Boat Owners Association Announces Top Boat Names

The Boat Owners Association of The United States announced their annual list of top ten boat names...

One of the annual top 10 favorite boat names is Second Wind, shown on this bottle
opener, available with your boat name at Boat Name Gear.
For over 20 years, the folks at the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) have been sharing their list of the top ten most popular boat names. Don't hate on these boat names for being bland... After all, by definition, the more popular a boat name becomes, the less unique it is. That being said, there are a couple of boat names we haven't seen before on this year's list. But for the boat owners who named their boats after the songs Dream Weaver and Blue Bayou, please consider checking out our Sea Song of the Week where you may find a great boat name from a song that was made famous after 1977.

Did your favorite boat name make the 22nd annual list?  Please read on to check out the top boat names; add your comments to let us know your thoughts...

By the way, it won't be long before our sister-site FirstBoat.com's list of the top 10 boat names is released. FirstBoat bases their list on the most popular names requested on items sold at two stores in the Nautical Sites network, Boat Name Gear (which sells personalized boating gifts and gear) and Custom Boat Names (where you can design your own vinyl boat lettering online). We will of course bring you that list as soon as it is released.
