About the Marina


Ipswich Haven Marina is owned and run by Associated British Ports (ABP) and is located in the ‘wet dock’ of the Port of Ipswich. The marina opened in 2000 and it achieved a five Gold Anchor rating by the Yacht Harbour Association soon afterwards. The town of Ipswich is at the head of the River Orwell, voted by the RYA as one of the most scenic and picturesque rivers in the country, thus making the marina an ideal base for cruising destinations like the rivers Deben, Blackwater and the Crouch. After a recent £2m investment, the number of berths in the marina has expanded to 270 berths of which 30 are dedicated for visitors. As for reaching the centre of town, the marina is not as convenient as the Neptune Marina opposite, but nevertheless is within walking distance and where you’ll find plenty of shopping centre, restaurants, museums and cinemas.
 

Marina Approaches


All inward bound vessels making for the marina should report to the Ipswich Lock Control on VHF Ch 68 before passing under the Orwell Bridge. Vessels will be advised on lock information and the direction of the waiting pontoons if required. At this point you may also call the marina for available berths on VHF Ch 80

Access to the marina is via the Prince Philip Dock, which is protected by flood gates, which may be closed during exceptionally high tides, which means that navigation to the marina will be closed. Entry in and out of the lock is controlled by a traffic light system:

single GREEN light: clear to enter
single
RED light: no entry

There is free flow through the lock at certain high tides and the traffic signals still apply.
