Just back from our trip to Lefkas. We spent 3 days in Lefkas looking at yachts and speaking to expat sailors. Wandering around marinas speaking to people is a great source of info for a couple of would be cruising sailors. Someone recommended Keven Whittle, a local brit live aboard and highly qualified yacht surveyor
The broker we went to visit, Williams & Smithells, were very good. First Sarah and then Stephen, (the Director), took us to view the yachts. They were vey “Up front” about the boats and their histories.
We looked at 4 yachts and picked a Beneteau 445. We put in our offer the afternoon before we left. Had a text from the broker whilst driving back home from Stanstead Airport. Offer accepted!
Suddenly it’s getting real.
