What’s in a Name?

While I’ll never own a boat big enough to name, it doesn’t hurt to be on the lookout for the perfect name…just in case.


The owner’s feeling about their boat seems to be a popular choice: Therapy, Finally, About Time, Reality, Impossible Dream, Why Not.

Many include the names of animals.

And then there’s boats named for people, places or ideas important to the owner, but not so obvious to others.

Of course, names with a play on words is always popular and my personal favorite.

I even saw a boat that shares a name with Emily’s dog!
