as to the "mind-bludgeoning homogeneity of its EU shores" actually half the problems are that it is not.

That's gotta be one of the craziest statements I have ever read on a cruising forum,

Methinks a little further investigation is warranted.
A tax resident in Spain pays 12% luxury tax on their property in Spain. VAT would be in addition to that.

[QUOTE=goboatingnow;1001411][QUOTE="terra57"]This is .....

The 6 month/ country rule to avoid EU taxation is not a problem. You place your boat in bond after 180 days and take it out of bond when you leave the country or your time out expires. We have not been charged for the bond.

Of course this is nonsense advice. as long as you are not a EU tax resident you never need to bond your boat. There is no 180 day rule for boats. It's 18 months extended to 24. In practice as long as you aren't a resident you can keep it there forever. There is never a requirement to "bond" a boat.

The problem is not the VAT tax, the Bond in Spain allows you to avoid the 12% Spanish luxury tax that kicks in after 6 months, which includes boats as well as other 'luxuries'. This is separate from the VAT.
