New marinas, yard in Montenegro

ADVERTISEMENT

Yacht agent Raki Dragovic of DRM Maritime Services in Montenegro (www.drmaritime.com) shared this information for yachts traveling to the region this summer.

“For now there are no new rules or laws related to the arrival and stay of yachts in Montenegro. We are planning to have one more meeting with the authorities before the season starts and in case of any changes, I will inform your readers accordingly.

“What can be interesting to mention is that besides the already well known marina Porto Montenegro in Tivat, there are two new marinas:

  • Lustica Bay in Trašte Bay on the Lustica peninsula, opened last season (2018)
  • Porto Novi in Kumbor at the entrance of Boka Kotorska Bay, which will be open in May.

“Another important thing to mention is the possibility for yachts to be supplied with duty-free fuel in Montenegro, both privately and commercially registered vessels. Upon completion of bunkering, however, vessels are required to depart the territorial waters of Montenegro. Local customs law does not permit consumption of duty-free fuel within Montenegrin territorial waters. Yachts can be supplied with duty-free fuel in marina Porto Montenegro and, beginning this season, in marina Porto Novi.

“A partnership between Dutch shipbuilding company Damen and Porto Montenegro will create a new Bijela-based shipyard for superyacht refit. It could be open by the end of this year.”
