Boat Hypothecation Agreement

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A hypothecation agreement as defined in boating terms is a pledge that allows a lender to attain ownership of a boat in the event of a default in repayment. Under these circumstances, the borrower retains ownership, title, and possession of the boat until the occurrence of such event.

Meaning


Marine lenders will typically require some kind of an instrument or agreement that allows them to take possession and forecose on the subject boat in the event of a default on the loan terms. This usually takes the form of a security agreement, preferred mortgage, and/or hypothecation agreement.

Context


A hypothecation agreement, apart from mortgages or security agreements, is not in itself widely employed in the recreational boating industry. However, exceptions may occur where a non-borrower pledges a boat as collateral for someone else's loan or where personal guarantees are required when the borrower is a legal entity.

Conclusion


Boaters who are involved with collateralizing a loan should seek legal assistance with any concerns about hypothecation agreements, preferred mortgages, or security agreements.
