comparison Greece UK prices buying yacths

We currently live in the USA, but are considering moving to Greece to live permanently or at least more than six months a year. My wife was born in Greece, so she is considered a citizen of an EU country.

Here is what the Greek Embassy said we could do. From an non-EU country, we could bring into Greece; one non-diesel car, one boat, one motorcycle, and one plane all without having to pay a VAT. We must have owned any item we bring in for at least 6 months, and we must sign an agreement that we will not sell it for at least one year. If we buy any item from an EU country, we must pay the VAT.

Your situation may be different from ours.
