How much to deliver a boat to Spain?

Hi!
My girlfriend and I live in Spain and are looking for a boat to buy and have noticed that, for the models that we are looking at, there is much more offer and better prices either in the US (Florida mainly) or the Caribbean. We would prefer to find a suitable boat here in Europe, but we might consider buying one in the Americas.
Anyway, we don´t feel confident enough (yet!)with our sailing abilities to sail a boat that we are not familiar with across the ocean on our own, so we would need the help of a professional skipper that would help us deliver it to Spain. We would not need any extra crew, the boat is meant to be handled by us two alone, and we feel confident enough for a transatlantic passage if we are accompanied by a professional skipper. So, what I would like to know is if any of you could give me some idea of the approximate cost of hiring a professional skipper to help us with this delivery.

Thanks in advance!

How much to deliver a boat to Spain?

Hola,
Soy de Barcelona, he leido tu mensaje y me gustaria comentarte mi experiencia aunque es indirecta.
Ahora poseo un Voyage 12.50 que estuvo durante 6 años haciendo charter en las antillas menores, luego mediante un marinero este lo trajeron a españa, donde se pusieron en regla todos los papeles, Asiento, abanderamiento,iva, seguro y matricula.
Esto te incrementa (en condiciones parecidas a las mias) sobre 15000 € el coste del barco, aún así en los mares del caribe, es buena época adquirir un velero antes de los huracanes.
Hace tienpo que nos se nada del marinero que trajo el barco pero se dedica a esto profesionalmente pese a su juventud, (27 años), se llama Antonio Alcahud y tiene página web... creo que esta te enlaza..http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/alcahud/relato.htm.
Saludos y espero haberte ayudado.
S.
