Luxury & Marine Finance

Prestige and Classic cars are our passion not just our business”

 

SME Finance Group’s original business commenced in 1978 as Michael Pratt & Associates, our Founding Director Michael Pratt was introduced to Alan Hamilton; whose father, Norman was the sole concessionaire to Australia – New Zealand for Porsche motor vehicles. The Hamilton family were the first global importer of right-hand drive Porsches outside of Germany, also having a retail presence in South Yarra.

 

Through a continuing strong relationship with the Porsche brand and other prestige manufacturers, the company was appointed the preferred finance consultants for Porsche Cars Australia in 1978, this arrangement continued for 20 years

 

Since the establishment of the business, year on year we have continued to increase the annual volume of luxury and prestige cars financed through our office. Over the journey we have financed an extraordinary number of classic and interesting cars ranging from all makes and models such as - Ferrari F 40’s – Daytona’s – 599 GTOs- 812 SF – 246 Dino’s - Rolls Royce Phantom’s, Dawn’s, Wraith’s, Ghost’s – Bugatti’s – Maserati 300s, Ghibli’s – Aston Martin’s both old and new, all models of Jaguar including our old favourite E Type’s, Mercedes, BMW, hundreds of Porsches old and new – Many Lamborghini’s including several Miura’s – McLaren’s, the list goes on

 

A number of customers dating back to 1978, continue to use our services when financing their everyday, luxury or classic cars. In many instances SME Finance Group now also assists these customers with their business and personal finance
