Winter berth in Porto Montenegro – Benefits for yacht owners and crew

Tivat is located in the central part of the Boka Bay and represents a modern tourist destination interesting to tourists all year round. The biggest attraction of Tivat and the whole Montenegrin coast is surely the Porto Montenegro marina. After only a couple of years of existence, this marina is one of the most popular yacht shelters, as well as an ideal homeport on the Adriatic. The combination of a spectacular destination and modern marina will offer you a service on a world level.

Marina Porto Montenegro has 450 berths (lengths from 12m to 250m) and provides services: customs and immigration services, berth booking, fuel refueling (tax and duty-free diesel), water and electricity supply, chandlery and local repair/maintenance facilities, refuse, grey and black water disposal, wi-fi, etc.

In addition to the short-term leasing of a berth, Porto Montenegro also allows leasing a long-term berth for up to 30 years.
