A canadian boat going to UK

My family and I have joint UK Canadian citizenship. My wife and I are taking our 46 foot sailboat,Scooter to London UK mid May. Planning to enter UK on Canadian passports and then renew our UK (EU ) passports when we arrive. Understanding is that boat can be in Uk for 18 months without paying VAT, and as Canadians we can stay for 6 months is that right.? Anything we havent considered? (May go back to Canada for Christmas.) comments welcome. Thanks
Wendy and Peter Gibson

Well if your going to London you'll likely be at St Katherine's Dock or Galleons Reach... if you are renewing UK/EU passports you'll need and address for them which means you can then apply for an SSR registration for the boat which can then cruise and stay in the Schengen zone indefinitely...
If that's what you'd like.. then re-register when you re-cross the pond..
