Re: Hello! Newcomer here looking for advice!

Regarding the VAT, yes, I can avoid paying it if I don't register it here and use it as a foreigner (under my Portuguese I.D and passport), that might have some repercussion in terms of insurance, but abusive taxes will no longer be a problem.
My plan is to go to Cape Verde (off the coast of Africa), leaving from Algarve-Portugal, then I'd sail to Fernando de Noronha, that's the tricky part, the rest is pretty much within motor-sailing range. But then again at this time is all a wild guess. seems to have what I'm looking for, but since I'm aiming for ships that are no older than 5 years, my options are much more limited. And I do need some expensive extra gear as far as I'm concerned.
All the help is welcomed
