We sailed on Ereikoussa, Kerkira (Corfu), Continental Greece, Ambracian Gulf Lefkas and surrounded Islands.

The contrast with Croatia was big: A lot less sailboats on anchorages (sometimes on the main coast I was the only boat), no buoys, no charges to anchor.

Perhaps it was just causual but I got much more wind on Greece, sometimes too much. On the mornings there was little wind but on the afternoon it really blows hard and for more time than in Croatia (where it blows also in the afternoon), sometimes only slowing down after sunset.

But I have liked and next year I will sail there extensiverly.

2000 euros is not expensive at all. A popular place to leave the boat in the hard is Preveza on the Ionian. For sailing is probably better (there are some very windy summer months on the Cyclades).

On the other side of the bay there are three big shipyards that have an huge number of boats on the hard. Among them is Cleopatra Marina that has a super ambiance (they are really nice) and they maintain with the clients an almost familiar relation. The clients among them act also as a big family, very different from the ambiance on another near by marinas like Gouvia. The prices are also nice too and they have an huge experience in mechanic and in taking care of the boat.

I have been there this year to repair blown up sails and even the sailmaker from Preveza (called by the marina) was a very nice guy that made a good job, fast and not expensive.

They will offer you a free ride to Preveza (that my wife says is a nice town) each day for shopping, they have a small market and a super restaurant and bar, good ones, with free internet and not expensive.

Regarding the problems with your boat they have so much experience that I would ask them. I bet they had already many sailors from outside Europe for a year or more and will know the answer. They are also the kind of guys that will help you wirh that.

Paulo

I'd call a broker, or two, and contact the Greek authorities and get some first-hand information from them. See if it is the same from all parties. Get the legal details (duties, taxes, terms) IN WRITING.

And get them from the source.
Hellosailor I agree in what you say
I am planning to do both ,but I think a
Broker might be the smoothest and
Safest transaction .I was born in Greece ,but moved to Canada when
I was 9 years old.I don't know if there
Are any benefits (law wise)to that

However, if the boat you buy has the VAT already paid in Greece, the situation may be different...you will have to do some digging for a clear answer.
Thanks for info jimjazzdad.
