Sutton Harbour Marina

Useful Info

Keep your boat in the most sheltered marina in Plymouth

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your vessel is safe behind protective double lock gates that guarantee depth of water at all stages of the tide and provides shelter from extreme weather.

Below you’ll find all our useful information, including our downloads, freeflow times, and hear about the experiences of some of our berth holders.

Getting Here

Sutton Harbour Marina is located within the historic harbour renowned for its cobbled streets and quaint architecture

It’s the only marina in Plymouth surrounded by an outstanding year-round selection of restaurants, cafes, bars, boutique and high street shopping, cinemas, theatres and galleries in a charming nautical village, Plymouth’s historic link between the city and the sea. 

Midway along the Devon and Cornwall coastline, Sutton Harbour Marina provides superior access to the UK’s finest cruising grounds.  

All of our berths are fully serviced with a dedicated team delivering first-class service for you, your family, and your vessel.

Lock Freeflow Times

There is a free flow period of up to three hours either side of high tide. 

For passage through Sutton Lock, all vessels must contact the lock office on VHF CH12 to arrange for lock-keepers to swing the footbridge.

Documentation

It’s important for new and existing berth holders as well as visitors to be aware of a range of key information before attending the marina.

Our experienced team are always here to help and can answer any questions on the marina and its operations, however, we encourage those visiting the marina to see the detailed information in these PDFs. 

The documents highlight important details on safety procedures, harbour directions and our responsibility to the environment. They also explain our locking procedure and lock dimensions which is critical for berth holders and visiting vessels to be aware of in order to enter the marina via the set of double lock gates. Our Marina Plan can assist you in locating individual berths and we also offer more information on our location and nearby waters.
