Ideally situated between Venice and Corfu, Porto Montenegro offers marina guests a full homeport solution amidst one of the world’s most spectacular cruising grounds. The marina has been garlanded with the most prestigious awards in the industry and is the only marina in the world to be rated Platinum by TYHA in 2017. The award recognises the excellence of the 450 marina capacity, waterfront residences, retail village, 5-star hotel, restaurants and nearby airport and also the unsurpassable dedication to customer service which lies at the heart of Porto Montenegro's ethos.
Porto Montenegro is committed to making your stay as easy and pleasant as possible. The Yacht Assist team is available to help with any task using their extensive network of local and international providers. From customs clearance to provisioning, car rental to local accommodation, the multilingual team is always on hand to help. A water taxi service will speedily relay you and your guests to and from Tivat airport (7 km).
At Porto Montenegro every facet of the experience has been thought through so that unparalleled levels of service and first-class facilities can be enjoyed by crew, residents and visitors. The free-to-join Crew Club invites crew to partake in year-round events, including complimentary access to a ski chalet in Kolasin.
Porto Montenegro is exceptional among marinas in this overcrowded area of the world thanks to its ability to accommodate the largest yachts (<250m), its deep water harbour (16 m), and the availability of long leases up to 30 years. Furthermore, a long-term lease within the marina rental pool will provide an 85% return on sub-leases, regardless of whether the owner’s berth is populated at the time.
The yacht club PMYC is the focal point of social and nautical activities offering 5* hospitality in elegant surroundings, beside the stunning 64 m pool with views over the bay. A growing regatta calendar is attracting international teams, whilst sailing novices can try their hand with a RYA accredited course.
