Principal Power is located in Cobb’s Quay Marina, Hamworthy, Poole. The Marina is in Holes Bay, on the north shores of Poole Harbour, with access to the main harbour and Poole Quay through the Poole Lifting Bridge or the magnificent Twin Sails Bridge.
Poole Harbour is one of the world's largest natural harbours and its extensive sheltered waters provide a magnificent haven for recreational sailing and water sports.
Sharing the navigation channels with yachtsmen are Cross-Channel ferries and cargo vessels proceeding to and from the busy commercial Port. The local fishing fleet also arrives and departs at all hours.
Poole boasts a bustling Quay with pubs, restaurants and a marina, and round the corner are some of the best beaches in England. There is something for everyone in Poole.
