What can someone who already owns a boat possibly want? As it turns out, quite a bit. While it might seem that shopping for a boat owner can be difficult, there are plenty of boating accessories that not only make the boating experience more pleasant, but are actually downright necessary for anyone who has to maintain a boat. Let’s explore some of our top gift ideas for boat owners.
For the Active Fisher: A Fishfinder
Some people buy boats for one reason only: to catch fish. The ability to go out on the water at just about any time and navigate to the top fishing destinations is one of the chief perks of being a boat owner. That being said, a Fishfinder is sure to put a smile on the face of any boat owners who are true fishing enthusiasts. We recommend the Garmin brand, as they’re both high-quality, affordable, and offer a simple visual display that reveals what’s going on below the surface.
If you know that the boat owner in your life is an active fisher, you can always look at other fishing accessories as well, ranging from small accessories such as electronic fish scales to fishing lure sets.
For the New Boat Owner: Safety and Protection
If you know someone who only recently acquired a boat, it’s possible that they haven’t invested as much into safety and protection products just yet. That means now’s the perfect time to help them stock up on these necessary boating accessories. Take a look at these safety gift options:
- Waterproof equipment. If you need a “stocking stuffer” idea, waterproof equipment—such as a “dry bag” to store travel essentials like wallets—make great gifts. A Passport Locker is a relatively inexpensive gift that even many experienced boat owners may not already own.
- Life jacket. Boat owners may already own a life jacket, but this is a great opportunity to invest in one that doesn’t only protect the owner, but also adds some style. This is especially important for anyone who wants to give a gift that will allow the boat owner to encourage younger passengers to wear their life jacket more often. Consider choosing a sporty life vest that’s also lightweight to provide both style and comfort.
For the Hard Working Boat Owner: Boat Maintenance Products
The big challenge of owning a boat is keeping it in great shape. That’s where boat maintenance products come in. These maintenance products may not be like a Fishfinder when it comes to pure enjoyment, but any boat owner who knows how difficult it is to keep their boat in shape can appreciate a high-quality maintenance product. We at BoatLIFE recommend making a gift out of our Boat Cleaners. They make a practical yet fun “boat cleaning kit” that your boat owner can use at their convenience.
