Ipswich Haven Marina, New Cut East, Ipswich, Suffolk IP3 0EA
This is our primary operating base and where you will find the boats for weekend voyages.
Bringing your own vehicle
The map to the left shows the location of the marina entrance, which is located on the A137 Bridge Street.
Follow the road into the marina and fork left into the boat yard. Continue to follow the road right through the marina, past the Fairline building and Spirit Yachts. Park by the large blue cranes which are near the ramp to the boats on pontoon EE 17 and 18.
Vehicles left in the car park for the duration of your voyage must display a temporary pass, which will be issued to you when you arrive on board the vessel.
The marina is easily acessible by public transport, located approximately 1 mile from Ipswich railway station, Burrell Road and around ¾ mile from the town centre bus station on Turret Lane.
