Gift Guide: Boating Apparel

The 3rd annual Daily Boater Holiday Gift Guide includes a wide selection of nautical gift ideas, including apparel for boating and sailing...

Apparel for Boating and Sailing
We've found a few items that boaters love to wear, on and off the boat. Some are practical, some are unique, and some can be personalized with the boat's name on them.
Factoid: Studies show that wearing boating gear helps a boater get through the day when they can't be on the boat, especially in the cold winter months. 

Boat Name Watch CapThe Boat Name Watch Cap

Whether you are snowed in for the winter, ice fishing, or spending a cool evening on the boat, you'll feel more comfortable when you are wearing a watch cap, subtly embroidered with your boat name on the band. Available in several colors, these personalized hats make a great gift for any boater experiencing the winter blues.

Body Glove 3T Barefoot Max

The 3T Barefoot Max is a hybrid shoe made for in our out of the water, but they are perfect for wearing on and around the boat. We wore these shoes all summer and love the features, which include:
  • Breathable and quick-drying with a unique drainage system. 
  • 3-toe design and velcro strap for easy on and off. 
  • Non-marking rubber sole that provides a great grip.
Available for about $50 at famousfootwear.com.


Personalized Performance Polo Shirt

All that and includes a boat name and hailing port (or any text), embroidered on the left chest in your choice of color, at no extra charge. You can also add one of several stock nautical images.
