You can apply for an ancestral visa based on your grandmother. However you must then live in the UK for 5 years and then apply for permanent residency and from there to citizenship and a UK passport. I have just been looking at this for myself. slow but works. Good luck.

It solves lots of problems for us as dual UK/AUST holders we leave and re-enter on Aus and enter Europe on UK = easy peasy. Cheers

Yeah it might be something worth doing to gain citizenship in the EU and be able to travel with no problems in the boat. How hard is the sail from Croatia to the UK?

Re: Buying a Boat Overseas ?

Nothing is hard if planned and you are prepared to wait for weather windows, maybe enquire about delivery where you are part of crew, that way you get your experience with a good degree of safety and on a reasonably tight schedule.

Adriatic to UK and probably more so France/Germany is done very often google you will find many sailing blogs describing what you are asking of.

Haha 215k US. I think my absolute max would be somewhere in the 70k mark.

Just in case someone wants more info. I can give you direct contacts for this boat, it's owned by a french family we cruised along with for a few weeks. Nice bloke, one of the guys that try to get things done right and not "quick and cheap".
The boat is fully equipped, second owner, never chartered and in near perfect condition with everything working.
If I was to re-do our sabatical trip this would be my choice. But instead I have to get back to work next month
