Porto Montenegro Yacht Club Expansion for 2016
Monday, June 6, 2016 11:14 AM
Continuing its rapid evolution from local pioneer to regional benchmark in the yachting industry, the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club (PMYC) has expanded its offer for 2016 by incorporating Porto Montenegro’s Sports Club and Tennis Club into its structure alongside the iconic 64 meter outdoor pool and outdoor restaurant.
Taken as one comprehensive whole, with the eye-catching Richard Hywel Evans designed building as the official clubhouse complete with a private Members Lounge designed by MHZ of Paris, the PMYC immediately joins the ranks of the Mediterranean’s inner circle of elite yacht clubs.
To mark this new chapter in its history, and to bring additional internal structure as the club enters a period of sustained growth, a seven person Board has been appointed with Mr. James Wates CBE as Admiral and Mr. Tom Daniel as Commodore.
Additionally, a dedicated micro-site for the club has been launched at www.pmyc.portomontenegro.com.
PMYC Admiral James Wates commented, “The PMYC has a stunning backdrop to sail against and a first class yacht club with outstanding facilities, we are now developing an ambitious new ra- cing programme to complete the picture”.
PMYC President Oliver Corlette added, “We’re looking to become a reference point for Yacht Clubs in the Mediterranean, attracting a series of international sailing events to Montenegro in the process and showing the world just how much this country has to offer”.
PORTO MONTENEGRO YACHT CLUB
Since its launch in 2010 the PMYC has set out to challenge the standards of the world’s most prestigious yacht clubs. Today, the PMYC is an established sailing centre within Montenegro with a growing fleet of racing yachts, members and international events.
Drawing on the ethos of Porto Montenegro marina, now widely regarded as the leading superyacht homeport in the Mediterranean, the PMYC combines traditional yacht club values and state-of-the- art facilities with a contemporary luxury twist.
The newly refurbished clubhouse is the perfect reflection of this unique philosophy. Designed by Tino Zervudachi of MHZ Design in Paris, the exclusive waterfront Members Lounge has a meeting room and private dining space overlooking a 64 metre infinity-edge swimming pool and an outdoor restaurant.
This, combined with a squadron of racing yachts, fitness centre and tennis courts, alongside a lively mezzanine bar, rooftop restaurant and nightclub, makes the PMYC complex a hub of sporting and social activity.
YACHT CLUB FACILITIES
The Porto Montenegro Yacht Club complex combines an outdoor pool terrace and restaurant, mezzanine restaurant and bar, meeting room with bar and a nightclub. Extending to over 2000sqm ￼in total with capacity for 500 seated guests there is also space for three tenders of up to 15 metres in length for guests wishing to arrive by sea.
The waterfront Members Lounge is a quintessentially nautical space designed with the ‘comfortable elegance’ that has become designer Tino Zervudachi’s signature style at Porto Montenegro. A meeting room with conference facilities is ideal for presentations or screenings, while the informal seating area with its low coffee tables, bar and private dining service, help make this a multifunctional space as well suited to race meets as private functions.
Yacht Club Pool (Area: 600 m2)
Cantilevered over the water with views of the marina, mountains and the Boka Bay, the 64m infinity pool is Porto Montenegro’s star attraction and most sought after venue. Featuring cutting-edge design from UK architect Richard Hywel Evans, facilities at the pool include day beds, loungers, cabanas with shower and changing rooms, as well as full bar facilities and the Yacht Club Restaurant.
Perfectly placed for poolside spectating, this daytime restaurant provides a menu of lunchtime classics with Italian influences, as well as expertly mixed cocktails and a selection of international wines. This informal daytime eatery is open to the general public and PMYC members, featuring a selection of fresh salads, seafood pastas and grilled fish using locally sourced ingredients prepared in a refined yet casual style.
De Gustibus rooftop restaurant & bar (Area: 207 m2 & 148 m2)
An upper level mezzanine and top floor terrace hosts the De Gustibus bar and seafood restaurant with view over both the pool and the Bay beyond. Ideal for pre- or post-dinner drinks and live music the covered mezzanine is the perfect compliment to the open-air elegance of the upper deck.
