In Tivat, in the bay of Kotor, an American investor (coincidentally the employer of the article's author at the same time) will convert an old factory site of 24ha into "the largest luxury yacht marina on the eastern Mediterranean with over 700 berths.

In essence, a whole new Tivat will emerge over the next three years."
