Med Refit

Hi I have searched this site and I have found a lot of information but much of it is either dated or not specific. This is the proposition; I own a largish (60ft) boat that needs a re-fit. She is on the south coast of the UK. I want to understand the costs of getting a refit done in the med. A lot of super-yachts seem to head to Turkey, there must be good reasons. I was thinking that if I burnt 3000Ks worth of fuel moving the boat, motor sailing. That would equate to 66 hours of skilled labour on the south coast of the UK. So what are the saving when I get there?
I would be really interested in hearing from folk who have done this rather than general discussion on theory.
Information I would like is
1. Locations, (Turkey, Spain, Malta etc) pros and cons.
2. Names of yards recommended or to avoid.
3. Rates of pay for skilled trades.
Thanks

Re: Med Refit

Thanks GordMay, I of course meant 3k of fuel not 300K.

you will need to be a lot more specific if you want more than just conjecture!

ie what type of refit?
engines out and overhauled?
masts removed and re rigged?
full respray?
decks replaced with new teak!
new wiring?
interiour gutted and replaced?
osmosis treatment?

project managed by yard,or diy by owner on site?

too many variables to consider
what is your budget?
