Now under new ownership from mid-last year, Abell Point Marina is receiving a $10 million dollar facelift. Just some of the works include a large dredging program starting next month to clear out sludge and improve navigable channels. Extension of licensed cafés and restaurants, a community parkland, upgrade of guest facilities and amenities are all planned. Plus there will be a much needed revival of the Abell Point Yacht Club. Superyachts haven’t been forgotten with and an additional two Superyacht berths capable of handling yachts up to 60 metres.
As well as these improvements and development of shore-side infrastructure, Abell Point Marina is committed to servicing the customer, whether arriving in a tinny or a superyacht. They have a dedicated concierge service on the docks welcoming vessels, grabbing lines, filling gas bottles and delivering daily papers. Anything else you need to keep your boating life on track? Just ask – I’m pretty sure they’ll be able to point you in the right direction if they can’t provide marine service, facilities or advice. Customer service, it’s such a neglected art, so it’s a real pleasure to see a business who understands the value of meeting customer needs.
Abell Point Marina is also rejuvenating a whole new marina brand, starting with a new website to showcase the rejuvenated marina precinct. Have a look at the photo above which gives an indication of the vast improvements in the pipeline.
Abell Point Marina was always a pretty fab jumping off point for exploring the Whitsundays. It looks like it’s about to get a whole lot better! Just in time for best cruising season too as the we bid farewell to the wet season and welcome the warm winter tropical sun. Hello sunshine!
It’s time I popped in again to check out Airlie Beach (which has also undergone a major upgrade in the main street) – what about you?
