The Top Five Boat Names For 2017

Posted on

a page of names of boats written in fun fonts and colors




I saw an article last week about the top baby names for 2017. The story went on to speculate, “…if you’re searching for a baby name in 2017, you’ve got a big, exciting decision to make. Whether you’re after something that’s trendy or traditional, it can be challenging to wade through the thousands of possible names for your future baby.

I thought to myself, “What about boat names?” Surely, the proud new owner of a private luxury yacht charter vessel must experience similar excitement in deciding what to name his or her new floating palace.

Lo and behold, the Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatUS), recently released their annual list of the Top Five Boat Names for 2017 [they actually list the top ten, but who cares about any top list after the first few winners].

For certain, each name reveals a little bit about the personality of the yacht’s owner.  So, from trendy to traditional, here is this year’s Top Five list of names:



  1. SERENITY – if ever a name captured the essence if a private yacht charter vacation, this is it.  Calm…quietude…ahhh…

Note – there are soooo many luxury yacht charter vessels with this name, we can barely keep them straight!  Four of them are currently listed on our site, including the popular Greek yacht charter catamaran SERENITY,  and we have NINE yachts with this name in our charter database!


  1. SEAS THE DAY – cute play on words for the famous Latin phrase, “Carpe diem.”


  1. ANDIAMO – this perennial favorite name means, “Let’s Go” in Italian.


  1. IRISH WAKE – I think we all know stories about the joy and celebration the Irish are said to have after the death of a beloved friend or family member.  Still, this one creeps me out a little bit for a boat’s name…
    1. FREEDOM – bold, powerful, and patriotic.  Common charter vessel name, including the 120 foot Virgin Island yacht charter motor yacht FREEDOM, and the massive 23 foot Benetti yacht charter vessel that shares the same name (ex motor yacht REVERIE)

Do you have a favorite boat name, perhaps for your own boat, or a luxury yacht charter vessel you saw at sea?  Share that name with us, and if there’s a short story about the name, we would love to hear it!  Email us your cute boat name at!

Yacht Charter Review – Crew and Islands Dazzle

Posted on

“I wanted to…share some additional details of our experience on the Freedom motor yacht. From start to finish, Captain George, his crew and the Freedom yacht offered us a first class experience.



While we expected the boat to be very impressive, we were delighted with how spacious it was; how private the bedrooms felt; the music and satellite TV system that ran throughout the boat (and its ease of use); and how customized the temperature systems were by bedroom.

The design of the entire boat is quite exceptional. There are ample spaces to do just about anything throughout the course of the trip: tan, read, be in shade, be in air conditioning, relax in a hot tub, sit at a bar, watch a movie, fish, play board games, etc. It truly is a floating hotel.



While we expected to food to be good, we did not anticipate 3 gourmet, 5-star dining-experience meals per day. Joseph (chef) was simply outstanding and created meals that were memorable, healthy, and just the right amount of food. The children and adults alike loved each and every meal and appreciated the honoring of our requests while far exceeding our expectations.



While we expected to have play toys, we did not anticipate having Matt at our service, 24/7 to help us on and off of kayaks, paddle boards, willing to take the kids out wake boarding and tubing, etc. Matt had the perfect temperament for adults and children alike– and was an incredible enabler to all of our fun trips snorkeling, paddle boarding, etc. He was a real gift and asset for the entire time.



While we expected to have good service, we did not anticipate Sarah’s artful setting of the tables for every meal— that made us feel as though we were eating in a different restaurant each day, even though we were at the same table as the prior meal and prior day. We would run down after breakfast to get something in our rooms, only to find the beds had already been made; the bathrooms straightened/cleaned. She was the person who made everything beautiful and easy. She was a real joy to have and get to know.



And while we expected a highly seasoned and competent captain, we felt honored to be under the care of Captain George Custer for a week. He was entirely willing to customize our plans and routes to meet our needs—- always with a plan, and always willing to change the plan as individual desires or weathers changed. He is a delightful person with rich life experiences that our entire group enjoyed. I would highly recommend him to any type or size of group. He seems to have seen and done it all— and knows how to read people and groups well. He is a gem and we felt safe in his care. It was hard to say good-bye!



The toys on the boat were key to our enjoyment as two active families. The paddle boards and kayaks were in constant use, as were the sea bobs when we were in waters where they were permitted. We used the smaller boats to take us snorkeling in many interesting places and enjoyed those side trips immensely.



All in all, as you suggested it would be, it really was the vacation of a lifetime for our families. It was hard to end— and we hope to do something like it again in the future.



I would strongly encourage you to steer future groups to Broward motor yacht Freedom. It has it all; it felt new and fresh; was immaculately clean and cared for— and had a crew second to none.

Warm regards-
Leslie B
