I would say your boat is more than capable. Have you done any sort of training as the main factor would be your navigation. If you do not feel confident then it may be worth your while to hire a professional skipper to deliver the boat for you. If you think this is an option then please PM me and if I cannot do it then I know people who can.

Milan to the coast (Genoa?) might be interesting by boat........ If you have to stick it on a truck for that part of the journey, it may be best to truck it the whole way. Have fun..

Thanks for the fast reply's !

I'm a "good" skipper ! Whe have much navigation on board, and of course whe check all the safety products. I think the navigation is no problem ! When whe cant find the way whith the gps, whe can drive near the coast (beach....)

For us importnat to now are :

The distance from genoa to alicante ! how much days i need for the trip ?
The fuel, whe have 3000 liter. Are this quantity enough ?

Which documentation whe need for this trip (international valg letter ?) or ??

And when whe need more crew, whe ask u all !!

Thanks

Still, I see what you say...

It is about 600 NMiles.
Easy run in two days.
Your fuel tank should be sufficient if you start off with it full-but just in case, you can always stop at Palma, Mallorca to refuel as you pass close by.
It is almost a straight line so you may be tempted to do it in one run.
