Try this: http://www.wightlink.co.uk/travel/fares/index.htm

With your own boat it's about 5 minutes from Lymington to Yarmouth between the speed limits of the Lymington river and Yarmouth Harbour. Probably nearer 15 minutes from Lymington to Cowes (speed limit to speed limit). Probably similar time from Hamble to Cowes.

I did Poole Harbour entrance to Hamble Point in 1 hour 15 mins on Sunday (in admittedly good sea conditions) which, if you look on a map will give you some sort of idea of times and distances involved.

You might get a 2 bed flat in Jersey for that money if you look hard enough!
Average house price currently stands at £480,000!!

But I'm afraid you need to be resident for 12 years continously before you can apply for housing qualifications

Unless of course you apply for whats known as Regulation 1(1)k status whereby "the Minister is satisfied that consent can be justified on social and economic grounds". As a general rule this would mean having to purchase property valued at over £1m in addition to having a net worth that would see you paying over £200,000 in income tax.

We currently have I think 168 1(1)k residents in Jersey- Nigel Mansell, Derek Warwick, Alan Whicker, Ian Woosnam to name a few.

Just recently we let in Tony Buckingham, one of the leading figures behind "Executive Outcomes", the well known private military contractors, apparantly he's worth around £250m. That caused a bit of a stir, having someone with his kind of background!

Poole, Christchurch, New Forest (don't forget Lymington) are West of Southampton and Chichester is to the East (not vice versa)
Doh - didn't have them written on the back of my hands like I normally does

200 000£ in income tax... Is the rules the same if i buy a flat? How much house is it for 480 000...

It sounds like a very interesting place, but i think i need to work little more first.

You can buy any property as long as it costs you over £1m! Although each case is decided individually you probably have to spend a lot more now, £1m isn't that rare at all now.

£480k probably gets you a 2 bed semi maybe a small garden if your lucky. A 2 bed flat has just been sold on my estate for £460k but it did have a balcony overlooking a supermarket and a single garage!

Dead bottom of the range is probably a bedsit/ 1 bed flat in a converted Victorian house on the town outskirts, separated from half a dozen rental tenats by a sheet of 1/2" plasterboard, shared garden, no parking etc. etc - £160-180k

Is the islands taxfree? If you buy a boat from a eu/not eu country...Do you pay v.a.t at all?

Say that i bought a house/flat for atleast 1 000 000 £...
To open a bankacount...? Is it 200 000 £ i need to be a customer.
It´s expensive to buy....but after that...
What´s good and bad to live on the islands?
Is it this kind of rules for all channel islands?

On the West side perhaps look out towards the Chichester area. But there are (from observation) fantastic places all along the coast. Although we don't have the natural beauty to match some of the scandanavian coastline.

Those are perhaps the more picturesque areas but there has been a lot of development in Southampton and Portsmouth for more urban quayside developments. Your choice!

We might be having a bit of a property (actually mortgage availability) crisis at present but my understanding is that this had barely affected the top end of the market dominated by cash buyers! However, I'm not in that situation myself so no expert!
Richard is spot on However his Navigation is Lacking Please reverse EAST and WEST

I doubt it somehow.

It's cheap enough as a foot passenger of course but taking the car over is quite expensive for such a short distance.

It's a lovely place though!!!

£32.00 Southampton-Cowes return for a 4x4 and four adults + you can have breakfast on the way over as you watch the boats

Bloody good deal if you ask me

My folks have just spent a week on the island looking at houses etc and didn't think it was expensive, they also checked the cost of living by doing their shopping, eating out etc and it was near enough the same as where they live now
