UK of Greece for Oyster 39?

Hi all,

I have had a look around various forums, and am starting to get the idea that a purchase in Greece is not really any cheaper than buying in the UK on a like-for-like or even similar-for-similar basis.

We are currently looking at an Oyster 39 in Greece and one in the UK.

Aside from obvious transport costs to get the Greek one back here (we have school age kids and the med doesn't work for us at this stage), it also needs work.

The UK one is up for £35,000 more than the Greece one, and also needs work but more of it appears to be cosmetic

On the face of it, is a £35k differential enough to make the Greek one worthwhile?

They are similar vintage and the key differences are;

UK one benefits from new decks, newer sails and standing rigging. She is inmast reefing as opposed to slab. She also has a bow thruster (useful on these 39's when going astern), better upholstery and an epoxied bottom.

Greek one needs new sails, decks, rigging, bow-thruster, epoxy treatment, maybe inmast reefing.

What do people think the likely cost of the works to bring the Greek one up are? I think about £20k, plus the transport back. There is also potentially VAT due......

Thoughts appreciated!

The well maintained boat will probably end up being a lot cheaper.
