Buying used in the Caribbean in EUD with USD

With the decent exchange rates currently available, it would seem to be pretty good value for anyone with USD saved to buy with the lower EUD at the moment. I had thought this would be accomplished by picking up a new or used yacht in Europe, but there is another option,buying in countries that use EUD as there currency, including Martinique, Guadeloupe etc. being so close to the USA some of these countries base their pricing in USD even though they are using EUD. Most cruisers however are returning to or have returned to Europe and want their price in euros. Now might be a good time to take advantage of the situation to secure a yacht for next season. Most yachts are berthed for the upcoming hurricane season, or about to be so sellers would be negotiable when taking that into account.
Here's a useful site for Martinique for anyone wanting to find a yacht or compare prices. Guadeloupe or metropole France can also be found on the same site

Happy hunting!

If you are thinking of Euro the currency symbol is EUR, not EUD.
