Boat Buying in Greece! Pt1 EP25





We are last but not least ready to reveal our plans!

Immediately after selling CREO late past 12 months we have used the wintertime longing to be again on the drinking water so immediately after the Boat Clearly show we jumped on a aircraft to Athens and went to visit some buddies and get a seem at some utilized sailing boats 🙂

We also halt in at the turtle rescue centre in Athens to understand about the wonderful work they do and obtain out how we can enable in the future.

Please stick to our travels so we can share the exciting 🙂

  4. What are your intentions..What do you expect to pay? Focus more on the boats! less on the eating.

  6. It is a pity you give not relevant information about the boats you are looking. Why you make this film? No prices, no info, a real pity

  7. If you want to know more about the Warrior 38 check out Mads channel, Sail Life. He has been rebuilding one. Had to record deck and replace all windows and loads more. Would be a huge job if you bought that one unless much work has already been done.

  8. Warrior 38 is the boat that Mads is redoing on Sail life. Quirky boat to say the least. Lots of issues.
    Boat that had the teak deck replaced would raise a red flag for me. What is the condition of the deck and core? Hard to tell with that stuff on. Why Greece? Are the prices real good their or just comfortable buying there ? Having had 2 sailboats already, and looking for a third to buy in 2020, I would say you have to narrow your search down to what it is you want first, and then look at those. There are a ton of boats out there, and you can easily get lost in it all. Do your searching online first, and pick what is important to you and in your budget. Make sure you budget for refitting. It can be substantial. By the way, those leaking portlights are easy to fix. What damage the water intrusion might have caused, is another story. Good luck on your search.

  10. Just for a matter of interest reference to the budget that you had for 2017 ,mooring fees,car hire, boat maintenance etc were you above or below and what were the reasons why it was above/below ?

  12. Hi so good to see you back on and looking for a new boat

  13. We are glad to see you back and soon to be on the water once again. Good luck with the boat shopping. If you recall we bought Shantaram in Preveza as well so we do have a keen interest in the area and what you guys are up to. Your videos are fantastic as well. We hope to meet up with you both some time on the water.

  15. Is it not just called "salad" when in Greece. Haha

  16. Good luck with your boat search – we are much the same stage as you looking at boat after boat.

    I agree with everyone pointing out Sail Life's channel and the issues with his Warrior 38 – I rather liked the Warrior until I saw the number of flaws Mads was digging out.

  17. Why are you buying a new Boat?

  18. Do you not think it's a bit funny you worry about turtles but eat other animals, do you like dogs but eat baby lambs.

  20. I guess I never heard the story on why you got rid of your last boat. Anyways, good luck on your next one. Thanks for sharing.

  21. Have a look at "Planaco" boat yard on Aegina island. I am selling my Oyster 395 Lightwave there. Engine 600hours. Good condition and ready to sail. My phone number 004790211529. Steffen

  22. I must admit I thought you were being a little hasty when you put Creo up for sail. Nice to see you back & looking for another boat. I hope the family issues have been settled and you can follow your dream once again. Fair winds & regards

  23. Are you guys regretting selling Creo 1? Great video and hope you find the one, the last one looks too old though. Thanks and best from Lamma 🇭🇰

    Reply
  24. Really interested in seeing all the boats you guys are looking at. This will be great content. The one thing I think everyone needs without trying to pry into your life is why did you sell Creo? It’s very strange you are already looking but everyone is glad you are back.

  25. hope you get a new boat and continue with the videos 🙂

  28. Hi, there guys, Very interesting Video. Try not to buy a boat that needs a lot of work. Make sure the woodwork is in nice condition, The last boat that you said you liked, in my opinion too old, unmodern and had an ugly wood finish. I'm still a bit curious about the selling of Creo. It seems that you were pleased with the boat and must regret selling her. Did you not think clearly through your decision properly. When you said you come to the end of your journey?
    Your Journey had just begun in a way, So im like alot of your viewers, Dumbfounded, that you were back on land 5 minutes and realised ,what a mistake weve made. Ok we forgive you for not thinking it all through properly. Shit happens. There is probably more personal reasons to why this all happened so quick and its Ok to keep it to yourselves also. For me it seems only like a few months ago you had bought Creo and I still remember those videos like yesterday, doing all that work , getting her ready. Anyhow whish you all the best with the next boat, Make sure shes as nice as Creo was.

  29. Keep well away from the Warrior 38 guys, terrible build quality with several design issues in terms of water ingress into the core of the deck.

  30. The Greek Orthodox Christmas was January 7 this year, which explains the lingering decorations, I think. Sorry to hear of Mr. Claxton's passing. Good luck.
