  1. Hello Sunny

    We are in the process of buying a Turkish boat from a seller in Istanbul via a broker

    All is fine to the stage of the sales transaction, they want an additional Euros 4750 for th sales documentation. They say we must pay this as a Turkish citizen cannot sell a boat to a foreign buyer without a complex process of export processes totalling 4750 euros

    We feel this might be a bit on the rich side both financially and what they say needs doing

    Can you give any clarity please Sunny

    Could we call you perhaps

    Regards Jamie

      Dear Jamie, it is a long time since I had anything to do with boats but it could well be true that selling to a foreigner is the same as exporting a boat. Various things could make a difference, what flag the boat will be under, where you intend to use it, possibly whether you have property in Turkey as well as other things.

      I'm afraid that I'm not sufficiently well informed enough to give you proper advice. If you know Turkey at all, you will know that, when it comes to bureaucracy, the goal-posts are forever changing, with new laws a regular occurrence. My husband, when selling/buying a boat always used the help of a 'Takipci' to deal with the bureaucracy.

      Sorry I could not be of more help. I wish you well in your transaction and good sailing.
