Thanks ... now registering a boat in Switzerland is awfully expensive as they are asking you proof of bluewater captainship (which is a 5000 USD course for 2 years) and apart from that insurance premiums as high as 600 USD monthly. Now wonder there are not too many boats registered under the swiss flag.

Which country would be interesting to register that boat ? Panama? Nigeria ? Bahamas ? ...

Can anybody help with more detailed info ?

Thanks guys ....
