Police divers will use sonar equipment in a last-ditch bid to find a man missing from a catamaran off the central Queensland coast.

Officers say the chances of finding the 39-year-old alive are slim after a search on Monday failed to uncover any trace of him.

The man vanished sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, when a companion reported him missing from their boat, moored off Middle Percy Island, 70km southeast of Mackay.
