Mediterranean marina undergoes expansion

Porto Montenegro expects to complete an expansion that will nearly double the marina’s available berths from 245 to 430 by this summer.

The marina village, which caters to yachts and superyachts in the Mediterranean, will complete the second phase of its development during the next two years, adding more than 50 new berths for yachts longer than 45 meters.

“The expansion of the marina is not only a testament of success for Porto Montenegro, it also confirms that the Adriatic has cemented itself as an exciting destination for yachts of all sizes and classes,” marina director Tony Browne said in a statement. “The new berth mix will appeal to both ends of the yachting market, especially for the super and megayachts that will soon be supported by the new state-of-the-art maintenance and refitting facility.”

Montenegro’s Boka Bay is on the south side of the Adriatic Sea. It consists of four small bays surrounded by mountains of 1,000 to 1,700 meters rising directly from the water and joined by narrow channels to form one of the deepest natural harbors in Europe.

According to the World Travel and Tourism Council and Oxford Economics report from 2011, Montenegro is likely to be the fastest-growing travel and tourism economy in the world during the next decade.
