The Legend of the Marina
From every great project, a legend emerges. This one in Porto Montenegro is rather amusing, perfectly illustrating the modern day era where multi-billionaires unleash their most extravagant fantasies. The designer behind it all, Peter Munk is one of Canada’s richest. But he is also a pressed businessman who does not like to have to wait to park his yacht whilst on holiday! Legend suggests that one past summer, Peter Munk had to wait too long for his liking to moor his boat in the port of Monaco. The entrepreneur therefore devised a plan to create the largest marina in the Med. Today, his dream has become reality in the form of Porto Montenegro. A lavish marina with the capacity to host super yachts in the best possible conditions, including vessels reaching up to 150 metres in length, which often struggle to find their place in overcrowded ports in France, Italy or Greece. Here, there is no issue as regards these giant yachts that threaten to desert Saint Tropez. And not only because petrol is tax-free in Montenegro!
