We are a family from Chile. We already have a shortlist of three boats that are being surveyed by Mr. Srecko Favro, who is very professional and made all the coordinations possible.

As soon as we decide on one of the boats, should we appoint a buyer's broker for the paperwork or just keep the seller's? We will need someone to sail her to Montenegro and back for the temporary admission to the EU as well, have anyone experience something similar and could suggest a person to do that?

Thank you!!

Hi Rehtor
We purchased our Catamaran in Split Croatia from a broker and Dr Srecko Favro was the Assessor that i contracted! using a Broker was really helpful but my situation was very complicated and the broker made it very easy! we were a bit disappointed with Favro after we found out info after the whole deal was done. If you PM me i can elaborate some more.
The paper work and a skipper will be arranged by the agent but i can give you names and details of who we used if you like!

Re: Buying a boat in Croatia

I've heard from a few Croatian skippers and marina staff that "side deals" are extremely common in Croatia. So the surveyor knows the broker, they agree to a commission if the deal gets through / not many problems are found... same with many moorings, you either book online and pay the official price or you pay the marina staff directly half the price.

Saw it happen only once, but talked to some people this Summer during my week sailing in Croatia.

I can recommend getting in touch with Jerry Jacob at DYC to enquire as to what boats they may have available

gerry.jacob@dreamyachtcharter.com

They are one of the biggest yacht charter companies in the world


I am in fact sitting in a cafe in Greece at the moment LOL. We have a Facebook page blogging what we have been getting up to if you care to view:

I had a good experience with Almissani before I found my boat But yes, I would stay away from Selymar. Even the surveyor who I mentioned earlier in the thread (and can recommend) Peter had bad experiences with them. Others over here from the Facebook group called ‘Med Sailng’ (you should join) also said to stay away from them.

Best of luck in your search and fair winds... let me know how you go!!

Congrats to your Bavaria 40! Very nice boat. It seems that there are a lot of this type in Croatia. How old is yours and did you have to fix something or was everything ok? (sorry, maybe you already answered this in some other post, haven't seen it maybe).

also Iceland its NOT in the EU, but they belongs to Schenghen agreement
