Poole Property Finders

Poole lives and dies by its harbour, and as everyone knows, “there is nothing, simply nothing, half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”.

The harbour is said to be the second largest in the world, but the real point is that it is far more fun than any commercial port could hope to be. Yes there is a ferry port and a little commercial shipping, but the harbour is mainly given over to boating.

Several marinas cater to every size and type of yacht, right up to 60 mtrs. Rockley Point will teach you how to sail (there is no better way to learn than in a dinghy). Naturally, with so many boats around there are plenty of yards to build everything from a half model to a super yacht.

If Swallows and Amazons is your favourite book, try the waters behind Brownsea Island.

The best way of getting into boating is to join a club. Here is a list, with links to the club’s websites.

The Royal Motor Yacht Club, Poole Yacht Club, Parkstone Yacht Club, North Haven Yacht Club, Lilliput Sailing Club.

Properties nestling around the harbour can be pretty grand with prices to match, especially if they have their own slip. However, £500,000 or so buys a place within a 100 yards of the harbour, and you are bound to be fairly close to a club or marina, so a slipway is not de rigeur.

If money is no object, we can find you a lovely house with its own slipway, pier or dock on the Sandbanks peninsula.

Because Poole is such a lovely place to live, every sort of house can be found, old ones, contemporary ones, tall, low, super and simple.
