I am new here. Living in Brussels, french (and other ) speaking. I have purchased a US boat in Turkey
, I understand the Turkish rules, it's ok.
VAT on the boat is not paid and I am european citizen, I tried to pay the VAT in Greece
but they could't determine the price
to pay and did not accept my offer, strange but true ! So, I will register her now in Delaware and later somewhere else in Europe
Anyway, I would like to sail her this year in Europe
waters going to Greece
(will join Europe in JUly 2013, I think).
I have not found precise information on the rules for US boats to sail in Europe. I am looking for better information:
- Is it true that US boats can stay 18 months in Europe, then have to leave, and could come back after ? time ?
- Is the out of water
time also counted ?
- A transit log is needed in Greece, I guess; For Italy
? For Croatia
- Any other harassment ?
I would appreciate websites or forum links.
I am also looking for a place close to Bari to winter the boat, any hint ?
Monopoli looks nice to me, but no phone
for the boatyard there.
Thank you in advance,
