Yachting Boating World: See pictures of the stunning Porto Montenegro, which has been shortlisted for the coveted TYHA Superyacht Marina of the Year Award. It won the accolade last year.
The awards are open to all Gold Anchor accredited members of The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA).
Categories include British Coastal Marina, British Inland Marina, International Marina and Superyacht Marina.
Porto Montenegro won the TYHA Superyacht Marina of the Year Award 2015.
The prize is awarded to recognise ongoing excellence and consistent quality within the marina industry.
Customers are asked to show their support for those nominated by voting for their favourites via the competition website.
Final rankings within each category reflect the number of votes received from each marina’s customers weighted against the size of the marina in question.
Nominations are reviewed by a panel of judges. The winners will all be announced at the London Boat Show in January 2017.
Porto Montenegro has been designed to cater to the advanced needs of all yachts, their owners, guests and crew with specific infrastructure for the largest yachts afloat.
The marina currently has 450 berths.
It also has 228 sold-out luxury apartments, as well as 55 units of ground floor retail.
This is made up of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and amenities and a five star Regent Hotel with over 80 luxury suites and apartments.
Motorboat & Yachting: The world’s largest superyacht will now be able to moor up in Porto Montenegro after the Adriatic marina expanded its offering.
The new berth will be capable of mooring vessels measuring up to 250m, the gargantuan mooring is even larger han the world’s largest superyacht Azzam, which is 180m from prow to transom.
However, with several 200m+ superyacht concepts released over the past few years, Porto Montenegro is anticipating more future demands for mooring even larger vessels.
The new berth dwarfs many other Mediterranean offerings, such as the 135m berth at Grand Harbour Marina in Malta and the 190m mooring at One Ocean Port Vell in Barcelona.
Porto Montenegro has a grand total of 450 berths, as well as 55 retail units and 228 apartments as part of its shoreside development.
Montenegro might not be the first destination that comes to mind when you think of superyacht hotspots, that may be about to change with several recent accolades including the 2015 THYA Superyacht Marina of the Year.
Motorboat & Yachting: Adriatic marina Porto Montenegro has launched a new scheme, which allows bertholders to rent out their mooring when they are not using it.
Mooring your boat in the Mediterranean can be an expensive business, particularly for larger models that take up a longer stretch of pontoon.
With this in mind, Porto Montenegro (pictured above) has come up with a novel way of helping its bertholders keep their costs down.
The Marina Rental Pool allows boatowners to rent out their berth when they are not using it, meaning they can recoup up to 85% of their mooring costs.
Owners only need to give seven days notice to make their berth available for visitors and if it is successfully rented out the marina only keeps 15% of the income.
The scheme is available to bertholders who take out a 15-30 year lease, which can be sold on at any time at market rates.
Nizar Tagi, marina sales director at Porto Montenegro, said: “The rental pool is a great opportunity for those looking for the security of a year-round berth, but still want the flexibility to cruise.
“We know the costs of operating a superyacht can be phenomenal, and with that in mind wanted to make berthing more efficient for our clients.”
Situated on the Adriatic coast, Porto Montenegro features berths for vessels measuring up to 180m and was recently named 2015 Superyacht Marina of the Year by The Yacht Harbour Association.
