More notes about the marina

The marina of Porto Montenegro lies at the town of Tivat at the head of the gulf of the same name on the coast of Montenegro, around two miles S of the entrance to the Gulf of Kotor further inland. Formerly a naval shipyard named Arsenal, which fell into disuse after the Yugoslav Wars and the decline of the SFR Yugoslav Navy, the site was bought by Canadian businessman Peter Munk and transformed into a luxury yacht marina and a waterfront community, which caters to the needs of growing community of superyacht owners. Tivat’s position, together with the proximity of Tivat Airport, makes it a favourable location for a marina. The marina has berths for 650 yachts, 150 of them super yachts, up to 150m long. The waterfront community behind the main docks features about 250 condo units, conference centre, a market square, an art gallery, a museum, a sports complex and 10,000 square metres of retail space, including a supermarket and a department store. A Four Seasons 5 star hotel is almost complete (May 2013).

Communication

Call Porto Montenegro on VHF channel 71.

Navigation

The approach is easy. As you head E down Tivatski Zaliv (Gulf of Tivat) look for the huge crane painted with red and white horizontal stripes that marks the marina. When close to the marina keep an eye out for the pilings for the marina's expansion. They are marked as isolated danger marks

Berthing

Assistance is available from the helpful staff, who all speak perfect english. Tivat is an all year port of entry. You can complete all paperwork at the marina. On approach and arriving from outside of Montenegro, ask the staff if you should go to the customs quay or straight to the berth. If you go to the berth, the marina staff will deal with all the paperwork.
