11 Great Gifts for Boston Harbor Boaters

Holiday gift time is here! If you have a boater in your life, you probably know that there’s always some gadget, gizmo, tool, or toy that’s on their wishlist. If you want to know what to wrap up for your boating loved one (or sneak into your own stocking)  this year, check out our list of Boston boater “must-haves” 

Stocking Stuffers

A waterproof iPhone case is a good idea for any boater, but this shockproof ProShot is fully immersible and can effectively turn your phone into an underwater camera! 

For anyone prone to losing, dropping or misplacing their keys, Chums Floating Keychain makes sure they won’t end up at the bottom of the harbor. 

Keep cash, cards, photos, and slips safe and dry with these diver-grade SharkPack Aqua Wallets

For the Boat

Brand your boat with your initials, sayings, slogans or another custom design with a personalized flag from Rhode Island-based Boatflag.me

This one is a personal favorite of our boaters and staff - splurge on a Yeti Cooler for its incredible Coldcell technology and never worry about sun-warmed beer again. 

Sometimes the necessary essentials make great gifts - you can’t go wrong with a Marine First Aid Kit. 

Make sure the boat is all decked out for maximum relaxation with a Go Anywhere Beanbag Lounger.

Recommended by our boaters, the DeLorme inReach SE Tracker offers amazing peace of mind. Using satellite positioning it tracks your boat’s location and can trigger an SOS and interact back and forth with GEOS, their 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center. Provides 100% global coverage through the Iridium satellite network. 

For the Boater

Offering boat towing services and other discounts and benefits a Sea Tow or BoatUS membership is like gifting someone a AAA membership specifically for the sea. It may not seem fun, but it’s a total lifesaver at least once per season. 

Tickets to the New England Boat Show! Because who doesn’t want to go ogle beautiful boats and have dreams of the summer sun in the middle of winter?

A spirit of the season - Nautical Gin by New Hampshire spirit maker Vertical Spirits is sure to get everyone in a festive mood.
