Marina expands in Montenegro

ADVERTISEMENT

Porto Montenegro in Tivat, across the Adriatic from Italy’s southeastern shore, has begun work on its second phase in which it will add 180 slips, growing to 430 by this summer. The marina will accommodate yachts up to 75m. Other second phase construction includes the expansion of existing jetties, additional wharves and a new fuel pump.



“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 mega-yachts that will soon be supported by the new state-of-the-art maintenance and refitting facility.”



The upland development includes 130 luxury residences, an Olympic-size pool, restaurants, bars, shops, and other amenities.
