Adriatic marina Porto Montenegro has launched a new scheme, which allows bertholders to rent out their mooring when they are not using it

Mooring your boat in the Mediterranean can be an expensive business, particularly for larger models that take up a longer stretch of pontoon.

With this in mind, Porto Montenegro (pictured above) has come up with a novel way of helping its bertholders keep their costs down.

The Marina Rental Pool allows boatowners to rent out their berth when they are not using it, meaning they can recoup up to 85% of their mooring costs.

Owners only need to give seven days notice to make their berth available for visitors and if it is successfully rented out the marina only keeps 15% of the income.

The scheme is available to bertholders who take out a 15-30 year lease, which can be sold on at any time at market rates.

Nizar Tagi, marina sales director at Porto Montenegro, said: “The rental pool is a great opportunity for those looking for the security of a year-round berth, but still want the flexibility to cruise.

“We know the costs of operating a superyacht can be phenomenal, and with that in mind wanted to make berthing more efficient for our clients.”

Situated on the Adriatic coast, Porto Montenegro features berths for vessels measuring up to 180m and was recently named 2015 Superyacht Marina of the Year by The Yacht Harbour Association.
