Porto Montenegro has unveiled its calendar for the upcoming yachting season.

“We are happy to share our plans for another season,” says Danilo Kalezic, Senior PR and Marketing Manager at Porto Montenegro. “Our entire team worked really hard to encapsulate, arguably, one of the most action-packed and dynamic calendars in the project’s history. At the same time, it is well-balanced and diverse including various events and competitions both on water and on shore. From regattas to festivals, and from hackathon to business conferences, we have a lot to offer to our owners, clients, and guests.”

Perfect sailing

Set in the middle of the Mediterranean in some of the most sought after cruising grounds is the small relatively undiscovered gem, Montenegro. The pristine, unadulterated splendour of this country is like no other. It lies between Italy and Greece and shares boarders with Serbia and Croatia. Its unspoilt interiors and dramatic mountains slip into the deep azure waters of the Adriatic, along 295 kilometres of coastline. 

Despite its natural beauty and central location, Montenegro has only recently experienced an upsurge in the popularity it enjoyed in the 1950s and 60s. Then a haven for film stars such as Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Kirk Douglas, 21st century Montenegro is again, re-establishing itself as a high-end destination.

“Still undiscovered gem of this part of Europe, it is waiting to be discovered and enjoyed in as one of the most memorable stops on your charter journey,” says Tony Browne, Marina Director at Porto Montenegro. “Moreover, our marina is just a day’s sail from some of the Mediterranean’s best cruising grounds, including over 4000 islands dotted along the coast from Croatia down to Greece – making it the ideal starting point for yacht charters.”

In 2017, Porto Montenegro received a prestigious Superyacht Marina of Distinction award and 5 Golden Anchors from The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) for the high-quality facilities and services provided. Porto Montenegro has become the world’s first marina to receive the Platinum award from TYHA and the Marina Industries Association, joint operators of the Gold Anchor award scheme.
