Boat Name

BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A boat name can be defined as a depiction on its exterior that represents a personalized identification. It is often displayed in conjunction with a hailing port.

Meaning


Boat naming is an arbitrary choice on behalf of its owner as opposed to a manufacturer's placard showing the make or model. Boat names are not always unique and there is no legal requirement in this regard.

Context


Owner assigned boat names are of no consequence when it comes to state level marking requirements. However, USCG documented boats must display a chosen vessel name and hailing port in accordance with its regulations.

Conclusion


Boat names can be beneficial in emergency situations and add to the fun of being on the water. However, owners should avoid offensive depictions, profane language or emergency call signals when making such choice.
