We are looking at the possibility of a good friend borrowing our boat for a couple of weeks around Greece
, however, the legalities and paperwork requirements seem to change depending on what you read. Would anyone have any factual information or real life experience on this subject for that area? (FYI, No money
is changing hands, they are properly qualified, insurance
is covered, and we are well aware of the ‘discussion point’ regarding friends using your boat, so can we leave input on this subject for another thread please?
One option is to make them part owner of the boat, but I presume there will be some hoops to jump through there. (Has anyone been through this process with an Australian flagged boat?) How about a letter ‘to whom it may concern’ signed by both parties acknowledging this as a private use event, between the dates of xx and xx, etc etc?
