Aquaholic ranks 10th on the new BoatUS list of the most popular boat names.

A boat name can reveal much about the personality of a boat owner. Are they into fishing? Reel Therapy on the boat’s transom certainly shows it. Do they have kids in school? What College Fund? says it best. Work in the finance industry? Liquid Assets is suitable.

BoatUS offers a list of more than 9,000 boat names given by boaters across the country during the past 20 years and has officially released its 2016 list of top 10 boat names.

They are:

  1. Happy Ours
  2. Freedom
  3. Grace
  4. Serendipity
  5. Island Time
  6. No Regrets
  7. Liberty
  8. At Last
  9. Blue Moon
  10. Aquaholic

Happy Ours may be the most popular boat on a Friday night at the marina,” BoatUS Boat graphics manager Greg Edge said in a statement. “Names like Freedom and Liberty show boaters’ patriotic side, but they also like their boat names to remind themselves to slow down and relax, such as the ever-popular Island Time.”
