Currently offering 400 berths for yachts 12-180m, it is planned by completion to offer 850, of which 350 will be specifically for superyachts – the largest offering in Europe.

Complemented by five private residential buildings, totaling 130 apartments of which all are sold, a five-star Regent Hotel and Residences, shops, restaurants, sports and leisure facilities, Porto Montenegro has attracted a vibrant year-round international community.
