Abell Point Marina – expect the
‘blue carpet treatment’
Already renowned for state of the art fa-
cilities and luxur y conveniences, Abell Point
Marina has two more exceptional guest ser vices
to add to its bow – a concierge vehicle and a
dedicated helicopter ser vice.
“It’s all part of our bid to bring back good
old-fashioned service,” said owner of marina,
Paul Darrouzet. “For example, the concierge
vehicle will be available for all marina customers
to use free of charge so they can run into town
and pick up provisions or visit the local shops
without having to pay for a taxi.”
For those wanting to travel further afield, the
Marina’s dedicated helicopter transfer ser vice
provides transfers to and from Proserpine
airport and out over the Whitsundays, making
exploring the area a breeze.

Have you edged
your vessel around a
crowded marina and
thought there should
be an easier way?
offer a balance of high
performance with the
control required for precision movement.
Comprised of three main elements, the
proportional control panel, power control unit,
and DC Thruster, the Side-Power Proportional
Thruster system offers boaters full control, even
in rough conditions.
Unique to the Proportional control panel,
the ‘Hold’ function synchronizes both bow
and stern thrusters with the push of a button,
keeping the vessel parallel to the dock, while
the level of thrust is adjusted accordingly.
Normally this level of control would be
limited to an expensive hydraulic or AC thruster
system, not always an option where usable
space is at a premium.
During the month of May, until the 24th,
AMI is offering a saving of $800 off the RRP of
any Side-Power Proportional Thruster system.

“M A N OVERBOARD!” The words
you never want hear. It is even worse
if no one sees someone go over the
side. If you fall overboard the best
source of rescue is from the boat you
just fell off. They just need to know
exactly where you are.
The rescueME MOB1 is the
world’s smallest MOB device. You
can easily integrate it into your PFD
for automatic activation.
With a 7yr battery
life and a 66ch GPS your
position will be displayed
on all vessels with an AIS
chart plotter within approx
five miles. It is unique that it
also reports to your vessel’s
VHF radio via DSC.
The rescueME MOB1
(RRP $449) joins the other
products in the rescueME
family. The rescueME PLB1 & rescueME EPIRB1.
