Police have called off the search for a 33-year-old man who fell off a yacht in the Cockburn Sound.

It is understood the man was trying to retrieve a tender that had drifted from the yacht on Friday afternoon, when he fell into the water.

Two other men on board lost sight of him and alerted authorities.

An extensive marine search between Woodman Point and Garden Island over the weekend failed to find any trace of the man.

The tender was found near the BP terminal at Kwinana Beach on Saturday.

The search has been suspended pending any new information being received.
