in your home market is usually preferred.
You speak the language, you are accustom with the applicable law and tax situation, no overseas money
transfers. Visiting the boat
is easier, also getting quotes for modifications and repairs
You can be there during the whole process of buying
and refitting and still have you home / business running until you are ready for takeoff.
As I read your post, you have the money
for buying and comfortable living on board for a while. Why hurry then, just buy the boat
, enjoy it, refit
it and then drop the lines. You can sell your business when having a good offer, same for the house. You even can rent it and create passive income
for a while until you are sure you never want to get back.
Just relax and go step by step.
