Know a Good Surveyor in Greece (Ionian)?

Hi

I'm heading to Greece (Ionian) from the UK to see a few 46-52' blue water cruisers next week and would like to move things along fairly quickly if I see the right boat.

Can anyone recommend a good surveyor in the area - preferably one that speaks decent English?

'most grateful..

Woody

Oh, and following on from that... I've heard questionable things about buying in Greece - particularly relating to Tax and hidden costs - anyone have any recent first hand experience?

Re: Know a Good Surveyor in Greece (Ionian)?

Following two bad expereiences with local surveyors, I would always send someone from home. That way you can find them when things go wrong. Flights are pretty cheap.

Oh, and if you come across a German surveyor called Gerd Karl kindly kick him in the bollox for me. Thank you.

I know a good Italian one that makes lots of surveys in Greece and Turkey (including for insurance companies). Of course you have to add the price of the travel but from Italy to Greece there are lots of cheap flights.

He speaks very good English (his mother is British). PM if you are interested and I will give you more details.

I have very good experience with Spiros Courtelessis who surveyed my Oceanis 46 before I bought it. Very kind, very thorough, very experienced. Speaks and understands English well. Let me know if you're interested and I can look up his details...

I had a very good experience with Spiros as well and would recommend him but I have been told he is dead. No idea if it is correct or not.

Check british surveyor in Athens. Roger Walsh. I do not know him personally but learnt a lot from him (being a surveyor myself). Has great recommendations and good internet site.

Hi,

We recently used Rolf from Ionian Marine Surveys (www.ionianmarinesurveys.com) when we bought our boat in Preveza. He was great! Very knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

Re: Know a Good Surveyor in Greece (Ionian)?

I am using George Karamalis of Karamalis & Associates each time I need a boat survey in Greece. He is doing a very thorough inspection finding every hidden defect and provides me a clear report at the end. Know a few people who also had George do surveys for them and are all very happy with him. Website is Karamalis Yacht Surveyors in Greece | Karamalis-surveyors.gr
