Buying a Yacht in the Mediterranean

Hi, I'm interested to buy a 40' odd yacht in the Med and keep it there for sailing personally (not chartering out) for 1 or 2 seasons, and then maybe bringing it back to Thailand for good or selling it in the EU.

I have an Irish and British passport, but but am not an EU resident as I reside in Hong Kong. I would really appreciate advice on what is the best option in terms of which country to buy and register a yacht assuming I wish to commence from the Med. I understand I would need to get a VHF licence also for the radio installed in the yacht and not sure what that entails in a Mediterranean country being only an English speaking person?

Been researching this and its really very confusing and off putting.

Many thanks.
