Porto Montenegro in the Bay of Kotor is one of the brightest pearls of the Mediterranean Sea, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. This marina is a must-see for every yachtsman, and we'll tell you why.
Porto Montenegro can be safely called a yachting paradise. This international-class resort provides guests with an array of first-class leisure facilities throughout the year. The marina has all the conditions for a comfortable and safe stay of both small yachts and superyachts up to 250 m.It is not for nothing that it has become home to such beauties as Black Pearl (106.7 m), Trident (65.22 m), Quaranta ( 34.1 m).
Located on the Adriatic coast, Porto Montenegro is the ideal starting point for a cruise in the surrounding area. In accordance with the legislation of Montenegro, loyal to yachting, replacement of the crew and passengers is allowed during the season. In addition, Porto Montenegro is in close proximity to three international airports, all with private jets to ensure that guests and crew travel comfortably. And for even greater comfort, there is a helipad on the territory of the marina.
Berth rental to order
Due to a shortage of berths throughout the Mediterranean and the growing demand for large berths, Porto Montenegro's infrastructure has been designed specifically to accommodate superyachts up to 250m in length. All berth rental offers, including short-term ones, are handled individually based on the client's plans and needs. Long-term tenants also benefit from being a member of the Porto Montenegro Owners' Club as it gives them access to exclusive services.
Full range of customer support
Porto Montenegro has a wide network of local and international suppliers. High standards of service here confirmed by the honorary TYHA accreditation. In addition, a dedicated multilingual team provides visitors with free 24/7 support, including customs clearance, dock concierge and a full-time security team.
Repair and maintenance services
Porto Montenegro is committed to providing its visitors with a comprehensive service with a wide range of contractors, and is currently even building its own superyacht shipyard. Three other local shipyards for yachts up to 30m are relatively easy to reach, including Composite Works in conjunction with Freedom Maritime, which provide materials for the repair and maintenance of yachts.
Duty free fuel
Want 45 % fuel cheaper than market price? In Porto Montenegro, private and commercial vessels up to 250 m in length can refuel at a dedicated duty-free dock, where fuel is sold tax-free and duty-free.
Helping the planet
To keep carbon emissions to a minimum, Porto Montenegro uses solar panels to heat the water on site and drives around the marina in electric vehicles. As a partner of the Seabin project, the Porto Montenegro team is helping to clean the water of the marina from floating debris, including using reusable glass bottles instead of plastic ones. It also has its own patrol boat to protect the environment from fires.
With the aim of organizing a community for the crew and marina customers, Porto Montenegro has created the Crew Club, a great place to socialize and have fun. As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the club also launched an online platform to boost morale and help crews maintain healthy lifestyles.
Activities include the Captain's Cocktail Hour, pub quizzes, sailing regattas and wellness sessions, all of which can be enjoyed online. Other bonuses for the crew include access to an RIA training center, Warsash Academy courses, active sports and entertainment programs, and a lower cost of living compared to other EU countries. In winter, ski chalets in the mountains rented for the marina are available as free accommodation for all ski and snowboard lovers.
We cannot fail to mention the Residential Collection - luxurious apartments on the coast, which can not only be bought but also rented. This complex of seven residential buildings and a standalone 5-star Regent hotel combines contemporary design with traditional architecture. And the enchanting view of the bay and the variety of shops and restaurants nearby complement it and make it even more comfortable and attractive.
Exclusive yacht club
The Porto Montenegro Yacht Club offers multi-level membership packages for its members, which entitle its members to enjoy a range of exclusive amenities: an endless 64-meter pool, daytime open-air restaurants, gourmet nightlife, a nightclub, a fitness center with yoga classes, playgrounds squash, cricket and tennis. And also a sailing club with regattas, training grounds and rowing equipment. For the resident crew, the RYA Certified Center offers a wide range of courses.
