Our history

Phases 1-3 1967-1973

In partnership with local boatbuilder Eric Wright, Spear and Stennett in conjunction with John Adams,who prepared the planning application finally attained the consent they needed for a simple, 12 acre facility and in 1967 Suffolk Yacht Harbour Ltd was formed with total capital of £60,000. Three years of incredible 'hands on' labour later, the first 40 berths were ready - and all instantly booked. Phases 2 and 3 followed with the help of outside contract dredgers and by 1973, half a million tonnes of mud had been removed and 170 berths created.
