I hear (scuttlebutt, of course) that Turkey is exceptionally affordable/economical.

If you'd like the scoop on Greece, contact goboatingnow. He's been doing extended cruising in Greece and will have a good perspective on a Greecian comparison.

Good luck! That's a huge boat.

Good luck. Hope you've got quite a sailing resume - and someone with equal sailing background going with you - at least. 60' is a huge boat.

Here's a cautionary tale from this year - please note Posts 20, 30 and 46:

Re: WINTER storage greece or turkey?

Options here in the Ionian are winter berths in water ( very common ) oct -April

Other options are lift out in Akio near preveza there are three very large hard standing areas ( 1000s of boats ) you can live on the boat in some too.

All trades are available but work is not cheap in Greece. Turkey is definitely cheaper but I’ve no specific data. Here in Lefkada we have all the marine agents , mechanics. Fabricators , stainless etc

Re: WINTER storage greece or turkey?

The advantage of leaving the boat on the hard in Greece is that while on the dry, you don't pay their infamous boating tax (TEPAI), but this has to be offset with other related costs (lift) and works that need to be done (eg antifouling, smaller and bigger repairs). In spring I received a quotation from a Turkish shipyard for the installation of the bow thruster which proved 100% higher than the one I got from very pricy Croatia, moreover, there were many open ends and additional charges, eg shipyard fee on top of the marina's dry berthing fee.

Re: WINTER storage greece or turkey?

Can anyone recommend a place in Greece to leave a Lagoon 380 catamaran for the winter?
East Greece would be better as I am in Turkey and here they have almost doubled both wet and hardstand fees.

Labour is definitely cheaper in Turkey.

Can only refer to western Greece but Aktio has dedicated hard standing yards only businesses and these are very competitive. Marinas often have pricey hard standing .
