What our berth holders say

We pride ourselves on our marina facilities at Sutton Harbour, situated in the very heart of Plymouth, where the city meets the sea. We boast an enviable location with superior facilities and excellent customer service. If you’re looking to visit us this summer, take a look at what some of our berth holders have to say…

Berth holder facilities

All berths are fully serviced with local utility connections and nearby fuel and pump-out facilities, as well as 24hr access. Our award-winning marina is monitored by our onsite personnel and 24hr CCTV, there is also the benefit of our harbour lock gates, providing unrivalled shelter and protection for all boats.

“The lock gates keep us totally sheltered and it stops the wave movement. Two years ago it was a force 10 or 11 and we slept alright and didn’t even feel it! We’ve recommended the marina to a few people, it’s safe, secure, and it’s the only marina in the city itself.” Martin Harper

The lock is staffed 24hrs a day with access available upon request and a free flow period of up to three hours either side of high tide when locking through is not required. Our marina offers berths for a range of vessels up to 30metres including mono, multi hull and personal watercraft.

Things to do around the marina

Sutton Harbour 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, boutiques, cinemas, theatres and galleries in a charming nautical village – Plymouth’s historic link between the city and the sea. 

“It’s really lovely being in a city and what the city offers, the Theatre Royal is amazing and within walking distance. The contrast of what the marina offers is incredible, it’s all on your doorstep”. Rita and Darren

Midway along the Devon and Cornwall coastline, Sutton Harbour Marina provides superior access to the UKs best cruising grounds with some sailing hotspots right on its doorstep.

“The location is perfect as you’re halfway along the most visited stretch of the South West coast, with Dartmouth and Salcombe to the east and Falmouth and Fowey to the west, virtually perfect.” David Evans
