The recreational boating organization BoatUS recently released its 24th annual Top Ten Boat Names List.
“We’ve had indicators that a boater who names their boat Second Wind may have rebounded from a misfortune such as divorce, health or other major issue, while someone who names their boat Island Girl or Island Time may enjoy a more carefree spirit and need an escape from everyday life,” BoatUS Boat Graphics’ Greg Edge said in a statement. “And you can guess that boats with names like Happy Hours may be the most popular boats on Friday night at the marina or Saturday afternoon raft-up — their more outgoing owners celebrating with family and friends.”
The top name on the list: Serenity.
BoatUS has more than two decades of top 10 boat name lists and more than 9,000 names in its online Boat Name Directory, a checklist to help pick a name, christening ceremony information and an online design tool to make your own boat name.
