Perfect Gifts for the Boating Enthusiast

Posted by Steven on 12/17/2013 to Marina
The holiday season is upon us once again, and once again we all start brainstorming on the perfect gifts for our friends and loved ones. If you happen to have a boating enthusiast in your life, you are fortunate in that you at least have a category of hobby that you can focus on for gift giving. However, if you don’t know anything about boating, the never-ending list of products and websites dedicated to boaters can be overwhelming. Hopefully this list of great gifts for anyone who loves sailing the open waters can help you narrow down your search for presents.
 
Gadgets
What do you get the person who loves big toys, like boats? Well, even more toys. If he or she doesn’t own one already, it’s a really good idea to invest in a handheld VHF radio. All mariners are recommended to have one on board at all times in the event of emergency. Speaking of emergencies, an EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radiobeacons) will broadcast your location anywhere in the world—an invaluable gadget for obvious reasons.
 
Since weather is critical for boating, consider an electronic weather station that offers barometric readings, wind speeds and direction, and temperature in real time. For something a little more festive and cheery, consider the “Ice Cream Ball” –made of Lexan plastic, filling this ball with cream, ice, and rock salt, then rolling it around for 20 minutes, produces delicious soft ice cream. It’s a great way to help kill a little bit of time, especially for young children with minimal attention spans.
 
Personalized Ideas
A boat is as unique as its owner, so what better way to celebrate that individuality than with a personalized gift for it? Here are just a few of the many great boating presents that can be customized:
