Gifts For a New Boat Owner

Life/Recreation - Fishing

Introduction:We've got a power boat and a sailboat so I'm a pro at knowing some great gifts for new boat owners. I'm also pretty good at knowing what is NOT a great gift (ie, glassware - voice of experience talking here).

So, come along and find some good and unusual gifts for a new boat owner.

  • 01

    Mermaid Fenders

    'Fenders' are also called bumpers and are meant to protect the boat from hard objects like docks. Amazon carries an adorable boat fender in the shape of a mermaid - we have 2 of these on 'Namaste', our sailboat. You can see them in my accompanying article "Good gifts for boat owners" on squidoo.com (the link is in the supporting link section below).

    Captain's or Boat Maintenance Logs

    Particularly if your new boat owner is going to go for something like a six-pack license (this allows a boat owner to take 6 paying passengers on a boat such as scuba diving, fishing etc), it is necessary to show a certain amount of days on the water. That's where the captain's logs come into play - the boat owner simply records the date, how long they were out and any other particulars.

    Boat maintenance logs are great gifts for new boat owners to record all of the work done on a boat. And, trust me, there's a LOT of work to be done on boats - sigh.

    You'll see these items on that article in the supporting links section too.

    Waterproof Cameras

    I love my little Sony underwater camera and always bring it aboard when we're out sailing. I also have it attached to a floating strap as John has, on more than one occasion, had to hit the drink to go get it for me.

    I have a review of my Sony underwater camera in the supporting links section below.

    Handheld GPS Units

    Namaste has a GPS unit built in but it has failed us before so we carry a handheld GPS unit when we go boating. These units used to cost hundreds of dollars but not any longer. You can find a decent boating GPS unit now for under $100.

  • 05

    Floating Keychains

    Just like my waterproof camera, my keys have hit the drink a time or two. I wouldn't even step close to water without my keys on a floating keychain! Make sure though that your boat owner friend doesn't pile a bunch of keys on one floating keychain - it's still possible to sink keys if there's not enough buoyancy.

    You can see more floating keychain in my Squidoo article 'Must have gifts for Pontoon boat owners (in the supporting link section below).




Final Thoughts

When looking for good gifts for new boat owners, try to steer clear of breakable items, such as glasses. Boating means bare feet and glass means breakage!

Other good gifts for new boat owners are captain's hats, boating cup holders and cockpit organizers.
