My previous boat, an F27 trimaran, was named "Three Play" (and she was very exciting to sail).
My new boat, a Leopard 40 catamaran is "Changing Spots". The dinghy is "Spot", and my old, small dinghy is "Wet Spot".

It's a Leopard, named after it's owner and suggesting the unconventional -a leopard changing it's spots.

At least a triple meaning, and maybe more. Nicely done.

I don't think this was the best but I knew of a boat with the name Square Grouper, a slang term for a bale of marajuana.

They were always getting searched by the CG.

I have a boat named "Ounce" and that raises some eyebrows, until I explain that it is the common name for the Snow Leopard. Go figure.

"Bottom's Up" painted on the hull so it could only be seen while heeled over.

A racing Thunderbird in the Seattle area had no name and was a frequent winner. After much teasing from his fellow Thunderbirders he named his boat with lettering that started on one side, went across the transom, and up the other side. It read:

"If it won't come when you call it, Don't name it"

Have fun

Our local pump out business is Maritime Sanitation, I love their humor...
the pump out boats (the skunk fleet) are named :
The Phew-ee and Capt. Poop
Their logo is a skunk with a clothes pin on his nose.
When you can joke about that - now that is turning lemons into lemonade
