I'm trying to make an overseas purchase and the seller (Christian Derefat) prefers to use BIC IBAN for a wire transfer.  I have no idea where to start.  Does anyone have any info or has done it before?

get his IBAN & transfer numbers and and go to your bank (try to have these printed out in an email from C. in case the numbers are wrong then they are from him not you transcribing them) need the international transfer department....
probably going to cost you about 25-30$ or so to do it....qnd about 3-4 days to process....

i prefer paypal...INSTANT and you can pay in the receivers monetary units so there is also no transfer fees....

Yeah, I would also encourage you to do it via PayPal.  Transferring money in the EU is easy, but from the's expensive.  You don't want to spend half the cost of the sail on sending the payment.

I could get someone from Holland to take the money via PayPal and then send it on via a bank to bank transfer to Chrisitiaan.  Let me know if you need some help hooking this up.  Actually, now that I think of it...I could probably do it for you as well.  My wife and I both have active NL accounts, as well as a joint one. 

Talk to Christiaan to see if he minds.  If not, then shoot me an email and we can discuss options.
