September 2011 – Caridea

CarideaA never ending need for tender vessels in Gladstone Harbour has led to AB Marine Services purchasing another polycraft to be primarily utilised as a dry hire vessel for the construction activities on the water. The polycraft ‘Caridea’ looks to be well used in the harbour.



June 2011 – Volunteer Rescue

AB Marine ServicesAB Marine Services volunteered its services to the Water Police and Search and Rescue teams when a tug boat capsized in the Gladstone Harbour and manpower was needed to search for a missing crewman.


April 2011 – Sponsorship

Image With such a successful 2010 Boyne Tannum Hookup, AB Marine Services couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sponsor this event again. This year however we are sponsoring the Hookup as a silver level sponsor and are sponsoring the prize of camper trailer (one of many great prizes). Looking forward to another successful event this year.


September 2010 – Fleet Expansion

Fleet ExpansionThe AB Marine Services’ fleet of vessels continues to expand with the purchase of another polycraft ‘Penaeus’. A tidy 4.5m boat which will be great for shallow water work and calmer waterways such as dams, rivers and creeks.


June 2010 – Custom built boat delivered

ScyllaAB Marine Services takes deliver of its brand new, custom built 6m work vessel ‘Scylla’. After consulting and contracting local boat building business Rambla, we have designed a boat specially made for small charters, research and crew transfers.

I first started using AB Marine Services a number of years ago and have continued to do so ever since. A prompt response to urgent matters plus safe and reliable work ethic from the AB team has kept our personnel and operations on track.  Peter Neven, Work Co-ordinator

Sandpiper Ecological Surveys has used AB Marine Services to conduct shorebird surveys at various sites on the Curtis Coast over the past two years. Regardless of whether we are working in Port Curtis, at the northern end of Curtis Island or in Port Alma, AB Marine are always on-time and, most importantly, their skippers are familiar with local conditions which is critical when working in shallow tidal waters. We have often consulted Adam and his crew about weather and tide conditions and have been provided with honest and accurate information. Adam and his team have always been courteous to Sandpiper staff and interested in the work being undertaken, even spotting the occasional shorebird. I have no hesitation recommending AB Marine Services to any organisation that needs to undertake aquatic-based surveys or research along the Curtis Coast. I certainly intend to use AB Marine whenever working in the Curtis Coast region.

I have been out with AB Marine more than ten times in the past year for project work in the Gladstone area. The staff are highly skilled, helpful and flexible and ensure our surveys run smoothly. I would always choose AB Marine as their service and local knowledge is second to none, and recommend them to anyone without hesitation! Jess – Wildlife Biologist

Major Ian Culloden

The purpose of this is to thank you and your staff for the support provided to me and the combined DSTO/US team. I believe that we all agree, your vessel's master on 'Scylla' became a very valued member of our team; above and beyond simply driving a boat. If I'm asked about marine support I'll certainly recommend AB Marine Services. The service was exemplarity. Major Ian Culloden, Defence Science and Technologies Organisation
