Facilites at The Poole Yacht Club
The facilities enjoyed by our members are second to none. A sheltered Yacht Haven for over 350 yachts and motorboats, a superb clubhouse that can accommodate over 180 to a sit-down dinner and still leave room to dance!
Sheltered berthing with 2 metres at Mean Low Water Springs. Members have boats up to 40’ maximum length.
Berthing for over 350 boats
There are four main pontoons: A-D looking north to south. From the entrance A is on the right on the eastern end whilst D is to the left (see aerial picture taken from seaward). There is also a Waiting Pontoon. To the left-hand, southwest, side as you enter from the Harbour another pontoon holds the R19 fleet. Further on is the Dayboat Pontoon; the Waiting Pontoon is the continuation of this towards the slipway.
Members are allocated berths on a seniority basis.
Built in 1984 and extended in 2010, our clubhouse is superb.
On the first floor - to the west is a full-sized Snooker Table, this is adjacent to The Lounge Bar where members relax, have a drink and maybe a delicious lunchtime snack. The Bar is fully stocked; several real ales and a selection of quality wines are on offer. Next, as we look west to east from seaward, is our Restaurant. Generally this seats 50 but we can accommodate many more by extending into The Skylight Lounge. The Skylight is the latest edition to our facilities; alone it can accommodate 80 for a sit-down lunch or dinner.
Flexibility is the bonus, each area can be sectioned-off or opened-up to accommodate the function of the day.
The restaurant is always open for hot and cold lunches.
During the summer the restaurant is also open Monday to Friday evenings and some Saturdays. Monday to Thursday a delicious variety of ‘Race Night’ food is available while on Fridays a gourmet A La Carte selection is available.
During the winter months evening food is served, in addition to Gourmet Fridays, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
