comparison Greece UK prices buying yacths

Dear George, are you a EU citizen?

The sailing yacht you gonna buy will not be brand new, so the VAT is allready paid, if it has EU flag. If you are a non EU citizen, you can stay in Greece for maximum 6 months in tranzit, then you got to take the boat out of the country, orelse you got to prove that the VAT was paid in EU.

Boats with non EU flag, are paying every 3 months a special fee 18 euros per mettre. EU boats are not paying such fee. So if you want to sail in Greece and to stay long, it is better to use a EU or Greek flag sailing boat.
