Buying a boat is a big decision. Not only do you have to consider the type of boat, the size, and the price, but you also have to come up with a good name. And as any boater will tell you, picking a great name is serious business.

There are a few things to consider when naming your boat. You want something that’s unique, but not too weird. You want something that’s easy to pronounce and spell, but that still has some personality. And most importantly, you want something that won’t get you laughed at by your friends (or worse, the Coast Guard).

To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best and worst boat names out there. So whether you’re looking for inspiration or just a good laugh, read on!

Worst Boat Names

Boaty McBoatface

This is probably the most famous (or infamous) boat name of all time. In 2016, the British research vessel RSS Sir David Attenborough was set to be named by public vote. And when the public was given the chance to name the ship, they chose… Boaty McBoatface. 

Unfortunately for the people of the internet, the final decision was left up to the ship’s owners, who decided to name it after famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough instead. However, they did honor the public’s wishes by naming one of the ship’s remotely operated vehicles (or ROVs) Boaty McBoatface. So there’s that.

Reel Therapy

This one isn’t so much bad as it is just plain confusing. We’re not quite sure what this boat is supposed to be therapeutic for exactly… But we’re pretty sure it’s not going to help with our motion sickness.

Second Chance, Second Year, New Name, Bad Luck

There’s an unspoken rule in boat naming that you should never name your boat after someone or something that died. That includes giving your boat a number instead of a name (like “2nd Chance” or “2nd Year”). These names tend to be associated with bad luck, and no one wants that when they’re out on the open water.

Coolest Boat Names

Black Pearl

This one is straight out of Pirates of the Caribbean (which is fitting since the Black Pearl is supposedly based on a real pirate ship). We love how badass this name sounds, and we’re pretty sure all aboard would feel like pirates whenever they set sail. 

Love Boat

This one is classic! The Love Boat was a TV show in the 1970s and 1980s about a cruise ship full of singles looking for love (and adventure). While we doubt any actual boats are named Love Boat these days, it’s still a great choice if you’re looking for something romantic (or kitschy).  

First Mate, Olden Days

We love nautical wordplay, and First Mate definitely delivers in that department. It’s also a great choice if you’re looking for something traditional—after all, first mates have been around since long before boats had motors.

No matter what you come up with for the name of a boat, or new name, we hope you have lots of fun (and safe!) adventures on it! And if you ever find yourself in need of some reel therapy, we know just the place…

Naming your boat can be hard… but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you’re looking for a funny boat name, a clever boat name, or just want to know what the most popular boat names are, we’ve got you covered. You might want to stay away from greek mythology if you want cool boat names. The coolest name should have a sense of humor and follow coast guard rules, excluding your registration number.
