Help. so many questions!

Great I have found the boat I want, and can afford, (just) but I fear a mountain of bureaucratic c**p rising before me. So here goes.

I live in Turkey.
Boat is in Croatia, British registered & owned.
Ideally I want to go to Croatia and complete the deal. Then sail her back home.

As it is a "foreign" boat (brit to brit sale) what should I do in terms of making the sale 'official'?
Taking her out of Croatia and transiting through Greece do I have to wait until I have the British registry changed before I take the boat?

Anything else I haven't thought of!!

All observations and thoughts will be welcomed as I am sure that there must be plenty of people with experience of similar situations.

Help!!!!!

Re: Help. so many questions!

a bill of sale,and registration with ssr is all that is needed easy!

make sure if there is a vat reciept with the boat you get it from the previous owner.

Free Bill Boat Sale Contract or Bill of Sale Agreement

Thanks for that Atoll.

Can I get away with using the SSR, in his name, to get home or will I have to leave the boat where it is until I get the SSR changed to my name.

Re: Help. so many questions!

the new ssr only takes a few days to process if done online and sent to a uk address.

but generally a bill of sale,and the old ssr with a letter from the previous owner are enough to satisfy the customs when you arrive in turkey and greece.

As Turkey is your "home" probably want to check out what import taxes apply (if any).

on arrival in turkey a foreign reg vessel will need to get a log book/cruising permit,that is renewed yearly,this allows the vessel to stay for up to 5 years tax free in turkey.
