Great Barrier Reef Boat Sales (GBR Boat Sales) began life as Abel Point Yacht Sales in 1996 at Airlie Beach in the beautiful Whitsundays.

Ganada Investments Pty Ltd purchased Abel Point Yacht Sales in October 2007 and bought with it a wealth of experience in business, marketing, advertising, and importantly over 35 years of combined boating knowledge.

The business was quickly rebranded to Great Barrier Reef Boat Sales (GBR Boat Sales), and the new identity and logo provides greater market awareness for customers outside the Whitsunday region.

The company has continued its growth and services to following regions:

  • Airlie Beach
  • Hamilton Island
  • Laguna Quays
  • Bowen
  • Townsville
