I don't usually like internet begging but yours is an unusual set of circumstances and surely forum members could put their hands in their pockets and help you out.
I have got to say thanks as well, your post made me look at another source of boat for sale ads I never knew I could access.
Cheers
We thought about it. Russian bank accounts were not supported before, and now even more so. Yes, and I'm frankly shy =)

Re: Boat for a living

I can understand being shy, asking for a hand out is hard to do.
Tell us what you're thinking if you get a boat, you going to live on it and go cruising?
How are you getting by at the moment, can you work in Turkey or at some stage do you have to go back to Russia?
Cheers

We have legal 2 months in Turkey (Can do 3). Then we need to return. I canít work legally (my wife works remotely). Now I am looking for ways to legally work outside of Russia (I am a truck driver). They wanted to live on a boat, to devote themselves to this. Before the madness of Russia, the plans were huge, now a terrible storm is safer than returning.
The story is long, I would tell, but I donít want to break the rules of the forum =)
Sorry again, google translate helps a little

I do a lot of business with companies in the UK and know they have a serious shortage of truck drivers. I don't know if you could get there or get a UK work permit but you might investigate this option.

SayariTatu did you see this yacht in Berlin? I was just wondering what countries you can travel to?

Wonderful. I'm trying to write to the seller. Marketplace for Russia is not available. And the location is good. Thanks

Greetings! I considered this option, there was an opportunity before the war, now they refuse =(

Re: Boat for a living

SsyariTatu let us know how you get on. It's always interesting to hear what happens.
I will be curious to see if the motor goes. The surface rust does not worry me.
Cheers

Wash, clean, etc. for pleasure. Paint, epoxy, fiberglass, wood is also not the first time. Engine, electrician love to repair and experience a lot. The main thing is to negotiate and get a visa

Re: Boat for a living

Whilst I was in the Cornwall area of UK over the last few years I could not believe how many abandoned boats (as well as those being almost given away) existed. I'm not sure if that holds true on mainland Europe but I would image there are a great deal of "fixer ups" sailboats for next to nothing available.

The problem is how to contact the owner. For two years of searching, I even wrote to the authors of ads where the abandoned ones stand in the background. Unsuccessfully. There was an idea to overtake a cheap boat for someone, and look at the marinas on the way
