Re: Buying a boat in Croatia

Croatia has a large second hand boats market. There are many boats that are in great condition and surely many of them in terrible. If you need someone to look at the boat in Croatia and do the pre-purchase survey - feel free to send me a message.

As such my fee for a 15m boat will go from roughly £200 to £900 for a year.

It’s a shame, we have been there 6 years, but maybe it is time to move on.
Fixed it for you.

Re: Buying a boat in Croatia

This post was started three years ago now... I too am wanting to purchase a yacht in Croatia (probably a Bavaria 44 - up to $100K AUD), thinking of landing there this coming April from Australia (AUS citizen) to spend a year or so sailing the Med... how have you all gone that have posted here saying you were going to do the same thing in the past?

Is there anything that needs to be updated from the info in this post? I'm thinking of establishing relationships with the recommended brokers from this post and have them line up potential boats for me to check out on landing...

Re: Buying a boat in Croatia

OZ-Sailor.
I bought my Jeanneau 49ds there 4 years ago. There are lots of ex charter boats that are 8 yrs old going up for sale every October. By April they need to be gone for whatever the market will bear to make room for the new replacements.
Showing up in April is a bit late for most boats but you may still find some leftovers.
I suggest emailing every charter company in the Med for their list of boats for sail and of course search yachtworlds listing as well. You should find a Bavaria 50 for less than you are offering for a 44.

Re: Buying a boat in Croatia

i've been hard at trying to secure a boat before landing there in April - getting a surveyor to do inspections for me to then make an offer, get it surveyed and purchased so I can take ownership before I arrive, as it can take many weeks to go through all of this apparently. One word of advice is to stay clear of Selymar Yachts - they refused to send boat documents for one boat or to allow my surveyor to even look at it!! Have had success with Marin from Almissani... having boats looked at this week.... will keep you posted

Re: Buying a boat in Croatia

Hi Mike - I'd be happy to assist... I'm actually leaving to go to Split, Croatia in a couple of hours, deciding it was too hard to rely on photos and to organise across the trench. I am very happy with the boat surveyor Petar Pecur petarpecur@yahoo.com who has inspected one yacht for me... he sent me back about 130 photos showing a different boat to the one in the photos... To be honest there seems to be so many boats available I thought it best to bite the bullet and spend the $2K to go there and personally go through as many as I can in a week. The brokers have changed their tune a bit as well when I asked to meet them this week compared to trying to buy whilst in Australia. I'd be happy to fill you in on my return. PM me and I'll respond later.
