I hear that Croatia

Is the black sea and bulgaria cheap
to moor a boat?
Any of the islands around UK maybe cheaper than others?, any light you can give is great... South of france
is quite renowned for being expensive right??..
Croatia is expensive as is the whole med. ( in general)
As you go more northerly and into very temperate climates things get cheaper, but the winters are tough going. Ireland
outside the main population centres is very cheap as is northern UK.
might be a middle of the road option.
However with a boat of that size you will have to narrow the area down and do a search. The most difficult can be actually finding a long term berth never mind the cost. ( well in anywhere warm)
Unless you are a EU citizen there is also a host if other issues like residency status, tax, boat taxes
, VAT etc. you need to be informed.
But living aboard
in the med is far better then northern climes. For me that's worth alot of money
is generally cheaper and heating
costs considerably lower.
The big issue on the south of France is actually getting a free berth, many marinas
have 20 year waiting lists. France is cheaper as you proceed westwards. I have lived aboard for several summers on the cote d,azure and I really enjoyed it
Note that in many marinas
liveaboards are rare or forbidden, many exist " under the radar" I'd say you need to narrow your focus.
