Wink Seeking Information on Boat Registration

Hi all my partner Francis and I are in the process of purchasing a Bavaria 47 in Greece and we are not sure if the Greek authorities will accept a provisional registration and issue us with a transit log while waiting for Australia to process and post the original documents back to us. If anyone has had this experience would appreciate hearing how it worked for you. Also would appreciate any advice on forms of communication e.g blogs and how to?

Cheers

Don't beleive the registration is an issue for the transit log , why not just ask for it.

Hmm I think the direct answer is NO.

To get a DEPKA/transit log you first have to get a Greek TAX number and when eventually you have that number you take it along with the SHIPS PAPERs to the Port Police. The Greek authority will not allow any other method of obtaining a transit log or a DEPKA It has all changed now and they are not as lenient as they used to be.

However there may still be ways round this situation and perhaps someone on this forum may give FACTUAL advice.
