I will be voyaging to a group of uninhabited islands Deep South croatia in my sealine 410 statesman, a 3-4 bed yacht, I dream of purchasing atleast part of those islands one day, it is easily possible to build a large enough squaters Wright’s style village or even towns

folks who know me have my #.
Post some links and give us an idea of:

1) costs (both personal and for the land purchase)

2) basic legal considerations (is the land outrightly available, what are considerations for foreigners, visas, citizenship)

3) political stability; are any of these lands contended or hostile to foreigners

4) how ready is your boat, now.

5) how much money do *you* have to put up, since you're asking for *our* throwdown.

6) what resources do you presently have in way of tools, etc.,and what is needed?

Peace,

J

Personally, you will need to pay for yourself to get to either London or a coastal city on the way to destination, I can pay for food but contributions are welcome. As for the islands, they are worth millions, however no one lives there, so lawfully no one can claim to owning it.

There are no passport minimum requirements to enter Croatia however the initial visitor visa last for 90 days and additional visas apply for longer periods which I will applying for

We are talking about a few islands truely just out of reach of mainland interest, hardly anyone goes there ever, the nearest large inhabited islands are them self’s a far reach from mainland Croatia, I get the impression nothing has been done there because no one has been interested in organising resources to it.

The boat is more than capable of cruising to the destination, all it will take is to stock her up with supply’s and tools, building on the island will be easy if we have any labourers available, there is pine forest for wood and quality building stone. It will only take cement, rope, nails and maybe a few more things to create a solid large structure

As for finances, I take profits from property here in uk and live on the boat, so I don’t need to work and have all the time I want. My income totals around 5,000 a month, Investment into this community will not be a problem :)

Please read :)

the goal for next years voyage will be a scout of the islands and hopefully the construction of a community centre and homes, there are squaters from Serbia and Croatia participating in this project also, we need numbers to make this work. to create a settlement where squaters can come and go as they please by boat. Build whatever they want. Live however they want. I aim to stay there as long as I can really but a timeline can be focused around everyone’s timeline. I can always take people back to a mainland port at any point if I case of emergency

Keep me in mind for later on if this continues developing, I'm a research conservation biologist focusing right now on integrating wilderness and human resource use sustainably. Always wanted to help build a community so that they're low impact.

I'll be in touch. Not often does one stumble upon such circumstances. DIY sustainability art places are kinda my passion; i'll help in any way I can. At the moment my timeframes seem to coincide with yours. DM me if you want to further discus logistics and how people can help.

Adverse Possession is exceedingly, exceedingly tricky.

Not to be too blunt, but YOU are asking others to take a HUGE risk on something you do not appear to be expert upon, but are proposing be sucessfully performed by the grace of luck.

What YOU need to do is go out NOW & BEGIN the process which will establish color of title, chain of title, and the date at which your claims began.

Also,how are you proposing this title be taken?
In your personal name or that of a foundation or some such?
You said PURCHASE in your original post NOT squat without title,so your first post us effectively *false*.

Why would you say something like that, then change the fucking conditions??

If not outrightly sketchy, def outrightly foolish & indicative of inexperience.

I'm not upset over the proposal of squatting, but you said purchase, and then squat, and then.. then.. that these islands are worth millions..
I'm not saying it isn't possible, but do stuff in the right order..
1) begin to establish your claim.
Find precedent & requirements..
Get KNOWLEDGE, not just ideas.
2) do some searching on current arial and satellite imagery.
Look at tax roles.
Don't explore blindly, but get some viable targets together
3) in the US there are deeds known as "quitclaims" which hold no actual authority of title, unless executed by actual property owners, but can otherwise be used to document at least the actual date where begins the "open, notorious and adversarial" possessing of a piece of property against the established title which holds it.
Adverse possession rests primarily upon beieng able to demonstrate that a property is intentionally abandoned, or unable to be utilized as title to it may mandate.
In the US you *cannot* AP against title held by government.
Make sure none of the properties you are suggesting are held by the state.
You aren't going to get stuff just because you want it, so before organizing a flotilla or whatnot, that you *HAVE A PLAN*.

Just throwing money and wishfull thinking at crap is the fastest and easiest way to fail.

Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
I'm finally headed out on the road and out of this state as a renowned painter's assistant in a month. I cannot wait for my childhood dream of travelling as a visual artist of some sort to become true. Hats off to you, Mayosky. Bless your fuckin heart man. Ya saved me.
