Haven Ports Yacht Club

Welcome to Haven Ports Yacht Club website

Our Club House is in a retired Light Vessel based in the marina of Suffolk Yacht Harbour Levington on the lovely River Orwell. We have full bar facilities with an excellent range of delicious food available from our steward and staff.

We are a friendly Club and are welcoming to new members and their families. 

The Club has an active Cruising section for both sail and power,  a successful Racing fleet for one design racing and cruiser yachts and we are always keen to welcome new boats to join in. 

I hope you can find all you need from our website and I look forward to meeting you in the club

Kind Regards
Tony Carter


5 Great reasons to join us

  • Fabulous sailing

    Situated on the River Orwell one mile up from the Port of Felixstowe provides excellent access to all the East Coast, Thames Estuary and near Continent. including locally the Rivers Stour, Deben, Ore and Auld and the stunning Walton Backwaters. The whole area is steeped in sailing/boating history.

  • Active cruising section

    With cruises organised on a monthly basis spreading over weekends and longer the cruising section really does make the most of our location with trips down to the River Blackwater, and up to Lowestoft with all locations in between on the list.  We really do provide enjoyable cruising in company for our members.

  • Vibrant social

    The Lightship is the hub of our full and well supported social program providing a unique atmosphere in the bar and our function room. Talks, dinner dance, club suppers and fund raising for the RNLI form just a small example of what we organise during the winter months.

  • Racing

    Full program of club events for both IRC registered racing boats, locally handicapped cruisers, one designs such as Squibs and Melges 24.  Club members also compete in the Haven Series, EAORA and other East Coast events. We have also enjoyed success at regattas such as Cowes Week, Cork Week and other RORC events.

    Based in Suffolk Yacht Harbour with its excellent road links, you have all the facilities you would expect from a modern marina complex with all tide access and ample parking close to your boat.
