looking for some well appreciated help.
I want to buy a small yacht to keep in the Caribbean
. I'm an Irish EU citizen living in Malta
so I contacted them. basically been told I would need at some stage before the first year is up to have a certificate of survey
done by one of their approved surveyors who are only available in Europe(same for registration
in Ireland). i have read a lot of the threads here about flags
of convenience in England
, Belgium etc but it seems the laws have become tighter and not doable and the Caribbean
method of paying 1,500 per upwards to companies to have it registered with them is unfeasible for me.
It seems if I buy a Martinique
i could keep it registered there but not sure about other places or how stringent they are. I have been reading threads for hours and it's a MINEFIELD! any advice
would be much appreciated
