About Suffolk Yacht Harbour


Suffolk Yacht Harbour is an independent marina run by yachtsmen for yachtsmen. The unrivalled knowledge and enthusiasm of our staff drives the business day-to-day for the benefit of all those who use the marina.

Jonathan Dyke, Managing Director

SYH is the East Coast's leading independent, privately-owned marina. Located on the River Orwell at Levington, Suffolk, the marina is well connected being only two miles from the main A14 between Felixstowe and Ipswich and accessible by sea at almost all states of the tide.

The marina has 550 berths and additional swinging moorings.

Our own boatyard, maintenance, repair and chandlery facilities are complemented by top class sailmaking, spar and rigging services, electronics, sailing school, brokerage and new boat sales, inboard/outboard engineering - as well as a warm welcome for visiting yachtsmen at the famous Lightship, clubhouse of the Haven Ports Yacht Club.

Any trip to the East Coast should include a stop off at Suffolk Yacht Harbour. And whether you're racing, cruising or motor boating, there's an unrivalled range of onsite facilities and affiliated companies who collectively make a visit here a uniquely rewarding experience.



How it all began


I had been sailing on the Orwell near Ipswich and all the other East Coast estuaries for many years and had tried to come to terms with the problems. But when you have to trudge across a muddy beach to reach your dinghy, and then row some way out into the channel before you even reach your boat, you start to envy people who can simply walk aboard. You read about the new marinas that are being built in the Solent and down at Brighton - all over the world in fact - and you dream a little.
