ALEXANDRIA, Va., October 7, 2014 – Boat names are as varied as boat owners. However, owners looking for something special to put on their vessel now have a new premium level Custom Boat Graphics service from Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) that includes the services of their own private designer. The new Custom Boat Graphics service is for boaters who want something more than just boat name lettering, but who may not have the time or creative talent to design their artwork. “Boaters only need to come to us with an idea, and in as little as two to three business days we have a custom designed artwork ready for installation -- not just a boat name -- delivered to their door,” said Boat Graphics Specialist Ron Crittendon.

Crittendon says having the services of your own private designer can help you get the graphics you are looking for. “We use in-house designers that offer a range of styles, for example, from artists who specialize in Tahitian designs popular today with West Coast boaters to more traditional looks favored in New England. Boaters start by submitting a request online at, or by calling 800-937-3300.
“After that, we aim for a high level of customer service and detail that you can’t find with competitors. For example, we had a request to design a graphic of a loving couple dancing above the name on their boat. But we wanted to know what kind of dancing – should the couple be in an embrace of a ballroom tango, or are they swing dancing? It’s that level of detail your own private designer can bring when using our Custom Boat Graphics service,” said Crittendon.
Adding to the high level of care is the 30-day “Oops Assurance Guarantee” on all BoatUS graphics. The Guarantee allows buyers to receive replacement decals free of charge if the graphic was damaged during installation. If getting the creative juices flowing is a challenge, BoatUS also has a list over 9000 names submitted over the last two decades as well as annual Top Ten Boat Names lists to help owners find the right choice.
