ALEXANDRIA, Va. – If a car’s vanity license plate can tell you a lot about the person behind the wheel, what can a boat name tell you about the person behind the helm?
Boat Owners Association of The United States just released its 24th Annual Top Ten Boat Names List and may have the answer.
The BoatUS list of Top Ten Boat Names:
2. Second Wind
3. Island Girl
7. Island Time
8. Irish Wake
9. Happy Hours
10. Seas the Day
“We’ve had indicators that a boater who names their boat Second Wind may have rebounded from a misfortune such as divorce, health or other major issue, while someone who names their boat Island Girl or Island Time may enjoy a more carefree spirit and need an escape from everyday life,” said Greg Edge of BoatUS Boat Graphics. “And you can guess that boats with names like Happy Hours may be the most popular boats on Friday night at the marina or Saturday afternoon raft-up – their more outgoing owners celebrating with family and friends.”
