If you just bought a new boat, congratulations!

You’ve officially joined the community of millions of other boaters. Now the fun begins, you get to turn your vessel from a factory constructed vehicle into your own personal vehicles of fun.

There’s a long checklist of things to do before you buy a boat.

However, rarely do people discuss what to do afterwards. Of course you have to worry about registration, getting a slip at your local marina, and more.

But what few talk about are all of the fun accessories and supplies you can buy once you own your boat. Whether you’re buying them for yourself or a new boat owner in your life, this list is sure to please any new boat owner.

So, let’s get into it!

Team Picks: Best Gifts For New Boat Owners

Custom Captain: Custom Boat Shirts

First on the list is one of the most personalized gifts you can get a new boat owner!

Custom Captain takes a photo of your boat and turns it into a graphic design. Once you’re happy with the design (like the other 5,000 boaters who have used them) you’re able to select which items you’d like to see your design printed on.

Our personal favorite is the Dri-Fit long sleeve shirts, but you have plenty to choose from.

This will make one of the best gifts for boaters, and the team at Custom Captain turns the product around quickly!

Captain & First Mate Gift Set: 6 Items

Looking for something a little less custom but still guaranteed to get a laugh?

Try the first mate gift set which includes captain and first mate hats and koozies. This is sure to be a hit for any his and her boat purchase.

And they come in a full 6 pack at a reasonable price.

Innocedear: Premium Dock Lines

While it might not be the sexiest gift, it’s certainly the most practical. All new boat owners never have enough lines, so an extra set can go a long way.

You won’t believe how often captains are losing their lines or they accidentally leave them behind. Especially when you’re docking up at happy hour, or tying up for a neighborhood raft up, these are some of the highest quality lines on the market!

HUSUKU: Underwater Lights

If you’ve got a lagoon in your backyard or the boat is visible at night, these underwater lights are a must!

Not only do they make the boat aesthetically cooler, but they also attract fish at night which is perfect for all of the night fishermen out there.

You can choose from white, green or blue lighting, and the product has a 3 year warranty so you can easily install them with confidence of the product quality.

JAXX: Bean Bag Chair for the boat

For the lake days when you might just be floating around, grab this comfy bean bag chair for you and the crew.

The material is UV resistant and waterproof so you have no worry about the color fading in the summer sun.

And best of all, there are over 20 different colors to choose from!

Better Boat: Cleaning Set

Something most new boat owners don’t realize is that owning a boat is a ton of work.

Between the salt, water, and sun, it’s easy for the boat to age quickly. That’s why a proper cleaning and wax set will do wonders for your boat! This set comes with microfiber cloths and is perfect for detailing both the inside and the outside of your boat.

And the bucket can collapse so you don’t have to worry about it taking up too much space on board!


Whether you’re a first-time boat owner or a long-time boat owner, these gifts and items will be sure to make your time on the water even better. And if you’re lucky enough to have a friend who just bought a boat – be sure to show up on Day 1 with a couple of drinks and an item from this list!
