Boat names organized by the classic boating personalities.

The hardest part about buying a boat is convincing yourself you can afford it. The fun part is choosing the perfect name. You want a name that lets the world know you’ve arrived. Or, perhaps, a name that lets the world know you won’t be arriving….at work…ever again.

To help you choose wisely, we’ve put together a list of boat names categorized by the classic boating personality types. First, decide what type of boater you are, then click into your category.

We hope you a got a good laugh from this list. And ideally, you found a name for your vessel.

If you think we should add a new category of boater type, please let us know! Or, if you’ve seen a good name that belongs in one of these categories, don’t hesitate to reach out. We will add it to the list.
