Boat Management in Montenegro: Best Gardiennage Service for Your Boat

This post may contain affiliate links. Find more info in my disclaimer.

Rest assured that your sail or motor boat is in safe hands with the best professional boat management in Montenegro.

Montenegro is a fantastic place to base your boat.

Boat International magazine says cruising in Montenegro is “stunning” and that “… Montenegro itself is the real draw: the charming island of Sveti Stefan, beautiful coastal towns and miles of beaches, secluded coves and of course, the still-as-glass Bay of Kotor.”

In addition to Montenegro’s coastal attractions, you can easily reach Venice, Greece and Croatia’s thousand islands from Montenegro.

Tax-free fuel and Porto Montenegro, the first marina in the world to receive Platinum accreditation, add to the reasons why Montenegro is becoming one of Europe’s most popular destinations for boat owners.

Montenegro is also fantastically easy to get to. You can fly into either of the international airports in the capital, Podgorica, or Tivat on the coast. 

If you fly into Tivat, you can even be on your boat in Porto Montenegro enjoying a cocktail within half an hour of touch down! 

You can also fly into Dubrovnik airport, just across the border and get a transfer, or even a heli transfer, across the border.

If you’re thinking of becoming one of the many happy boat and yacht owners who base themselves in Montenegro, you’ll need a professional boat management service to look after your boat while you’re away… and have it ready when you arrive for that cocktail!

When you have good boat management in Montenegro, you can relax, knowing your boat will be all ready for you to step aboard and enjoy cruising around the Bay of Kotor and beyond.

You’ll also need someone who will make sure your boat is safe over winter.

Despite summer’s idyllic calm, winter, even in the relatively protected Bay of Kotor, is another story. Winter storms whip up the wind and swell, and your boat and your mooring lines will need regular checking and adjustment to keep it safe, in addition to regular washing, starting and airing.

Do you want to know your investment is going to be protected and available for your enjoyment for years to come?

My husband, Savo, offers professional gardiennage and boat management services in Montenegro and we’d love to help you with your boat!

About Bluewater Boat Management in Montenegro

When I was a carefree 20-something working my way around the world, I worked as a stewardess on super yacht in the south of France.
