Wisbech is accesible by boat via the Wash and the River Nene at Sutton Bridge, approximately 11 miles inland. The new Wisbech Yacht Club, based in the Boathouse, has shower/toilet facilities and a bar and the marina has 128 berths.

The new 75 tonne Boat Lift facility and Slipway are stimulating boat building and repair businesses to set up close by and this is making Wisbech even more attractive to owners of leisure and commercial craft. The berth facilities have been increased as part of the Nene waterfront Regeneration Project.

Fenland District Council owns the historic port of Wisbech, it is the statutory harbour authority for most of the tidal River Nene and since 2000, operates Wisbech Yacht Harbour, the first, modern marina facility for over 100 nautical miles, north or south along the UK east coast from the Wash.
