The nominations are in, the votes have been counted and the superyacht industry now is eagerly awaiting to see who the winners are at Crew Awards 2022 Ceremony in Porto Montenegro, the superyacht marina and luxury lifestyle destination on 14th – 16th October 2022.
This year’s event will have a royal theme, ‘a Regal weekend away and a Knight to Remember’.
Superyacht captains, crew, the awards nominees, and finalists will be invited to attend a weekend full of activities in the Mediterranean’s luxury marina village.
After a three-year partnership with ACREW, the awards will take place in Porto Montenegro, the world’s first platinum-status marina located on the UNESCO protected Bay of Kotor.
Last year, Porto Montenegro was one of the official Gold Sponsor of ACREW and presented with the ‘World Best Superyacht Marina,’ award following their win of ACREW’s Adriatic’s ‘Best Superyacht Marina’ in 2020.
Created in 2018 by superyacht crew representative body ACREW, the awards honour excellence in the superyacht industry, and reward captains and crew for outstanding achievements, hard work and dedication. This year, the celebrations will bring together over 500 captains, crew and professionals from Porto Montenegro and other marinas in the Adriatic and the wider Mediterranean.
The Crew Awards 2022 recognise superyacht crew members for professional excellence and personal achievements, who have proven to be the very best in the industry across all onboard departments.
The judging panel is comprised of former and current senior superyacht captains and crew who are highly valued in the yachting community. Winners are announced during the Crew Awards Ceremony, which over the years has become widely recognised as the most anticipated night in the Superyacht Industry, famously known for its integrity and glamour.
ACREW and Porto Montenegro have partnered with top hotels in Montenegro, including The Regent, La Roche and Helanda and have organised a charter flight from Barcelona, with a selection of packages available for captains and crew available to purchase directly on the ACREW website.
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 first hand, with a weekend full of exciting activities. We are extremely proud to be partnering with ACREW to host such a prestigious event.“
Located on the UNESCO protected Bay of Kotor, Porto Montenegro is a marina village with an international community; it features five-star hotel, Regent Porto Montenegro, private residences, international fashion boutiques and a vibrant dining scene with world-class gastronomy, bars and restaurants, as well as a year-round calendar of events for crew, residents, families, locals and tourists.
Porto Montenegro is a full-service marina, with 460 berths, tax-free fuel, 24/7 yacht assist, premium customer service, complimentary black and grey water disposal, 7% marine-related tax, and an exceptional crew lifestyle. As the world’s first platinum-status marina, Porto Montenegro strives to continually exceed the needs of guests, captains, and crew –making it the perfect cruising base for the season and the most exciting hotspot in the Adriatic.
Porto Montenegro has also redeveloped the former Bijela Shipyard working in partnership with Drydocks World Dubai, which will relaunch as Adriatic 42. It is currently being transformed into a world leading shipyard for superyacht refit, repair, overhaul and maintenance needs, offering exceptional quality and service, which will be fully operational by the end of 2022.
Situated only a mile and a half from Porto Montenegro, the introduction of Adriatic 42 is in response to an increase in demand for berthing in the Adriatic and confirms Porto Montenegro’s position as one of the top marinas in the world, catering to any vessel in the market.
In 2023, Porto Montenegro will unveil their new urban village Boka Place, which is currently under construction. Boka Place will introduce a five-star health and wellness lifestyle concept, SIRO, from industry leaders Kerzner International, which features 96 hotel rooms, 144 SIR0-managed residences with the benefit of 5-star hotel concierge services and 69 private residences, which can be managed by M Residences Rental Management Service.
