Porto Montenegro, the Mediterranean’s leading luxury yacht homeport and marina village, was awarded a TYHA Marina Award in 2017 at the London Boat Show. This year, the port is up for nomination yet again and with a wide range on offer for crew and guests, the port is an excellent location for yacht crew to be based this winter.
With its specific infrastructure, Porto Montenegro caters to the needs of the largest yachts, their owners, guests and crew with state-of-the-art facilities. In addition to 450 berths, the marina has 220 luxury apartments, 60 units of ground-floor retail, 30 restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and amenities, and a five-star Regent Hotel with over 80 luxury suites and apartments.
Superyacht Marina Of Distinction
As of 2017, Porto Montenegro holds five ‘Gold Anchors‘ – the highest accolade for service and operational standards available in the industry. Porto Montenegro was voted for by boat owners and berth holders to win the ‘Superyacht Marina of Distinction’ award for the timeframe of 2015 to 2017. Porto Montenegro was the first marina to win this award.
The Gold Anchor award scheme has been auditing marinas throughout the world for over 25 years and is well known as a credible measure of marina quality. Any rated marina will have been subject to a series of rigorous tests including a marina audit, mystery shoppers and customer questionnaires.
Jon White, General Manager of The Yacht Harbour Association says:
“2017 saw the launch of the accolade Marina of Distinction. This honour distinguishes a marina with over three consecutive years of continual customer service excellence, as voted for by its customers in the Marina of the Year competition. To qualify, marinas must rank a category finalist over three consecutive competitions. On the third year, they receive the title of Marina of Distinction. The first ever superyacht marina to receive this honour is Porto Montenegro.”
The Marina was also awarded ACREW’s prestigious ‘World’s Best Superyacht Marina’ in 2021, part of the annual Superyacht Business Awards.
With this award, ACREW’s network of around 15,000 Captains and Crew Members vote for the superyacht businesses that deserve global recognition. As the winner of the Best Superyacht Marina Award, it is recognised that Porto Montenegro consistently provides the highest level of services and facilities to Superyacht Captains & Crew and assists Superyacht guests to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The marina is up for the award again this year!
An Exciting Calendar Of Activities For Crew
With excellent services for captains and crew, it’s no wonder that the marina is considered one of the best in Europe to visit. This year, the marina is offering more parties, more outdoor activities and more weekend getaways for crew. The marina maintains an excellent calendar of activities for crew to get involved in throughout the winter and summer months, including hiking, winery visits, movie nights, pub quizzes and much more. There are also regular social sailing sessions and parties held at the laidback ‘Blue Room’ cafe bar, a social hub for captains and crew.
Crew can also join The Crew Club for free, membership comes with many benefits such as discounts and special offers across the port’s restaurants and boutiques. Sports Club access is also included in the Crew Club membership, with access to the fully equipped indoor and outdoor gyms and discounts on classes. Porto Montenegro also partnered with Warsash Training Academy to deliver courses at the specially designed base within the port, so yacht crew can complete further training during their stay.
