Porto Montenegro and MYBA The Worldwide Yachting Association are excited to announce the inaugural MYBA Pop-up Superyacht Show. The event will be hosted by the breath-taking Montenegro yacht holiday destination, nestled in the Eastern Mediterranean, from September 3 to 5, 2015.
“We are delighted to be working alongside MYBA and to be the host destination of this new event concept. It will be a great opportunity to showcase the exceptional conditions Montenegro offers to superyachts where we are investing significantly to create a new commercial centre for the superyacht industry,” explains Oliver Corlette, Porto Montenegro Managing Director.
Fiona Maureso, President of MYBA, agrees that this promises to be a very exciting event: “Yachts that are finishing up the summer season in the Adriatic or planning on wintering in Porto Montenegro will find the timing and location of this event very convenient and, for brokers, this will be a wonderful chance to inspect charter and brokerage yachts in a stunning location that they may not be familiar with yet. We’re keeping the programme under wraps for now, but rest assured that the social events and networking opportunities will be amazing!”
Over the last few years, Montenegro has firmly established its position as the new superyacht hotspot of the Mediterranean. It has become an advantageous superyacht charter base, thanks to its yacht-friendly legislation, outside EU tax benefits (e.g. 0% VAT on luxury yacht charters, tax-and duty-free fuel) and rapidly growing infrastructure. Moreover, Montenegro boasts more than 4,000 islands which line the coast from Croatia to Greece.
Thanks to its state-of-the-art facilities, Porto Montenegro is undoubtedly the perfect venue for the very first event of its kind in the region, where MYBA brokers, agents and yachts are invited to connect and do business in one of the world’s most fascinating cruising grounds.
The MYBA Pop-up Superyacht Show is open to all MYBA-registered yachts over 20m, charter agents and brokers. MYBA Members, YACHTFOLIO subscribers and MYBA EContract subscribers, will automatically be accepted. Porto Montenegro marina has berths for yachts measuring up to 180m in length, so there is no restriction on yacht size.
