Porto Montenegro has been awarded Superyacht Marina of the Year 2015 by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA). Tony Browne, Porto Montenegro’s marina director, received the award during a ceremony hosted by TYHA in partnership with GJW insurance and the British Marine Federation (BMF) on Wednesday 21st January 2015.
For the 2nd year running, the awards were open to all Gold Anchor accredited marinas, the highest recognition for service and operational standards available in the industry. Boat owners and berth holders were invited to vote for their favourite marina within each category; UK Coastal Marina, UK Inland Marina, International Marina and Superyacht Marina.
Porto Montenegro holds 5 Gold Anchors, and currently offers 420 superyacht berths, with an additional 50 under construction for the Summer 2015 season.
“The award is a fantastic start to a new year, which holds a lot of new and exciting things for the marina and Montenegro,” commented Tony Browne. “Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who voted for us, your support throughout our development has been, and continues to be, invaluable. Secondly, I must congratulate the Porto Montenegro team for not only delivering a hugely successful 2014, but their continual efforts to deliver the highest level of service year-on-year. This award is a reflection of the years of hard work and dedication that the team has put in since the marina opened in 2009,” he concluded.
TYHA was established to develop the marine industry; supporting marina members of the BMF and helping boat users find quality marinas and marina businesses to improve their operations.
The Gold Anchor award scheme has been auditing marinas throughout the world for over 25 years and is well known as a credible measure of the marina quality. Any rated marina will have been subject to a serious of rigorous tests and customer questionnaires.
