Yacht buyers have the flexibility to apply for yacht refinancing after the purchase of their yacht has been made, allowing the owner to release funds for investment in other interests and activities.

Mike Simpson, Founder of Simpson Marine, said: "EPOWER can fund the purchase of all types of yachts, ranging from small sailing boats to the world's largest superyachts, and covers all brands in the Simpson Marine portfolio from Beneteau, Lagoon, Monte Carlo, Monte Carlo Yachts to Sanlorenzo and Viking.”

Elliott Cheng, Managing Director of EPOWER, said: "It took us a few years, while acquiring the best and most reliable banking partners, to develop and complete this financing solution. I believe that EPOWER will enable more buyers to realize their yachting dreams quicker and easier and give a big boost to the growth of the yachting industry throughout Asia."
