My girlfriend and I are seriously considering buying
a used 28 - 35 foot powerboat/cruiser in Europe
and use it to cruise
the canals and rivers there for a few years.
Does anyone on the forum have experience with this? I'd like to know about general costs, paperwork between countries, best routes, what to avoid, etc.
Ideally, we'd like to buy something that is mechanically sound, but needs some cosmetic work
, which we would do along the way in hopes of recouping our investment when we are done.
