Police have scaled back their search after giving up hope of finding a man who fell off a catamaran moored off the central Queensland coast at the weekend.

The 39-year-old was reported missing on Sunday night after going overboard while the sailing catamaran was moored close to Middle Percy Island.

Police say a final aerial sweep will be conducted on Friday morning but a report is being made for the coroner.
