I have just bought a yacht in Greece
and will keep it for fly-in sailing trips.
As I am from Australia
and know that I will eventually move back to Melbourne, I have been thinking about how to deal with the boat. This more a case of long what if thinking rather than actual planning.
My first thought obviously was to deal with all the fun of importing the boat and take it to melbourne. Other thoughts have been to continue with fly-in sailing and keeping it in Queensland
and I have even thought about leaving in the med as the money
saved not importing it would probaby pay for quite a few trips to the med.
Anyway, it has got me wondering if there is any country in the se-Asia or the south pacific
where they allow you to keep a foreign registered boat for a long term period (years) without having to officially import
it and pay duty/taxes?
I just curious if anyone has ever looked in to this?
Chances are that I will get sick and tired of a long distance relationship and will end up keeping her close to home
