Thanks ahead of time for your help. I'm trying to put together the following puzzle and I'm sure many have gone before me.
I live in California
and want to buy a boat near or in Greece
, get it to the Ionians and spend at least 2 summers boating
there, putting it on the hard
for the winters. I may then sell it or maybe move it to Italy
or...The boat will be around 26-32', ~USD25,000, something easy to handle and that won't break the bank. This will be my first owning-in-another-country experience. The biggest challenge I seem to be facing is insurance
. Do you folks have suggestions? I also see that there's a great selection of powerboats and sailboats in Croatia
as well as other nearby countries. I am also thinking about single-handing it in very easy conditions. I have a very decent sailing resume so hopefully that won't be an obstacle.
All suggestions/cautions/warnings welcome.
