Montenegro Yacht Charter Guide
Nestled between the Adriatic Sea and Montenegro's mountainous interior, the fortified towns that adorn this stretch of coastline are impossible to resist.
Stunning scenery, world class facilities and friendly locals make Montenegro an unmissable cruising destination. Seemingly made for the waterborne, the best way to explore this unique coastline is with a Montenegro yacht charter.
Ideally positioned towards the mouth of the Adriatic, Montenegro has long been considered as a gateway for charter yachts cruising to Greece or Croatia. For the well-travelled charter guest who is tired of the Côte d’Azur, a Montenegro yacht charter through the Adriatic waters offer an exciting alternative. Not only do these waters provide an ideal gateway for charter yachts cruising to Greece or Croatia, the entire Montenegrin coastline, and in particular the Bay of Kotor, has become a playground for the yachting elite.
Known for its clear, calm waters, the cruising around the Bay of Kotor is amazing. Dotted with impressive fortified towns and small fishing villages along with luxury hotels and restaurants, cruising provides a juxtaposition of cobblestone streets and high-end facilities. Vast mountains envelop the medieval Kotor town and provide an awesome back drop, the likes of which are not seen anywhere in the rest of the Mediterranean. Step ashore to the ancient town squares where you can take a seat and soak up the atmosphere. Lose yourself in the maze-like cobbled streets until you find yourself once again at a perimeter wall or by the water’s edge.
Porto Montenegro, which lies within the Bay of Kotor, has fast become one of the Mediterranean’s leading marinas and many cruising itineraries either begin or end with a few days discovering the glamorous port. The state-of-the-art facilities have been specifically designed to cater to the meticulous needs of all yachts, their owners, guests and crew with infrastructure in place to welcome even the largest of superyachts.

“There is plenty to do while cruising along the Montenegrin coast; from sightseeing and watersports to sampling local cuisine. My favorite has to be stepping ashore to dine on fresh seafood at one of the numerous family run restaurants that dot the coastline.”
