About Boat Name Gear
Personalized Gear and Gifts for Boaters
Boat Name Gear was started in southern New England with the goal of helping boaters enjoy the boating lifestyle even when they are not on the water. With custom embroidered clothing and personalized gear displaying your boat name, you can feel like you are on your boat all year round.
My passion for boat names started more than 30 years ago. I grew up on the Connecticut coast, born into a boating and fishing family. My earliest memories involve cruising around Long Island Sound in various powerboats, sailboats and row boats with family and friends.
Spotting the names on the backs of other boats has always been interesting to me.
Seeing the boat names in my home port is like seeing old friends; but it is especially fun to visit a new port of call and see all the new boat names... It is exciting to see the various hailing ports listed under each name. Did that boat really sail up here all the way from the Bahamas?! Look! They're from Connecticut, too! Hey, there's another 'Second Wind'.
Whether you are getting gear for yourself or as a gift, I hope you enjoy the products and service you receive from us.
Please drop us a line at any time and let me know what you think!
