xHamilton Island marina is situated on the mainland side of the Island facing Dent Island. The marina is the aquatic hub of the island with charter boats and ferries coming and going to Shute Harbour and the other Whitsunday resort islands. Many cruising yachtsmen and super yacht owners base themselves at the marina while they explore the islands of the Whitsunday Passage. The marina itself caters for every type of vessel. There are 205 berths, all well protected in the case of bad weather and the facilities provided are awesome.
There is a wireless internet hotspot at the marina as well as laundry, shower and toilet facilities. The marina is dredged to a depth of 4.5 meters. Vessels up to 45 meters are catered for and power supplies up to 125 amps can also be accessed. There is a boatyard with travel lift facilities to 65 tons and repair contractors for mechanical, electrical, refrigeration, shipwright and antifouling. There is also a refuelling station with diesel, unleaded and zoom 50 premix. The marina is also home to the Sunsail yacht group and a number of other Whitsunday charter boat companies. The marina is walking distance from the airport terminal so accessing you boat is really convenient if you live in southern states and prefer to keep your boat here.
Boating visitors to the marina are welcome to use all the restaurants and bars and golf buggies are available for rental for those who wish to explore the island. During Hamilton Island race week week the marina precinct becomes party central as the competing yachtie’s celebrate their daily achievements.
