York River Yacht Haven is a full-service destination marina located at the mouth of Sarah Creek, opposite Yorktown. Our 14 acre rural site is in a natural “hurricane hole”, storm protected from every quadrant, making it a very sought-after home for some of the finest yachts in the Chesapeake Bay. York River Yacht Haven’s long-standing invitation to transients has been generated over the years by word-of-mouth advertising. Whether you are from a local boating area or North/South bound, our marina is ideal for accommodating you. Our transients are offered a safe, secure, and protected facility with a variety of local services and entertainment. York River Yacht Haven is conveniently located only a short ride away from historic Yorktown, colonial Williamsburg and many other attractions! Our Dockmaster and staff continually monitor VHF channel 16 and are always available for docking and fueling assistance. Next time you are in the area, stop in for a visit!

Highly recommend this marina. We originally scheduled to be at York River Yacht Haven for 2.5 weeks and ended up staying a little over a month, due in part to Hurricane/Tropical-storm Ida and a boat issue. Those unexpected events turned out to be a blessing. This was a great and safe haven to be at. Lisa, the Dock Master, and her team were friendly, understanding, and flexible to work with; they made us feel like we’re home versus being transients. Eddy and his maintenance team were friendly and hardworking; they kept the bathrooms and pool clean everyday. They didn’t miss a beat even through the Labor Day weekend. Speaking of the pool, it is one of the best marina pools we have encountered thus far. Besides being clean, it’s large and with plenty of tables, seats, loungers, and fully functioning umbrellas. YRYH is definitely on our list to stay again if we return to this area next year and the future.

Not a bad experience, we were caught in a storm and had to seek shelter, forgot to cancel slip. Messaged marina after explained problem but have never heard back from them. Was charged full price.

NIce Well kept Marina. the Store is basically a west marine, which couldn't be more convenient for anything from boat parts and clothing. the docks are in good shape. the Restaurant was very good, and they had a band playing by the outside bar. The only thing i thought was kinda of odd, was that they had no trash cans anywhere, you have to walk across the parking lot to throw out trash in the dumpster, and that isn't a huge deal but i believe that just leads to people littering.

The dockage is excellent, with very nice surroundings but the men”s restrooms should be refurbished. Right place for visiting Yorktown.

Great location. Outstanding service provided by a team of professionals. Only negative was the material condition and cleanliness of the men's restroom.
