any advises on this topic?
Do you intend to trailer the boat? If so the Italian boats will be much too wide for the road.
It is not a case of the British boats being no good for the med - just that the Italian boats are a bit prettier as a rule.
One British boat that is very suited to the med is the Cobra range - very good build quality and have exported a lot.
