There are rules for how long boats can stay. Different rules control how long people may stay
Assuming the crew
residence/passports, and no right of residence within an EU country, each will have passports stamped on arrival giving personal permission to stay for up to 90 days in any 180 day period anywhere within Schengen zone.
has not been imported into the EU customs
zone, the boat
will apply for a Transit Log. This gives it permission to stay anywhere within the customs
zone for up to 18 months - as long as it's not used for commercial
purposes, and only for non-EU residents. It's easy to hand in the transit log to visit a non Customs zone country and get a new transit log when the boat
returns - even after a very short visit.
Where to Cruise?
The page link above leads to about ten pages comparing the various sailing regions of Greece. Find the quiet regions, and the noisy regions by visiting the other pages. Cruising the mainly southern Islands is a rather windy experience in summer, so not very crowded!
