Discover SYH

Founded in 1967, Suffolk Yacht Harbour has evolved from flooded farmland to a thriving hub for local and visiting yachtsmen.

The site was originally developed so owners could reach their boats dry-footed instead of using a dinghy.  Over the years, SYH has transformed into one of the premier marinas in the UK.


Electric Vehicle Charging

SYH has two electric vehicle charging points located at the end of the reception building.  All marina users are welcome to use the service, payment is via the EV Driver app.


Classic Regatta

SYH’s annual classic regatta is the leading classic yacht racing event on the east coast.  Two days’ racing in nearby river estuaries and bays are complemented by a lively social scene ashore.



Situated on the River Orwell at Levington,  SYH is two miles from the A14 between Felixstowe and Ipswich.  The marina is accessible at all states of the tide.


Modern Facilities

SYH offers newly-renovated shower and toilet facilities that have been inspired by those in a boutique spa.  With heated floors and mirrors, efficient ventilation and vaulted ceilings, the buildings are light and airy. 


Haven Ports Yacht Club (HPYC)

A warm welcome awaits members and visiting yachts at SYH’s onsite sailing club.  Based in an LV87 lightship, HPYC is the ideal spot for drinks and delicious food in a waterside setting.


Area of outstanding natural beauty

The wildlife-rich estuary of the River Orwell forms part of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  The nearby mudflats and salt marshes are a haven for wading and migrating birds.  Picturesque walking routes take in the river landscape and surrounding countryside.
