BoatUS unveils list of popular boat names

BoatUS released its 22nd annual list of the top 10 boat names.

They are:

1. Seas the Day

2. Nauti Buoy

3. Aquaholic

4. Dream Weaver

5. Pegasus

6. Serenity Now

7. Second Wind

8. Liquid Asset

9. Miss Behavin'

10. Blew By You

“A boat name reflects the life and loves of the owner,” says Occoless Trotter of the BoatUS Boat Graphics department, which helps boaters design boat names “But it’s hard to sum it all up with just a few words.”

This year’s list included three newcomers: Nauti Buoy, Serenity Now and Blew By You, a popular racing sailboat moniker and a clever wordplay on an old Roy Orbison song that Linda Ronstadt made famous. Two other boat names made the list for the second time: Dream Weaver and Pegasus. All of the others are multiyear repeats.

Names that did not make the top 10 list, but appeared more than once, include Pandora, a reference to the planetoid at the center of the film “Avatar,” as well as boat names that invoke favorite songs: Margaritavilleand Dream Weaver resonated strongly among boat owners of all types.
