I too am planning on buying my next boat in the states and shipping it back to Southampton using Peters & May. Bad news is that i dont have a date yet!
I am leaving Dubai this December and hope to return to the Solent, though there are whispers that i may go to either to the states for a couple of years or possibly Antwerp!
At the moment to keep me going i am planning to purchase a boat at the beginning of next year and be on the Solent as soon as possible.
Looking for something around 30' with twin inboard petrols and resembling a Phallus!
