“We appreciate that crew don’t always have a choice in their next destination and so, want to make sure they have the best experience in our marina and Montenegro. Porto Montenegro was recently awarded “Superyacht Marina of the Year 2015” by The Yacht Harbour Association, and the Crew Club is part of our on-going efforts to go above and beyond for our customers. So far, we have had some fantastic feedback” explains Tony Browne, Porto Montenegro marina director.
“Since arriving in Tivat, Montenegro has been an adventure. So far I’ve explored the mountains of Kotor, Old Town Budva, Podgorica, wake-boarding at Tivat Wake Park and had several BBQs and fires on the beach with other crew and locals. It’s great having the teams from Discover Montenegro and the Crew Club to help organise group events and activities – there’s always something happening.” comments Jonathan Wilson, chief engineer of M/Y Renewal 2 – a Sunseeker Predator 115 motor-yacht
