About


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!

A true gem of a marina in a lovely setting on the north shore of the York, just across the bridge from Yorktown. Beautiful facilities, docks, pool, and showers. New laundry facility being installed while we were there indicates continuing investment. On-site bar / restaurant is really good. Absolutely fabulous staff made us feel welcome.

Staff is amazing. Everyone is incredibly friendly and were helpful. Be careful with strong south westerlies as docks A, B and C are exposed. We rarely need help coming or going but needed help getting off B dock with 10-15 SW. Asked for and quickly received line handlers so A+ to them. Note to other cruisers- call the marina and ask if the laundry renovation is complete if you need laundry. We came here needing to do laundry but it’s closed so had to hand wash our clothing. Showers were clean. A HUGE plus is the onsite restaurant. Excellent food at good prices. Overall we felt we got a good value here.

Very nice setup with helpful personnel. Surprisingly good restaurant on site. Good clean showers. Only thing not available was the laundry as they are upgrading facility and equipment

Hey Brian, Thank you for the detailed response. Our on-site restaurant, YROC Coastal bar and Grill, was recently awarded Coastal Virginia's "Restaurant of the Year" for 2024; glad you enjoyed it!

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.

Marina Response:
