We welcome visitors to Sunderland Marina and aim to make their stay an enjoyable one; there is plenty to offer on site, in the surrounding area and of course close by in the City of Sunderland.
We would recommend you call us a day or two in advance; we will always try our utmost to find space for you, the Marina is relatively small and has a high occupancy, we have a limited number of visitors berths, also making use of our annual berth-holders' moorings when they are empty. The maximum size vessel we can accommodate is 40ft (12.2m) LOA.
Please call us on approach to the harbour by phone (+44 191 5144721) or VHF channel 37 (M), call sign 'Sunderland Marina'.
Further information on the Marina's facilities can be found on the facilities page.
On site in the Marine Activities Centre building you can experience the splendid views from the restaurant Marina Vista or for something lighter the Snow goose cafe. If you would really like to spoil yourself there is also S.I. Hairdressers.
A stroll along the Sea front and riverside will take you along a Sculpture Trail, visit the National Glass Centre or enjoy the golden beaches of Roker and seaside resort of Seaburn. Please ask in reception for further information; see what events are happening in Sunderland.
