“Since 2010, the PMYC has become an established centre for sailing in Montenegro. It was time for us to bring it into alignment with other aspects of the port, and re-position it as a club of reference within the Mediterranean,” explained Oliver Corlette, PMYC president and managing director of Porto Montenegro. The PMYC facilities now complement the 128 superyacht berths that are already present.
PMYC members will have access to all the amenities one would expect from an exclusive yacht club: a members lounge, bar, nightclub, sailing and rowing facilities, gym, restaurants and a focal 64-metre infinity pool. The Porto Montenegrin sailing and sports clubs will also function under the PMYC umbrella.
Interior design was headed by Tino Zervudachi, of Parisian studio Mlinaric, Henry and Zervudachu Design, who sought to recreate the sense of the traditional yacht club but with distinctly contemporary characteristics, drawing on MHZ’s previous experience with both commercial and yachting projects.
Billy Canella’s, the marina business development manager of Porto Montenegro, also revealed the launch of the Regent Pool Club Residences, with 60 apartments already on the market. “While the traditional cruising grounds of France, Spain and Italy are becoming increasingly overpopulated, Montenegro remains unique and undiscovered, offering privacy and authenticity,” Canella added.
In order to compete with the traditional superyachting hubs an area needs more than just privacy and authenticity. The addition of the PMYC to the Porto Montenegro portfolio showcases the regions development in the key areas of infrastructure and facility provision.
