Porto Montenegro becomes first and only Platinum Marina in the world

08/16/2017 by

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.”
