I'd appreciate any advice or information on keeping a yacht in a French marina or boatyard. From what I hear it is much cheaper. As I live in Kent I am looking at Calais and Boulougne, but would be interested in hearing from elsewhere, especially if you have direct knowledge. What about bureaucratic problems, such as insurance, registration and VAT? If you keep the boat there 12 months a year does it need to be registered in some way? Thanks in advance for any information.
