MON­TENE­GRO CON­TIN­UES TO RAMP UP ITS AP­PEAL TO THE DIS­CERN­ING

traveller – and specif­i­cally the world’s (su­per)yachties, in this case. Opened in 2010, 460-berth ma­rina Porto Mon­tene­gro has been a lux­ury hub with a five-star ho­tel, up­scale wa­ter­front res­i­dences, re­tail vil­lage and restau­rants, all work­ing to­gether with the aim of mak­ing the des­ti­na­tion the world’s top su­pery­acht ma­rina. And now that vi­sion has be­come a re­al­ity, as Porto Mon­tene­gro has been awarded the The Yacht Har­bour As­so­ci­a­tion (TYHA) Plat­inum Ma­rina award – the first and only in the world to re­ceive the Plat­inum hon­our. The award took i nto con­sid­er­a­tion as­pects such as air- con­di­tioned waste fa­cil­i­ties to pre­vent odours, a 24- hour concierge team and ex­cep­tional crew fa­cil­ity pro­vi­sions that ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions. This ma­rina’s fan­tas­tic of­fer­ings haven’t ex­actly flown un­der the radar, though – if you’re keen to get into one of the berths or res­i­dences, you may have to demon­strate some pa­tience as they’ve al­ready been snapped up and sold out.
