Revamped and open for business!

Situated at Shingley Beach, to the west of Airlie Beach, Abell Point Marina is naturally sheltered from the prevailing southeast trade winds. The massive rock wall enclosing the marina ensures your boat's safety and comfort in just about any weather. Since Paul Darrouzet bought the marina from the receivers about 4 years ago, there has been continuous improvement to the berths and facilities. Abell Point Marina is now up there with the best, and is efficiently and professionally run.
Apart from water, fuel, power, laundry and amenities, the marina also offers several top bars and restaurants, a range of marine businesses and is the base for helicopter tours to the reef. This can get a bit noisy, but the helis only take a couple of minutes to take off and land, then they are gone.
It's an easy walk to Airlie, or to the shops of Cannonvale, but the marina offers a concierge vehicle to help you get around. There is also a dock hand service, meeting you on arrival to help you tie up. Abell Point Marina can accommodate boats up to 60m or as small as trailer boats and is often used as a base for family trailer boat holidays.
