Fox’s Marina is a small independently run marina on the River Orwell, situated just outside Ipswich in Suffolk providing great value berthing and storage for yachts and motor boats.

The marina is accessible from the sea at all states of tide with no lock gates and is excellently located for access by road (A12 and A14) and rail (Ipswich station less than two miles).

We have a long serving friendly team who give a personal service to our customers. Being part of a large working boatyard means that we have extensive and skilled boat handling capability.

Our Marina is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and with the largest Marine and Country Store on the East Coast Fox’s is well worth a visit.
