Buying in the Med

We''re thinking of buying a used 36-38''sail boat, probably not more than five-years old, in the Med for two- to three-years of cruising.

Does anyone have recommendations as to where, time of year, experiences, do (other than the obvious survey), don''t, URLs or references, etc.

Tejas, you''d be welcome to visit http://www.svsarah.com/Whoosh/Buying%20a%20Boat%20in%20Europe.htm where I''ve posted an article on buying in Europe. It''s a big topic and this is intended as an overview for the purpose of identifying some of the issues. If you are buying a European boat (most have VAT built into their price) with U.S. dollars (currently weak in Europe), you''ll find most boats to be relatively expensive.

BTW this link is direct. It is at John Stevenson''s helpful website, www.svsarah.com under the ''Whoosh'' Title.

WOOSH, thanks for the reference. I have little experience, so I mostly lurk and avidly read all of your posts.
