Great Yarmouth Port Authority (GYPA) is a Trust Port. It is the harbour authority for the port of Great Yarmouth and is the reversionary landlord of the port estate. GYPA employs the marine pilots at the port.

In 2007 GYPA leased the port of Great Yarmouth to the Great Yarmouth Port Company Ltd. (GYPC) for 99 years pursuant to section 43 of the Great Yarmouth Outer Harbour Act of 1986. The construction of the outer harbour was completed in 2010.

As a result of this transaction, GYPC became the owner and operator of the port business and the employer of the management and staff at the port previously employed by GYPA (with the exception of the marine pilots). GYPC acts as agent for GYPA in the discharge of its statutory duty as harbour authority. As part of the DfT guidance on the Port Marine Safety Code the GYPC director responsible as the Duty Holder for Marine Safety is Mr Richard Goffin, Port Director, Peel Ports Great Yarmouth.
