About our Ipswich Office

We opened Burton Waters Ipswich in 2008.  Located at Ipswich Haven Marina, it is at the head of the river Orwell.

Since opening, we have become the official Yacht Broker for the marina and offer a full range of services, including chandlery, yard work and moorings. We are main agents for Princess Motor Yachts, Bayliner sports boats and Dufour yachts. We have now established ourselves as one of the leading yacht brokers on the East coast with perhaps the reputation for being the leader in luxury power boats sales, offering part exchange . We have dedicated sales water moorings for our brokerage and stock boats, including the hammer head, to cater for vessels up to 70ft. We have two large raised walkways on our sales display area, for easy access to both sailing yachts and motor boats, without the need to climb ladders. Our chandlery offers an extensive range of items for keeping your boats in working order and we are stockists for Gill and Henry Lloyd outdoor clothing.  We also offer a full range of safety equipment. The office is open seven days a week and we employ two highly skilled, friendly and dedicated yacht brokers to assist you with any enquiries.

The River Orwell is lined by beautiful, scenic countryside and was voted by the Royal Yachting Association as one of the most picturesque rivers in the country. The cruising area includes the rivers Deben, Blackwater, Crouch and Thames, making Ipswich Haven Marina the ideal base for cruises to destinations such as Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth, Woodbridge and London. The River Orwell is also only a short sail away from mainland Europe, and attracts many sailors from Holland, Belgium, Germany and France.

This 320 berth marina opened in 2000 and is now regarded by many as the premier marina on the East coast.  Situated in the heart of Ipswich’s waterfront, this ‘five gold anchor’ facility offers boaters easy access to local restaurants, bistro’s and bars and the town centre. There are also theatres and parks all within walking distance.
