Another point that the Cook will need to consider is the dreaded survey. Dead easy to throw his dosh down the crapper and its a pretty penny he's talking about.

the boat gotta be registered, VAT documented and insured.
the crew gotta have the correct paperwork and qualifications or the boat may be impounded. Johnny Foreigner Policemen over in Europe don't do things by half measures.
