“Located along the east shore of the Adriatic in some of the world’s most spectacular cruising grounds, Montenegro is rapidly becoming a favourite summer yachting and charter destination. And Porto Montenegro, with its 450 slips, upscale marina village and five-star hotel, is emerging as the host of a series of events this summer, including regattas, a fashion show, concerts, and art exhibitions.

Montenegro has a long and rich history, dating to the Roman Empire, Byzantine rulers, Ottoman invaders and more recently the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and its subsequent breakup. Montenegro declared its independence in 2006, and the new government decided to invest in tourism as a main economic force. Porto Montenegro was the first investment of its kind, founded in 2010 in the heart of breathtaking Boka Bay, a UNESCO-protected site.” (Powerboat World)
