ALEXANDRIA, Va., February 4, 2010 – Boat names can reveal much about the personality of a boat owner. Or, they can also serve as signposts of the modern era. With the release of the annual Top Ten List of Most Popular Boat Names by Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), one newcomer to the list stands out. “Bail Out, the number five pick, clearly speaks volumes about what’s on boaters’ minds,” said BoatUS President Nancy Michelman. “With today’s economic uncertainty, naming a boat Bail Out could indicate that boating is a survival mechanism for the family that will keep them afloat,” she added.
The list is assembled each year by the BoatUS Boat Graphics service which offers a free library of over 8,500 boat names and also allows boaters to easily select, custom design and preview boat names online – without having to pay up front.
