ALEXANDRIA, Va. (LOG NEWS SERVICE) — Seas the Day topped the Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatU.S.) list of the top 10 most popular boat names in 2011, as determined by an annual survey of boaters’ requests to the boating organization’s boat lettering and graphics department.
Nauti Buoy and Aquaholic placed second and third on the association’s 22nd annual list of top boat names.
The other names that made the list include: (4) Dream Weaver, (5) Pegasus, (6) Serenity Now, (7) Second Wind, (8) Liquid Asset, (9) Miss Behavin’ and (10) Blew By You, BoatU.S. reported.
This year’s list included three newcomers — Nauti Buoy, Serenity Now and Blew By You, a popular racing sailboat moniker and word play on an old Roy Orbison song, “Blue Bayou,” which was made famous by Linda Ronstadt, BoatU.S. said. Two other boat names made the list for the second time — Dream Weaver and Pegasus. All others are multi-year repeats.
