224 CC. They understand what customer service means and handled my loan efficiently and efficiently. I wish that more companies and their representatives understood how important customer service is.
I decided to purchase my 31' Formula knowing I was on a tight time-frame as I was leaving out of town on vacation. The seller's boat broker referred me to Trident Funding / Julio Santana. Julio was prompt, clear, and fast, and made the process easy. I got my approval within a day and got all set to close well within my time-frame. If and when I ever buy another boat, Julio and his team will be my first call. Thank you Julio, Amy, and team for making this transaction stress free and seamless!!
The Team at Trident made for a seamless transaction getting us into are 1st boat. Michael and Lesley were great and presented me with different options to best suite my needs. I will use them for my next boat and gladly refer them to friends!
Great service, Michael is very responsive and a fun person to work with. Highly recommend Trident as a one stop shop that will exceed your expectations.
Lesley and Michael are wonderful to work with! In my professional career I have worked with many many lenders and Trident was, by far, the most responsive, helpful and knowledgeable of them all. I highly recommend them.
Don't waste your time with the Newport Beach, CA office. Dealt with a loan officer who clearly couldn't be bothered to understand my unique financial situation. Found another company (Seacoast Marine Finance, highly recommended ask for Travis) that wanted to do business and now enjoying my new sailboat.
John Schachel was excellent. He communicated and handled everything very professionally on my boat loan. I am going to use him again. Thank you John
Mike and Lesley were a pleasure to work with... extremely responsive, knowledgeable, detailed, and efficient. They both made us feel like we were their only client and made a very large purchase for us a very smooth and transparent process. While I hope not to be buying another boat for a while, we will definitely not hesitate to utilize the services of Mike Jenkins and Lesley Bishop again when we do! :)
I usually don't write reviews, but in this case I had too. I recently purchased a boat using Trident Funding, dealing with Kyle Knodt and have to say he was unbelievable. Kyle took care of everything, communication was amazing. The sale went flawlessly all due to his hard work. If anything I would urge anyone seeking boat financing or any other type of financing call Kyle he made it look easy. As I said I don't write reviews, but as a retired police officer of 25 years, I know people he is the real deal Thanks so much Kyle!!!
Worked with Jim Weston on a boat loan. Incredibly knowledged professional who clearly understands his craft and how to get the best possible results for his clients. Very highly recommend calling him directly if you need help with financing for your watercraft/yacht.
I rarely submit reviews, but this one is a must. I highly recommend Trident Funding. My husband and I worked with Loan Representative Jim Weston who was very kind, professional, responsive and supportive. He worked hard at getting us the best rate and the best term. He followed up with on a consistent basis and thoroughly explained the process of purchasing a boat. Most of all he was patient and kind. When my husband and I finally purchased our boat he was just as excited as we were. We definitely will be repeat customers and a referral source for Team Weston. Will & Lisa S.
My entire process was stress-free! I highly recommend them! ! !
I highly recommend their services. Marty was professional, responsive and thorough. There are many ways for Boat transactions to go sideways. Using Trident and Marty you can check financing off that list!
My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Jane she very quick on processing our loan and responded to all our needs very quickly. We will definitely recommend Jane and Trident Funding for anyone looking for a boat loan.
Our experience with John Schachel at Trident Funding was fantastic. John is very knowledgeable and answered our questions thoroughly and quickly. Thanks to John and Trident funding, the loan process for our first boat was smooth and painless.
My experience with Trident has been exceptional. John S responded within minutes to every text or email question that I had, we finished up the entire process in just over 1 week including shipping docs and everything is highly organized. I would highly recommend Trident to everyone.
They made it a quick and easy process to obtain a boat loan. Now I can practice Social Distancing in Biscayne Bay!
I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience with Trident Funding loan officer John Schachel who went above and beyond to assist our family with our boat loan, John was always available and answered all our questions even on a Saturday. Thank you to John Schachel and the Trident funding team. Looking forward to using our new Boat this weekend.....
John Schachel of Trident Funding, Fort Lauderdale came highly recommended. Within minutes of my initial inquiry, John made contact with me and answered all of my questions. John was available 24/7.The loan process and closing was completed just as he described, quick, accurate and efficient. John has set the bar extremely high. I highly recommend John Schachel and Trident Funding.
Dealing with Bob and Amy at the Ft lauderdale office was great. The loan process was super easy from the application to the closing. Great and honest people to work with. I will recommend them anytime. Thanks again for getting me the loan for my dream boat.
I contacted Trident Funding about financing a 411 Meridian we were interested in purchasing. I worked with Joan Berleigh to get the loan. Joan got us a great interest rate and the entire process took less than two weeks. During the process Joan always returned my phone calls and was very good about answering all my questions. It was so refreshing dealing with someone who obviously takes great pride in what she does and is extremely honest and professional. If you are looking for painless financing for your new boat you need to contact Joan. Thanks Joan we love our new boat.
