€8 for a 41ft is a good price.
You mean there are mearinas that charge €60 a day for a 41 footer? Sounds outrageous…. Does it come with a bottom paint LOL.
No, In Greece it is less expensive than in Croatia and in Turkey is less expensive than in Croatia and regarding Greece it depends of the place but I would say that it is less expensive. Much less expensive for sure if you instead of eating where the tourists eat eat where most of the Turks eat and in that case it is 1/3 of the price or less.
Two problems: On those places you cannot drink anything except tea or mineral water
(that you don't pay) and on touristic zones there are one of those to each 20 tourist traps and they are not on the waterfront. The positive side is that if you are a nice guy and respect them and their customs
you are welcomed there by the owner and the clients.
60 Euros is the minimum you pay on marinas
that are not in very touristic places. "Normal" prices for a 41ft boat on high season on top locations are normally between 80 and 200 Euros a night. On the Balearic Islands it is slightly less but not much less. On croatia 60Euros is normally the average on marinas. On Greece it goes from 35 to 60 Euros and on Turkey it is pretty much the same, even more expensive on some top marinas.
The big and very important difference is that contrary to Croatia and Turkey the Greeks have a huge number of Ports
, many without water
or electricity were you can stay for 8 to 15 Euros a night. for electricity and water you pay normally more 5 Euros or so.
This year I had a problem near Corfu and had to put the boat on the hard
for a week or so on Gouvia Marina (near the capital). They charge the same price on the hard
or on the water. It costed about 600 Euros and about the same for taking and putting the boat on the water. Gouvia is one of the most expensive Marinas in Greece.
