ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Head to any marina or out on Chesapeake Bay and you find yourself checking out just how creative the owners have been in naming their boats.

While making the commitment to buy a boat is huge, committing to a boat name may be just as difficult. And it surely brings out the creativity in the owner.

The Boat Owners Association of The United States is out with its annual list of the top 10 boat names. No, the S.S. Minnow is not on the list.

  1. Seas the Day
  2. Nauti Buoy
  3. Aquaholic
  4. Dream Weaver
  5. Pegasus
  6. Serenity Now
  7. Second Wind
  8. Liquid Asset
  9. Miss Behavin’
  10. Blew ByYou

Nauti Buoy, Serenity Now and Blew ByYou are new to the list.

Dream Weaver and Pegasus made the list for the second time. The rest of the names are multi-year repeats.
