For the first time, Porto Montenegro will host the 5th edition of The Crew Awards. From 14th – 16th October, the marina town will host the event, giving recognition to professional excellence exhibited in the superyacht industry.

What are the ACREW crew awards?

Since 2018, yachting experts ACREW have put on the prestigious crew awards. The event aims to celebrate excellence in the superyacht industry and reward captains and crew for outstanding achievements and dedication in their field.

The Crew Awards features 20 award categories, aimed to recognise contributions from all crew. Award categories include the ‘Best Charter Yacht Crew’, ‘Best Deck Award’, and ‘Best Chef Award’. Making up the judging panel are former and current senior superyacht captains and crew who are highly esteemed in the yachting community.

This year’s event will have a royal theme, ‘a Regal weekend away and a Knight to Remember’. Superyacht captains, crew, award nominees, and finalists can expect a weekend full of activities in the glorious surroundings of the Mediterranean’s best luxury marina village, Porto Montenegro.

Tony Browne, Marina Director at Porto Montenegro, comments:

“The Crew Awards 2022 is the perfect opportunity for us to have the industry experience Porto Montenegro firsthand, with a weekend full of exciting activities. We are extremely proud to be partnering with ACREW to host such a prestigious event.“
