We brought our yacht from Croatia to Greece in October of 2007. We entered at Corfu, Gouvia marina, and were told by the Port Authority that we would be required to pay 20 euro's per meter every 90 days that our boat remained in Greece.
I am working with Congressman Yarmuth to address this problem with the Greek authorities. However, I cannot find any referance to an actual law concerning this charge. If anyone seeing this posting could do some research on this Crusing Tax I would appreciate the help.
The Congressman has promised that he will ask our State Department to investigate once I can give him some hard facts.
