Absolutely excellent. They use a sealift, which gently lifts your boat on airbags, have a huge, clean concrete work area, or you can even use a fully enclosed shed. Liveaboard is fine, and they have excellent showers, a free laundry, café, TWO courtesy cars, one being a ute if you need to pick up heavy or bulky stuff...

And surprisingly cheap rates. About as cheap as you'll find anywhere. Deals like - free hardstand for the first weekend, pay for one week get the next one free... means you can be out for 12 days and only pay for 5!

A huge array of services are available locally, riggers, chandlery, paint suppliers, diesel and outboard mechanics, etc etc...

The staff are all incredibly helpful and friendly. The owner is a catamaran sailor too.
