As the largest marina in North Queensland and at the gateway to the Whitsundays, Abell Point boasts over 500 berths that can take in boats of all sizes, including super yachts. A number of commercial operators use the marina as a base for their tours to the nearby Great Barrier Reef including the 74 Whitsunday Islands that surround the area.
RPS is the consultant planner and surveyor for the ongoing marina project. Our surveying role has involved set out and monitoring of the piling operation, undertaking hydrographic surveys and volumetric calculations, as well as preparing reports and plans. The hydrographic survey was conducted using a Ceeducer Pro Sounder, Hydropro software, Trimble R8 RTK GPS mounted on a Blue Fin Barracuda boat. The results of the survey were included in an overall master detail plan of the marina.
