Good Sites / Advice for Finding a Boat in the Med ?

I'm looking for a 40-43 ft. Beneteau to sail through the Mediterranean beginning in July.

I've gone to the big websites and looked.. theyachtmarket, yachtworld, boat4you, etc.,

I've also looked on charter brokerage companies (Sunsail, Moorings, etc) to look at the charter boats which are out of commission or are soon to be

Does anyone have further great websites, brokerages, or something I haven't thought of to try?

It's much appreciated

Maybe a little off the wall advice, but here goes. . . Visit distressed property websites relating to Med property. Try to make e-mail contact with an agent for same. Often, though they can't advertise, banking agents for distressed loans on property (and there are lots these days) will also have a portfolio of cars and boats for fire-sale as well. I heard of a guy in Alicante who got a cheap property deal and was shown boats at crazy low prices too. Alternatively, find the central regional marina, and find out who delivers the repo boats there for the banks. (There is one guy I know in Ireland doing this, and bringing boats to Dublin marinas) This delivery skipper can surely put you in touch with a decision maker in the bank, and as they say, no good offer refused. . . good luck!
