Sailboats in Greece

I have noticed that sailboats in Greece have somewhat lesser asking price. Any particular reason? Not by much but there is still a difference.

Re: Sailboats in Greece

A few thoughts:
- Lots of long distance ownership means boats that are left unattended and unloved.
- Locals can't afford more expensive boats.
- Ex-charter boats
- Related to charterin: I believe there is a way to avoid paying VAT for a charter boat, so that undermines the value if you want to put it into personal use.

Re: Sailboats in Greece

Its mainly that there a lot of boats owned by foreigners , who when they sell , just want it gone. The charter trade is really a small fraction compared to private boat ownership in the med.

Re: Sailboats in Greece

Boats in Greece from what I've seen first hand are not very well cared for. So they may be in need of far more tlc. There are of course exclusions to this and as a result good deals.
