Montenegro - the small country on the Adriatic has developed within a decade to a real hot spot of the super and Mega yacht scene attracting a large number of sailors and yachting enthusiasts to its impressive coastline. Investments in major projects such as Porto Montenegro, Lustica Bay or Portonovi are just the tip of a first-class maritime infrastructure in Montenegro. In addition to these 5 star marinas, which are relatively cheap in international terms, there are other marinas in which you do not feel like on a dinghy with a 50ft yacht.

The number of yachts in Montenegro is growing year by year. Of course, this is also due to a magnificent landscape. The bay of Kotor, flanked by massive mountain giants, is not only extremely spectacular, it’s also UNESCO World Heritage site.In addition to some very well-equipped marinas, Montenegro also has some ports, such as Kotor. The berth capacities are here however quite limited. Similar to the northern neighbour Croatia, some restaurants in Montenegro also have buoys or jetties for their guests coming with the yacht. In this article our MSA team will introduce you with top Marinas scattered along the coastal stretch of Montenegro. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a first-time visitor , these marinas are sure to captivate and enchant you.
