Mohammad and Aty

  Thanks for the advice and for the offer to help find an agent.    I am not sure of what the cost for this service my be but this option certainly sounds appealing for at least our first entry into Greece to insure that all of the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed.   Mostly likely we will arrive in Greece from the North so a suggestion for a Port of entry and of an agent there would be very helpful.  We will be sailing around the boot of Italy from Sardinia and we want to visit Croatia and Greece for sure.  The gulf of Kotor in Montenegro looks appealing as well.  My wife would really like to see Venice so if the conditions are good we will head up to the North end first and work our way down the West coast to Greece.  If the conditions are not favourable for the trip North up the Adriatic the general plan is to cross to the West coast to Croatia somewhere, any suggestions on a port of entry?  We will have a bit over 4 months  this season so we will need to plan to be outside the Schengen area for a bit over a month so I think Croatia and Montenegro are our two options in that regard.  Any general routing suggestions from those familiar with this area would be appreciated.

Best,

James

Hi james;

There are several agents in most ports of entry in Greece. Most agents have counterparts that they work with in neighboring countries. We always ask for referrals from the agent we check out with for the next port of entry for the country we plan to check in.

This system has always worked for us. I find that most good people like to do business with people who have similar philosophy in business.

Let me know where you intend to check in at and I can try to find you a referral.

Hallo Michael,

   Yes, my boat is non-EU so perhaps I do need to pay through customs.  I am thinking of using an agent for at least the first clearing in to be sure that I get everything correct.   I check the link that you provided and also explored your website some, very nice!  I hope that you and Sioned have a good sailing season.  Maybe we will cross wakes sometime.

No, there is no need to have translated papers of any kind into Greek language.
However recently the Hellenic Coastguard here in Kalamata (Messinian Bay) fined a German motorboat owner for his papers.
He has had only papers to use his boat in german inland waters (rivers and chanels) but not at coastal waters or even at sea.
We others first thought the fine was because his papers are not greek language. After some investigation we found out that he has no licenses to drive at sea.

Re: 220 volt exhaust blower replacement

rossirossix4
 

Agree on the wimpy 220V exhaust blower.....after installing a new capacitor (original spec) it works OK but seems about half the flow of the engine fans--others, trying to juice it up with a capacitor have noted burning smells, I think.  The watermaker pump is another device that has to work in high heat.  We have a 220V outlet high up on the forward bulkhead of the engine room and a 220v fan aimed at the watermaker and charger (also used off the inverter or shore power when working in the engine room).  Like many others with solar we only run the generator to make water....so that and the charger are always working when the generator is on.  If others are not close around I open the engine compartment to keep things cooler but we shouldn't have to do so.

Maybe someone has a good, more powerful, replacement for the extractor fan--by definition when the generator is going we don't need to skimp on 220 power.  Or maybe there is a way to activate the engine blowers when the generator is on.  I like the idea of manually switched engine blowers. In hot climates, frequently when we switch off the motor we like to vent the heat out of the engine room and usually open the engine hatch to do so.  In many situations the batteries are charged up and we would still have enough solar to offset the fans.

Re: 220 volt exhaust blower replacement

Thanks Bill- mine is just bungied to the ceiling and puts out very little air now. I think I know why my previous Mastervolt 100 amp charger may have failed. Not sure it had an ambient temp cutoff circuit. It may have just baked over time due to high temp in the engine room during use of the genset. Based on what spare parts from Climma/veco cost, an industrial exhaust extractor fan (available everywhere and cheap) will fit nicely and dramatically boost airflow. To avoid the Amel purist red card, I'll save the old fan for a possible next owner of #422.

Re: Greek Cruising Tax

Gerhard Mueller,

   Thanks this is very helpful!  

   I had not heard about the need for my boaters license (ICC in my case) to be translated into Greek?  I wonder if this applies to the radio license or any other papers as well?    Would you know if the translation needs to be certified or can just be done using Google to be accepted?  

   The Maramu specifications that I have show  the LOA to be 13.8M which is what I have been using.  Amel has stated more than one length for this model however so I want to be sure to use the correct number.  Would anyone know the LOA for the Maramu that is accepted by the Greek authorities?

For entering the first time in Greek waters you need also the so called DEKPA (Cruising Permit).
It is for 51 Euro the first year and any boat length and may be another 15 Euro for handling. Each year at the exact right time it needs a stamp from the Hellenic Coastguard which is for free.
The boat tax TEPAI however has to be payed for each month the boat is cruising and not on the hard or out of order (not used). It is needed for boats from 7 meters length on (16, 25 or 33 Euro/month). Boats with a length above 12 meter pay however 8 Euro per month and meter. So for e.g. the Maramu (15.43 meter = 16 x 8) it is 128 Euro per month.

Re: Greek Cruising Tax

Rink,

    A big help, thanks for the response.  The website you provided also has a lot of helpful information in it.  I would agree that a fine of 1,100 Euros for above 12M is definitely “hefty” so I want to be sure to understand and comply with the requirements.  One question that I still have that I am not clear on is whether payment the TEPAI  can be done as a part of the clearing in formalities or should I try to handle this prior to entering Greek Territorial waters?  

    My vessel is US flagged, would you know if this number can be entered on the Webform without problems?

   Cruising Greece has been a long time dream for the wife and I and we would like all of the paperwork to go as smoothly as possible and we certainly appreciate your help on this.

Hi James

As Mohammad said you only have to pay when sailing / ship out of the marina / out of customs bond . This was a Point of debate. At first you were excluded when your ship was on the hard. Now it is when your ship is in a marina / Harbour and you have your ship in customs bond. This you have to do at the Port Authorities. It is quite well explained at the FAQ part of the website mentioned. 

When you register at the website you will get a form with the appropriate amount generated. You have to go to a Greek bank or post office and pay it. Keep all forms and receipts on board. 

Using the webforms could generate errors. Most likely it will be the ships registration number which doesn’t fit the format. If so contact me.

Re: Greek Cruising Tax

Excellent explanations Rink and Mohammad. 

You can also pay the tax via your usual international online banking (to the Greek tax office using their Iban/swift codes - all explained in the FAQ section per previous link) and simply evidence that payment with a screenshot of your payment or receipt. You will need to evidence payment to get your annual cruising permit, the Dekpa (in addition to the Tepai tax). 

Note the length of boat is to 2 decimal points. The fine for understating the length is the same as for non payment - for a Super Maramu / A54 it’s approx €1,100! Plus the tax due.
