ABOUT US


My name is Esther and I am the proud owner/operator of Poole Boat Hire. I love the sea and being on the water, a love born out of my days windsurfing, waterskiing and wake-boarding for many years in the Harbour. So, when I was offered a job cleaning boats in the marina I knew I was “navigating the right channel”.

It wasn’t long before I was involved with sales and sea trials in the harbour. A few years later, I was offered a position working for Powerboat Training UK, also based in Cobbs Quay Marina, who, at that time, had a hire boat side to their business known as ‘Purple Pelican’. It was amazing to see just how much hirers loved their time on the water and following the expansion of the training school, I was given the opportunity to buy the business. With the purchase completed, I changed the name and Poole Boat Hire (PBH) was born.

I’ve been running Poole Boat Hire since 2014, initially on my own, but now with the help of my awesome team of friendly, helpful and fully qualified individuals. We still have the same incredible boats, new engines and have also added some technological upgrades.
