The Top Boat Names Are Out

It’s that time again when the most popular boat names for 2011 were announced by FirstBoat.com. A trend seems to have emerged from this year’s list that demonstrates how boaters enjoy their time on the water. Boat names like Serenity, Happy Ours, Family Time and Just Chillin dominated this year’s top ten. Does this tell you that boating really provides people with a way to relax and make the most of their time with family and friends? Is your boat name on the list?

Following are the top ten most popular boat names for 2011:

  1. Serenity (In addition to “Serenity” we saw variations such as “Serenity Now!” of Seinfeld fame, as well as clever misspellings including “Sea-Renity”)
  2. Happy Ours (Time was a common theme in boat names this year. Variations on this boat name included “Happy Hours” and “Happy Hour”)
  3. Feelin’ Nauti(This one surprised us when it rose to the top five, as there are so many other popular boat names that include “Nauti” in the name)
  4. Family Time (Another variation of the Time theme that we saw again and again. There were many other boat names that referenced Time that came close to the top ten.)
  5. Liberty (Always a favorite, we also saw variations such as Miss Liberty, Lady Liberty, and Liberty Belle)
  6. Black Pearl(Every boater feels like a pirate sometimes. Just plain “Pearl” was popular as well, but it didn’t crack our top ten)
  7. Andiamo (Let’s Go! A quick internet search will show you that this is not only a popular name for boats, but also for Italian restaurants in America)
  8. Knot On Call(Several boat names used the word “Knot” cleverly, but only this one made the top ten)
  9. High Maintenance(Yes, this describes most boats very accurately)
  10. Just Chillin (Looks like relaxing is on the mind of even the younger generation of boaters)
