On July 1st, 2013, Croatia will join the European Union, which will most certainly bring benefits to nautical tourism in Montenegro. Once in the EU, Croatia becomes part of the single custom area of the EU and the owners will have to pay customs duties and VAT as defined by the EU Customs Union – set at a rate of 25%.
Those vessels that decide to stay in Croatia face extensive paperwork in order to pass import customs clearance and entry into the Croatian Register. It can take up to twenty days to gather all the necessary documentation required to register one boat. The others will simply turn to Montenegro, Turkey or African Mediterranean for a berth place. Montenegro’s yacht-friendly legislation offers particularly favourable import regulations, lower fixed tax rates on purchases and income, as well as tax and duty free fuel.

The first Hanse 415 Performance has been cruising the Boka Bay for more than 2 weeks now. Her owner had never sailed before he bought this boat, but our team has taught him the basic techniques of sailing and he is now crazy about it, going out with Nika (that’s the name of the boat) on every slightest breeze… Anybody can learn how to sail in no time, and this should never be an obstacle whilst considering buying a boat! The Hanse 415 and her happy owner have sailed all the way down from Slovenia, which has been truly an adventurous trip, where the yacht could show all her performances. The yacht is now moored in the marina Porto Montenegro and will stay here for the whole year.
Now more about this little jewel: the Hanse 415 has an extended water line by 60 centimetres than that of its predecessor with the same sail area, which increases her hull speed. But what makes her so special in the mean of speed are the following features of the 415 Performance Package:
The boat will most probably show her performances on upcoming regattas, and she is also available for test sail, so if you wish to test her in order to convince yourself of the Hanse quality and performances, contact us and we will make it possible for you.
