Porto Montenegro and Worldwide Yachting Association MYBA, have scheduled their inaugural MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show for 3rd to 5th September 2015 in Montenegro.
Porto Montenegro’s facilities will provide the stage for the very first event of its kind in the region.
MYBA brokers, agents and yachts will be invited to connect and do business whilst witnessing some of the cruising grounds for themselves.
“We are delighted to be working alongside MYBA and to be the host destination of this new event concept,” comments Oliver Corlette, Porto Montenegro managing director. “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,” he says.
Montenegro has put huge effort over the last few years into increasing its appeal as a superyacht destination. Its yacht-friendly legislation, outside EU tax benefits (e.g. 0% VAT on charters, tax-and duty-free fuel) and rapidly growing infrastructure has made it a suitable charter base for exploration of the islands from Croatia and Greece.
“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,” says Fiona Maureso, president of MYBA. She adds: “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.”
