Could anyone guide me....?

Because I now live in Europe, I want to sail my 44 foot sailboat from Caribbean to the Mediterranean Sea so I can have more time cruising...

I have been looking at various websites about prices in marinas and possibilities to leave my boat when I'm not sailing around, and it is a jungle. HELP!!!

Which countries are cheap to leave my boat in?
Either at a mooring, on land or in a marina...

Thank you very much.

Re: Europe

Port a Sec in Martigue, near Marseilles and next to Etanng du Barre. Great storage yard, great people, great port loaded with history and home to the Joust,( jousting with lances from 30' boats, done all over the river system in France).

Re: Europe

Since you said you are living in Europe you should check to see if the boat can be imported into the E.U. - they have different standards than Caribbean islands. Also there is the matter of taxes on the boat once it is based in the E.U.
- - You may find out that it costs too much to keep it in the E.U. Only some research will tell whether it does or not.
