BoatUS releases top boat names for 2015

Serenity took the No. 1 spot for the second year in a row in the name’s 10th appearance on the list.

BoatUS released its list of the top 10 boat names for 2015.

Serenity took the No. 1 spot for the second year in a row in the name’s 10th appearance on the list, which BoatUS has issued annually since 1992.

“Calm, peaceful and untroubled is what boating is all about for so many boaters,” BoatUS spokesman Scott Croft said in a statement.

The top 10 names on the 2015 list are:

  1. Serenity
  2. Seas the Day
  3. Andiamo (Italian for “let’s go”)
  4. Aquaholic
  5. Second Wind
  6. Island Time
  7. Happy Ours
  8. Journey
  9. Serendipity
  10. Relentless

Croft said boaters frequently come to BoatUS to get ideas for a name by taking a peek at the association’s online list of more than 8,000 names.

“Picking a boat name can be harder than naming one’s own child,” said Croft, who has had to name several of his boats through the years. “Boat names can reflect your lifestyle, your relationship to loved ones or what you do for a living. And that’s only the beginning.”
