Looking for that special something for the captain or skipper in your life, without having to buy a whole new boat? Let’s face it—Personalized polo shirts, drink koozies, and floating key chains scream uber-cheesiness. Just like the names we name our boats, everything about being a boat owner comes down to one thing and one thing only—Passion. With that being said, I’ve compiled a small list of holiday gift ideas for boat owners of all ages. Some of these gifts are pretty basic and practical, while others will help to add a lil’ bit of personal ‘flavor’ to your old (or new) vessel. I’d love to keep this list growing, so feel free to post comments below, and send me your suggestions!
Pre-paid Gas Card : Boring? Thoughtless? Well, maybe, but I don’t think any boater would complain about FREE gas the next time they head out to the lake and see the $100 tab at the gas pump.
Custom Snap-In AquaMat® : Nothing takes away from the classiness and cleanliness of a boat, than some nasty, fraying, worn-out carpet! This is a simple and easy way for a boat owner to spruce up some aging interior and really impress their friends on the next boating trip. Not sure about color, size or model year? No worries, hook your boater up with a gift certificate, and leave the rest to Corinthian Marine!
Boat DIY Detail Kit : Not only are boat owners obsessed with their boats, they are obsessed with cleaning and detailing ‘em! Have fun and get creative with this one—Grab some marine wax, drying towels, & vinyl cleaner and put together a cool little detail ‘kit’!
Step Mat : Easy, simple, affordable. Keep dirt where it belongs—on the dock, not the boat! Any boat owner would love one or two of these step mats to throw down on the dock before their passengers step on board.
Logbook : A staple in boating tradition and a highly affordable and useful gift. Go basic or take it to the next level and get a personalized cover with the Captain’s name engraved on it.
