Where to make an upgrade in the Mediterranean

I bought a Cyclades 43.4 in Croatia with coastal license. My intention is to sail her to Chile in about 3 more years. My question is where is technically and economicaly more convenient to install the new equipment such as HF SSB and others in order to get the oceanic or offshore license?

I think Turkey, but that is just a gut feeling, I have not studied the question. Turkey has excellent craftsman and first class yards.

Re: Where to make an upgrade in the Mediterranean

Agree on Turkey - we are in Marmaris and Marlin Yachting is rebuilding our engine and Sail Marmaris will help me replace all my thru hulls - we had bow rollers built from scratch along with some other items that we wanted done - along with new bimini and dodger -

BUT not sure what license you are talking about - but in Croatia maybe Euro Marine who runs a charter business but also boat work - they did some great work on ours - can help with the radio and the license - when I said something about a capt license one of the guys joked that if I gave him XX euros and wait a few weeks he could get me one - only thing is he was not joking
just our thoughts and opinions
