Porto Montenegro Marina is part of a larger regeneration project in the Bay of Kotor — the largest natural harbour in the Adriatic Sea. Kotor itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site with a walled city. The marina is designed to accommodate more than 150 super yachts in berths 30m-100m long, plus 600 berths for smaller vessels, serving the high-end residential, commercial, leisure and hotel projects that complete the development. Our structural, marine and services engineers have been working on this ongoing project.
The marina will consist of seven jetties, the longest of which is 250m in length and 25m wide. The smallest, which was completed first, features palm trees on its deck, imported from Spain. It also features hand carved stone paving, curbing of black basalt imported from China, and water features created from Mexican olive grinding stones.
The scope of works we have undertaken includes the design of the new fixed pier structures, modifications to the jetties that were existing on the site, the specification of mooring chains and anchors, and landscaping. The marina area includes the Porto Montengro Yacht Club and some retained features, such as an old dock crane.
