Marina


Pre-Arrival Information

The Marina comprises 507 wet berths and can accommodate vessels up to 60m. Each berth allocation has access to fresh water and shore power. Three-phase power requirements can be catered for, on request. Premium services available include after-hours security patrols, pump-out facilities, 24 hour fuel (including fast flow diesel and credit card payment facilities), CCTV at marina gates and secure gate access. The marina itself is protected by a unique rock wall breakwater and is cyclone rated – making Abell Point Marina the perfect place for both long and short term stays.

Berthing

Berths are available from 12noon to 11am (on day of departure). Should you require an earlier berthing time please make arrangements with our reservations team, who will endeavour to meet specific berthing requirements whenever possible.

Every morning the friendly customer service team walk the marina to confirm departing vessels, or ascertain is vessels intend on extending their stay. From this information we then allocate the arrivals for the day. Due to the high volume of vessel traffic in the marina, particularly during peak period, occasionally there may be a need for temporary arrangements to be made.
