I am planning on buying
a 40' catamaran
next year to spend a season in the Med with my family
. I have been diligently tracking yachts for sale
, reading forum posts on different topics and skilling up etc. I am planning on moving to Greece
in Jan/Feb to search in earnest however if I find the one beforehand all the better.
Although I have been sailing for the past 20 months or so I have never bought a boat before so am thinking of using a boat broker
. (yes, i have read the threads on whether or not to use a broker)
The below list are what I can see as being the main brokers in Greece
, so my questions for the think tank that is cruiser forum is thus.
1) Can anyone share any experience good or bad that they have had with any of these brokers.
2) Have I missed any that you think I should look at.
3) As they are buyers brokers, does it really matter if I use one in greece where I will be staying until I find a yacht.
