A handcrafted bow of a boat will take centre stage at The Suffolk Yacht Harbour stand at the London Boat Show, showcasing many of the specialist techniques used by the boatyard team.

The SYH takes the stand with on-site businesses Evolution Rigging, One Sails, French Marine Motors, East Anglian Sea School, Seapower Marine Electronics and Mr. Stainless.

Celebrating its half century, the 550-berth marina on the River Orwell near Levington, just outside of Ipswich, serves thousands sailors every year.

The east coast’s largest independent marina has a purpose-built Harbour Centre at its heart and has invested significantly to refurbish the workshop and overhaul the shower facilities.

Looking forward to telling showgoers more about its business, SYH managing director and keen sailor Jonathan Dyke says: “We are constantly investing and improving Suffolk Yacht Harbour to attract more visitors to Suffolk with our first class facilities.

“This year our focus has been on the shower block, which would not look out of place in a boutique hotel,” he adds.
