It would cost a fortune with fuel and time dependant on good weather windows, better alternative would be to trailer it there or ship it there or even perhaps hire a rib when there, but then again perhaps its the adventure of getting there your after.

Via the French canals is the usual route for small powered craft. Safe harbours are in very short supply at the lower end of the bay of biscay, around cape finisterre. Your boat is in no way suitable IMHO.

I also have an A600 and have experienced a storm force 9 in an 8 meter commercial RIB and a Force 5/6 channel crossing in mine. The 8m showed me how safe these type of boats can be and the crossing in mine showed how I would not want to risk a trip like that in a smaller boat. I am no wimp but I would not want to be doing that trip in a 6m boat. Nothing is impossible, but if it was me I would be trailering it to the Med and enjoying the sunshine.

Good luck.
