What's In A Boat Name?
BoatUS Releases 2016's Top Ten Boat Names
July 1, 2016
A boat name can reveal much about the personality of a boat owner. Are they into fishing? Reel Therapy on the boat's transom certainly shows it. Do they have kids in school? What College Fund? says it best. Like to sing? In Harmony is a popular choice. Work in the finance industry? Liquid Assets is suitable.
Regardless of lifestyles, families or careers, choosing a name can be difficult. To help boaters with this task, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) offers a list of over 9,000 boat names given by boaters across the country over the last 20 years, and today officially releases its 2016 list of Top Ten Boat Names. They are the following:
1. Happy Ours
5. Island Time
6. No Regrets
8. At Last
9. Blue Moon
"Happy Ours may be the most popular boat on a Friday night at the marina," said BoatUS Boat Graphics Manager Greg Edge. "Names like Freedom and Liberty show boaters' patriotic side, but they also like their boat names to remind themselves to slow down and relax, such as the ever-popular Island Time."
For a look at all of the boat names, go to BoatUS.com/boatnames. The BoatUS Graphics service offers an online design tool to easily create custom boat graphics with fast turnaround times. All graphics come with a 30-day "Oops Assurance Guarantee" that allow a buyer to receive replacement decals free of charge if the graphic was damaged during installation. Simple video instructions show how to remove or add graphics.
