The ‘Old Town’ in Kotor is the best-preserved town centre from the Middle Ages in the Mediterranean and is typical of those in the region that were built in the 12th and 14th centuries. It is a World Heritage site.

    Found a spot on at the marina after no response on VHF. The mooring lines were tangled and crossed over but we managed to secure the boat. I kept the crew on board and walk down to check in and purchase our one-week sailing permit (vignette). This is done in the office on the second floor of the port building that also houses customs and port police. It took quite a while with the guy doing one finger typing but we got there in the end. Paid 98 euro for a week for a 44ft cat.

    I was told to go downstairs with the receipt to pay at the bank. The bank only accepts cash, however, there is an ATM in the foyer (Mastercard only). After paying for the permit, I received two red stickers and was told to fix to the port and starboard sides of the boat so they can be clearly seen by authorities. I was also given two copies of the crew list to pass on to the port police and customs (both in the same building downstairs). This whole process took about an hour. We were charged 69 euro a day at the marina. There was a 50% surcharge for a catamaran. This included power and water.

    Reported by Robert Burn – October 2017:

    Kotor is a delightful harbour with modern amenities and interesting Venetian ruins running up the steep hillsides. We cleared in here and went alongside the lee of the main wharf to clear in with Customs and Immigration. We had arranged to pick up crew here and it was all done quite efficiently, and cost less than 40 Euros and without recourse to an agent.

    Later we were asked to move to the marina, where the charge was 50 Euro for the first night. Two subsequent nights were 40 Euro each.

    There were better variety and quality of food here than anywhere else in the Mediterranean. There were a wide variety of nuts, dried fruits and preserves at the markets along the waterfront. The supermarkets were similarly well stocked, particularly the delicatessens with cheeses and cured meats, with the vendors offering samples of their fine fare. We stocked up our freezer and spare spaces for our continuing voyage.

    Our priority was to take on diesel fuel, and Kosmas at Porto Montenegro is prompt and well organised. We took on almost 2200 litres at 0.493 Euro per litre plus 0.06 Euro/litre commission. They also supply other petroleum products, so we take 2 x 20-litre drums of SAE30 Monograde Shell Rimula for Euro 178 which is also reasonable.

    After taking on fuel we have to depart from Montenegro, so our clearances are efficiently done and at no cost. We took the opportunity in the harbour to check and clean our propeller and rudder.

    At Porto Montenegro, there is a larger upmarket marina complex with a variety of large vessels, with Russian, Maltese and British flags with the facilities to service them. We departed Montenegro feeling that we could have spent longer exploring this scenic country, and enjoying the local cuisine.

    We left our boat in Kotor to do some land travel. We found a dock in Muo across the bay and a man who lived on the dock on a small motorboat who leased our space on the dock for just 35 euros a night.
