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.
