Sail-World.com : BoatUS Top 10 boat names - list released

BoatUS Top 10 boat names - list released

'Boat names - some are all wet!'    . ©

The 22nd annual list of top 10 boat names has been released by BoatUS, with 'Seas the Day' taking out top ranking.

Making the decision to buy a boat comes easy for some people. Picking out a name for the boat, however, can prove to be much harder, according to Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS).

'A boat name reflects the life and loves of the owner,' says Occoless Trotter of the BoatUS Boat Graphics department in Alexandria, Virginia, which helps boaters design their own boat names 'But, it's hard to sum it all up with just a few words.' The half-million-member boat owners group has been tallying the Top Ten Boat Names List for over two decades.

The 22nd Annual List Top Ten Boat Names are:
1. Seas the Day
2. Nauti Buoy
3. Aquaholic
4. Dream Weaver
5. Pegasus
6. Serenity Now
7. Second Wind
8. Liquid Asset
9. Miss Behavin'
10. Blew ByYou

'When you get a boat, there are certain things you have to do, such as registering it and buying insurance or towing coverage,' added Trotter 'However, picking a boat name opens up a creative side.' This year's list included three newcomers: Nauti Buoy, Serenity Now, and Blew ByYou, a popular racing sailboat moniker and clever word play on an old Roy Orbison song made famous by Linda Ronstadt.

Two other boat names made the list for the second time: Dream Weaver and Pegasus. All others are multi-year repeats.

Some names that did not make the top ten list but appeared more than once include Pandora, a reference to the planetoid at the center of the film Avatar, as well as boat names that invoke favorite songs - with Margaritaville and Dream Weaver resonating strongly among boat owners of all types.
