I guess this is a bit of a long shot but I am interested in swapping the use of my house and car in the Southwest of England for a boat somewhere warm next year, probably for about a month for use by myself and wife.

I have a nice 4 bedroomed house and a reasonable car (which I would get insured for the swapper). I would be looking to exchange this for a sailing boat around the 40' mark in the Mediterranean, Caribbean or elsewhere.

I have the UK Yachtmaster Offshore (200 ton) licence, and work as a delivery skipper, based in the UK.

If you want an extended holiday in the UK to sightsee or to visit relations and friends, this could be the ideal opportunity.

Feel free to PM me if you might be interested.

I'd think you could do this no problem--there should be someone wanting the swap. You might, though, also look into the websites that list temporary rental houses for folks as, depending on your house and all, you might be able to rent your house and take the money to charter a boat somewhere. Another option for you
