Sailors are often found moving slowly across the water while adjusting lines and trimming sails. This slow activity allows plenty of time to think up philosophical or funny sailboat names.

Hope you enjoyed our list of funny sailboat names.

Sailing has been a lifestyle and a sport for me. I hardly know the person I was before I purchased my Newport 30. Some of my greatest heroes are single handed sailors. Chichester, Moitessier, Slocum – these guys are legends of the seven seas. If you have never heard of Joshua Slocum, then you can read about his life here. He wrote a great book called, ‘Sailing alone around the world.’ It should be in the main cabin of every sailboat. It’s an inspiration.
