Boat names can reveal a lot about the personality, passion and life experiences of a boat owner. This year, BoatUS decoded the most popular boat names ordered through its online boat graphics and lettering service at BoatUS.com/BoatGraphics, producing a revealing list of the Top 10 Boat Names of 2018.

  1. GraceThis name reflects the elegant and tranquil qualities of the boat, oftentimes owned by someone seeking peace through time spent on the water.
  2. FreedomA patriot to its core, this boat symbolizes the meaning of freedom in all senses of the word: freedom to explore, freedom to dream and freedom to discover the world by water being most important.
  3. Seas the DayWhile this boat owner may feel a loss of control over a declining retirement account, he or she is completely in charge while boating and intends to get the most out of the boating lifestyle.
  4. TherapyCapitalizing on all the joys that boating has to offer, this name takes into account the healing nature that boating provides its owner.
  5. Second WindThis boat is perhaps owned by parents constantly yearning for that second boost of energy in life. Spending time with their boat gives them rejuvenation despite the craziness of being Mom or Dad.
  6. SerenityBorn out of the “hippie era,” this name illustrates peacefulness in both the boat and the owner. Simply explained, this boater is completely untroubled while out on the water.
  7. PerseveranceA relentless vehicle that never stops exploring, this boat likely has more than 10 years on it – with a few dents and scratches – but also holds countless memories of good times.
  8. Rum RunnerA party boat by nature, this vessel often hosts big personalities and guarantees a good time with laughs galore.
  9. Knot on CallThe moment a boater steps onto this boat, his or her responsibilities are left at the dock. The owner enjoys and encourages leaving worries behind and becomes fully immersed in the boating experience.
  10. Pura VidaMore than just a Costa Rican saying meaning “pure life,” it reflects a way of everyday living by example – one that thrives on no worries, no fuss and no stress.
