And after a day to remember just hand the boat back and walk away...
Most of us dream of owning our own boat – the premium lifestyle that is associated with sun-drenched days and balmy evenings, enjoying great company and stunning seascapes, with delicious picnics and fine wine.
Stop there – the reality is not quite as romantic as many will tell you – there are two great days to own a boat – the day you buy it and the day you sell it!
So enter the visionary team from Parkstone Bay Marina’s Boat Club spreading the boating love to all!
This is a genius premium scheme that makes life on the beautiful waters in and around Poole Harbour at last accessible.
There are 12 boats in the club’s fleet ranging from 20’ to 25’ and three levels of membership starting at £400pcm depending on the type of boat that suits your leisure needs and wallet.
Get your RYA Power Boat Level 2 under your belt, with the help of the Boat Club. Then it really is plain sailing, just book your boat online – from two hours to the whole day, each member has a realistic quota of time to enjoy on the water each month. And if you want to push another boat out, book the flagship Windy Kashmin 35’ down in Antibes!
Membership to the Boat Club represents a really sociable lifestyle asset for anyone who would like the pleasure of a boat, whose time is flexible and standards are high. It also makes for great networking opportunities as most members are business owners, or second homeowners – it’s a great like-minded crowd. And not all new to boating – the Boat Club has a good number of members that have indeed owned their own boats and now elect to take the easy way onto the water.
Contact Chris at the Boat Club – he will talk enthusiastically about the fleet, and the social calendar which sees members meet on and off the water for fun- filled days and nights throughout the year.
This is a superb solution to boating in Poole, just book online, order your hamper – perhaps some delicacies from Rick Stein, some wine and step on board. Your boat will be fully fuelled and ready to go, relax in Studland Bay, explore the back of the islands in the harbour or cruise along the Blue Flag Sandbanks Beach – and after a day to remember just hand the boat back and walk away...
A few sundowners in the marina’s own restaurant South Deep (see page 61) and there you have the perfect day!
