Australia: Abell Point Marina Development Plan Includes Dredging
Abell Point Marina’s decision to step in as major sponsor of this year’s Airlie Beach Race Week provides an opportunity for the owner to showcase the soon to be rebranded and reinvigorated marina precinct.
The precinct’s marketing and business development manager, Luke McCaul, said sponsorship of this year’s Race Week was a natural fit for a business that is supporting local businesses and encouraging industry collaboration.
“The development plans include a public access area, upgrades of onsite amenities including 230 additional car parks, integrating walkways across the precinct, associated tourism facilities and recreation activities as well as the environmental remediation of the precinct incorporating the retention basin to create a community park.
“Additionally, there are plans for dredging inside the marina walls to depths never experienced in the history of the marina. With berthing for super yachts up to 60m, this will enhance berthing capabilities while providing real opportunity to strengthen Abell Point Marina’s position as a super yacht destination,” stated McCaul.
