Cruising Area of Moose of Poole
Moose of Poole Description
MOOSE OF POOLE is a Lagoon 620, possibly the most popular build with sailing catamaran charter enthusiasts. She was designed for the ultimate luxury experience, from impressive indoor and outdoor living spaces right down to the small details. The vessel is the product of precision engineering that allows her to remain stable and perform well, whether sailing or motoring.
MOOSE OF POOLE is 62 feet long and 31 feet wide, giving guests a floating villa comparable in area to a 100-foot motor yacht. Interiors are designed with reconstituted Alpi wood in an elegant, natural finish. Light pours in via the vertical windows that trap less heat due to their angle. These can be effortlessly covered for privacy with electric drop-down blinds.
The saloon has space for a crowd, with a lengthy sofa opposite a hi/lo dining table and settee. The preferred dining experience takes place outside in the cockpit where a large table seats eight. The entire transom is outfitted as another giant lounge.
Four spacious, guest cabins are all ensuite, bright and airy with plenty of storage. The windowed wall of the master cabin includes romantic, private access out on deck.
The flybridge has a full bridge with twin wheels, an invitation for guests to co-pilot. The L-shaped settee and a double sun pad offer a ride while underway with refreshing breezes and magnificent views. The flybridge area essentially doubles the space aboard MOOSE OF POOLE and is always a favorite when it’s time to relax at anchor.
Hairdryers in each cabin
Note guests should check any electrical items such as ipads, cell phones etc can be used with 240v (most are these days), as no 110v current on board.
3 sunbeds for foredeck lounging

Chef & Stewardess: Annick Denizot (France)
Annick is a French national, raised in the countryside of Villefranche sur Saône. She was very athletic as a child and was first introduced to sailing at summer camp. That was likely the spark that ignited her love of the sea. While she continues to enjoy sports of all kinds, sailing remains her top favorite.
Annick took courses in the hospitality industry, including a Professional Certificate of Kitchen. She also holds a nursing assistant certificate, which can be an asset for charter guests with special needs. Her 10 years of experience in the yachting industry have included working as a hostess and cook. The past seven months she has spent aboard MOOSE OF POOLE.
Mediterranean cooking is the style Annick enjoys most, particularly during European summers when local ingredients are fresh. Guests most rave about her fish tartare and cheese fondue. In the Caribbean, her menu is based on what is fresh and local. After a delicious meal, things don’t slow down if Annick has a say. She likes to sing and dance with her guests. It’s the most delightful way to burn off a few of the extra calories gained from such irresistible food.

Moose of Poole Guest Reviews
St. Vincent and the Grenadines – January 4, 2020
Our family has been utterly blown away by the incredible journey we’ve has this week on the Moose of Poole. From the moment we boarded, we knew that the luxury of the boat and the warmth of our crew would make us feel right at home during this week of paradise. Both Annick and Laurant were quick to adapt to our often whimsical desires for adventure, both in our food and our exploration of the islands. They were constantly engaged, humorous, and easygoing, and went above and beyond to make our family comfortable on our journey. The boat itself served as a perfect home to each of our three generations, and we were simply in awe of the beauty of this place as we sailed from island to island. This holiday vacation will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and we cannot thank you enough for that.
