Leaving aside the issues with google
translate. ( feet metres etc) It makes I believe two things clear
( a) the 30% discount applies to all taxes
in paragraph 2 , not just the 12m + as has been erroneously reported.
(b) it's clearly an annual tax applying from the 1st of January every year.
(C) I would contend that the monthly option relates to the payment options , the intro clearly says the tax is on an annual basis. Hence once you enter Greek waters and dock
and seek your DEPKA or TRANSIT LOG. You will pay an annual charge. Innocent passage
seems to covered in that foreign yachts that pass through without stopping , will not have Depka or transit log.
I am convinced concessions will be made for short term visiting yachts
