    First of all, my wife and I would like to thank you and your company for helping us realize our dream of buying a boat to sail the world! We both recently retired and this is our gift to ourselves. We'd heard from other boaters how user-friendly your services and reasonable your rates, and they weren't wrong. So again, thank you.

    Amazing experience! I reached out to LightStream because I'm buying my first boat and I can't say enough about how great this experience was. I submitted my application online on a Wednesday, got a call a few hours later that missed. Called them back in the morning the next day, answered a couple of questions they had, got an email 20 minutes later asking for me to attach my latest paystub, 20 minutes after I did that I got an email with approval. I could have had the money wired the next day if I chose. I held off because I was still negotiating with the broker on the boat. The whole process took less than 24 hours. To put it in perspective, I submitted an application with the broker to finance through his company two days before I submitted with LightStream... it's now been almost a week and I haven't heard back regarding the financing from the broker yet. I just told him to forget about it, I was going to pay cash. That helped the negotiations! I never, ever take the time to write reviews but this process was so easy, the customer service and responsiveness is by far the best I've ever had. If you're looking for a pleasant experience financing your next toy, you have to reach out to LightStream and see what they have to offer.

    I have to respond to this confirmation just to say I cannot remember when I have been so impressed with the efficiency, simplicity, and design of anything! The period of 30 days is perfect. This is a very good deal for the boat I want, but is not confirmed as of yet. Wanted to secure the funds ahead of time. I will definitely return to your site for future needs, and recommend you to anyone who might need your services.

    Thank you very much for making our loan application a very enjoyable experience. We have never dealt with any business that has been as professional and efficient as this process has been. Getting the loan has been so much easier than dealing with the boat dealerships. Most seem to not care whether they sell a boat or not, and that is not the case with your organization. You’re NUMBER 1! You put your customers first. I’m not too proficient with the computer, but your instructions were easy to follow. Thanks again!

    “LightStream, an offshoot of SunTrust Bank, offers excellent rates for creditworthy borrowers for non-home and auto-related personal loans... There are no fees for loan origination, prepayment, or anything else… flexible terms and high borrowing limits make it a good choice… [LightStream is] also speedier than peer-to-peer competitors — you can have your money in as little as a day.”
