Testimonial

Upon arriving at Soldiers Point marina, where storage of my beloved boat was to take place, I was greeted with an unexpected degree of friendliness and professionalism. The marina’s manager (Darrell Barnett) promptly showed me where my boat was to be stored in a secure fenced area with a key for unlimited access. Facilities such as hoses, power etc was also shown to us as well as a tour of the marina’s extensive facilities.
This beautiful facility is located on the western side of Soldiers Point out of the prevailing winds (which at the time were quite strong some days) meaning calm conditions in which to berth, have a quite drink etc.
I would truly recommend Soldiers Point and if you have a boat regardless of what size consider the Soldiers Point Marina. You won’t be disappointed, I wasn’t.
