The Adriatic haven of Montenegro is one of the jewels of the Mediterranean cruising experience (as covered in the Montenegro InDepth publication). At the heart of this flourishing hub is Porto Montenegro marina, providing an idyllic base for superyachts in the Med.
For the last few years, Porto Montenegro has invested heavily in expanding its marina capacity to cater to large visiting superyachts and their guests. The focus for this discussion, however, turned to the new developments surrounding shipyard facilities.
“The really important point with regards to all of the elements of expansion that Porto Montenegro has is our brand new superyacht repair and maintenance facility,” explains Tony Browne. “We have obtained an old commercial shipyard, partnered with Dry Docks Dubai,the shipyard is called Adriatic 42, we’ve got a 10,000t 180m floating dry dock with a 120t travel lift and enough hardstand storage to cater for the demand we’re going to see.
“So we’re very excited that towards the end of the year that’s going to be opening, we know tht shipyards are really in over supply at the moment.”
A world-class facility nestled in the stunning Bay of Kotor, the shipyard expansion further enhances Porto Montenegro’s full-service offering for visiting yachts.
As ever, Tony Browne was a delightful guest to the Superyachts.com interview studio at the Monaco Yacht Show, and we look forward to hearing more from superyacht developments in the Adriatic.
