The International Superyacht Society (ISS) is delighted to announce the appointment of Tony Browne to their prestigious Board of Directors.
As Marina Director of the industry-leading Superyacht Marina Porto Montenegro, with over 10 years onboard experience – 5 as Captain, two circumnavigations of the globe and over 80,000 nautical miles of sailing under his belt, Tony brings with him a wealth of experience. He is also the current Chairman of the Board for the Global Marina Institute, a position which affords him the opportunity to regularly meet and collaborate with senior marina professionals worldwide. Tony looks forward to using these two roles to provide collaborative input into these important arms of our industry.
Under Tony’s direction, Porto Montenegro became the world’s first TYHA Platinum-rated marina. Porto Montenegro’s environmental consciousness has played a significant role in helping receive this award and is an integral part of the Marina’s reputation. Porto Montenegro continues to lead the way and has already implemented a number of sustainable initiates throughout the marina such as, the use of solar panels within the marina, working closely with the Institute of Biology of the Sea, dedicated recycling collection points, free grey and black water pump out, Seabin Pilot Partner, and a commitment to only using reusable bottles for drinking water.
“I am extremely honoured to become a member of the International Superyacht Society Board of Directors and look forward to using my experience in the industry to support the society’s mission and vision for the future. In particular I anticipate opening up new dialogue between the Superyacht and Marina sectors focusing on a sustainable future for yachting.” – Tony Browne, Porto Montenegro Marina Director
