THE GOLD PLATINUM STANDARD IN YACHTING
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.
