Award-winning luxury superyacht destination to participate for the third year at the region’s premium boat show
21 February 2017: Porto Montenegro, the Mediterranean’s leading luxury superyacht homeport and marina village, will take part for the third time in the 2017 Dubai International Boat Show at the Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi from the 28th February to 4th March 2017.
Now in its 9th edition, the Dubai International Boat Show brings more than 26,000 international and local visitors including key buyers from across the GCC region. It is considered to be the most influential gathering in the MENA marine industry, making it an unparalleled platform to showcase to the Middle East’s nautical investors and enthusiasts.
Commenting on this year’s participation, Issam Galadari, CEO of Ithra Dubai LLC and Director of Porto Montenegro, said: “We are proud to present Porto Montenegro at the 2017 edition of the International Boat Show. As Porto Montenegro continues to position themselves as the prime European yachting destination, the 2017 edition of the Dubai International Boat Show provides an excellent platform to showcase the unique elements of the project.”
As the premier destination for short and long-term berthing in the Mediterranean, Porto Montenegro currently offers 450 superyacht berths, fit for yachts up to 250m, free 24hr yacht assistance, state-of-the-art facilities, a multi-lingual team and a tax and duty-free fuel station. Due to these exceptional offerings, Porto Montenegro was recently awarded The Yacht Harbour Association’s (TYHA) Superyacht Marina of Distinction Award from 2015 to 2017. The award was open to all Gold Anchor accredited marinas, of which Porto Montenegro holds ‘5 Gold Anchors’, the highest tribute for service and operational standards available in the industry.
Located within the Bay of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the waterfront development offers a lifestyle community for not only yacht owners, but residents and travelers as well. Porto Montenegro offers a residential collection of six completed and sold out properties totaling over 200 residences. Set to open in summer 2017, the Regent Pool Club Residences is the latest development with 62 branded condominium residences on sale.
This vibrant village community in the heart of Tivat encompasses all the facilities necessary for the perfect summer destination. Retail and commercial elements are combined with public facilities, and a waterfront that features wide promenades, a five star Regent Porto Montenegro hotel, Yacht Club and an array of international restaurants and cafés.
The decision to launch these seasonal routes came as a direct response to customer demand and feedback for more leisure destinations on the flydubai network. flydubai will be the first carrier offering direct flights to “the fashionable destination” Tivat, Montenegro as well as to Qabala and the first from Dubai to Batumi. These countries have made it extremely easy for GCC nationals to enter as visas aren’t required while UAE residence will receive visas on arrival.
For GCC travellers, flydubai announced this February the launch of their direct flight to Tivat, following a successful promotional trip that was held in October 2016 in partnership with Porto Montenegro. Due to popular demand for this route, there will be two weekly flights offered on Mondays and Fridays from 23 June to 25 September 2017.
In addition to the growth of easily accessible flight routes, UAE residents and nationals as well as Kuwaiti and Qatari nationals have been exempted from visa requirements to visit Montenegro.
Porto Montenegro will be located at stand S-34, which will be located in the Super Yacht Pavilion.
