I'm grateful for any hints...
Have a read of this thread and the later posts which apply. the word you are looking for to search the UK Customs
website is "chattels".
UK VAT on a yacht purchased in Australia...
I can't advise on other EU member
states, it would be nice if they were all the same and they may be, but......... Still England
is very pleasant in the summer.
I hear what you say about your yacht and your S2 is similar to our Moody 31, but I would still sell it and buy another in Europe
. The place is full of very nice 30+ fin keeled fast modern yachts at good prices. What you won't find in Europe is an abundance of US long keeled yachts. I can only think of one Westsail 32 in the Solent, the other 50,000 yachts are fin and spade.
