Porto Montenegro, a multiple award winning luxury yacht homeport and marina village based in Tivat in the heart of the UNESCO protected Boka Bay, is delighted to receive the TYHA Platinum Marina award. The prestigious award has been given to Porto Montenegro for its 460-yacht marina capacity, waterfront residences, retail village, 5-star hotel, restaurants and nearby airport but also for our unparalleled levels of customer service.
Launched last year by TYHA and MIA, joint operators of the Gold Anchor award scheme, the new Platinum accreditation has been designed to recognise the world’s finest superyacht marinas. Porto Montenegro has become the world’s first and only marina to date to receive the Platinum award.
TYHA’s General Manager Jon White commented: “Our assessor conducted an exhaustive procedure to ensure that all of the scheme’s criteria were met before the report was reviewed by the standards panels of both The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) and the Marina Industries Association (MIA)”.
Gold Anchor Assessor Tony Dye added: “The level of refinement at Porto Montenegro included on jetty air-conditioned waste facilities to prevent odours, on-site fire brigade team, state-of-the-art fuel service and high levels of environmental management. The concierge team are active 24-hours and the crew facility provisions exceeded expectations, especially with regard to leisure time.”
Upon receiving the award, Porto Montenegro’s Marina Director, Tony Browne, remarked: “When launching Porto Montenegro back in 2010, we had a bold vision to become the world’s leading superyacht marina. In re-writing the rulebook for product and service standards we have sought inspiration both from within and without our own industry to prove that a new-build marina in the Adriatic can match and indeed better what is on offer in the western Med.”
Tony Browne also added: “Being the first and only Platinum marina in the world today is acredit to the tireless dedication of the entire Porto Montenegro team, without whom none of this would be possible. At a strategic level, the Montenegrin government should also be recognized for having grasped the opportunities presented by high-end nautical tourism for the local population and for supporting our efforts right from the start.”
