We named our Hunter 28.5 CraSea NOcean because that is what it has to be to go cruising in that size of a boat for several months with two large dogs...

It's a long thread and I haven't read the whole thing - hopefully somebody already said this . . .


If you actually plan to go anywhere, the name should be simple and clear over the radio - or you're going to be repeating it and spelling it a lot.

I also have a strong personal distain for names that are plays on words, especially if they include "sea" or the owners' names. Those are fine (and expected) on power boats, but don't grace the transom of a sailboat with that #@!&.

I have to agree with BobJ.
I find that names that are plays on words get real old real fast. Not sure the boats like them much either. Have to admit I did do a 'play on numbers' for the name for one of my boats. Got a Snipe with hull #1849 which I named Gold Rush

Name your boat whatever you want, it's your boat, and don't worry self rightous opinions of others who don't really have any imagination. Those are the folks I hold in disdain!

"Vessel Martini (sic), please spell your name."

"I spell 'Martinini' - mike, alpha, romeo, tango, india, november, india, november, india."

Good luck w/that.


I do apologize - the sequence of posts caused you to receive what sounded like a personal attack. Your boat's name just made a good example of my point. We have a limited time to edit our posts, otherwise I'd tone it down. Hit a nerve with me I guess.

For a "balancing" post, see the one regarding car names on Ocean Girl's thread.

Everyone in entitled to their opinion and I stand by mine, just as you appear to stand by yours. Everyone who knows me knows I have an opinion on everything and no fear of expressing it. No offense taken, and none implied just an opinion. No apology needed.

Someone mentioned the J/24 named "Small Flying Patio Furniture." Two other boats in that fleet are "Nixon Was Cool" and "Downtown Uproar."

Also there was a 'Tuna 22 named "Peanut Butter and Jelly."

A few from Down Under...
I had a 23ft sailboat I called Pickpocket. It was big enough to empty my wallet, not big enough to do any serious cruising.

I've seen a few clever ones here too... Sailbad the Sinner.
Another was Secret Men's Business. Bit of a background to that one but quite clever too.

Generally I prefer a name, rather than a sentence.

Somebody mislead you , "morena" in Portuguese means brunette . In Brazil it's also a coloquialism for "black girl" .
It's a lovely name for a boat though....
