10 great ideas for your Boston Whaler boater
Holiday shopping can be tough but having a Boston Whaler boater on your list makes it easy. Boating is gear-intensive, so you have lots of options for fishing and boating gifts. Here are ideas to jump start your list-making.

Kenyon Portable Grill

A one-burner grill is easy to carry from the house to the boat and will grill up fish and veggies when plugged in (generator or large inverter needed). If there’s already a grill aboard, check out Kenyon’s grilling accessories that will make cooking delicious meals a snap.
Waterway Guides – Multiple Regions
If your Boston Whaler boater wants to explore, help them find their way with a Waterway Guide. These handy chart kits are full of useful information including details on marinas, fuel docks, restaurants, bridge clearances and of course, pure navigation information. They’re perfect for route planning as well as generating ideas on where to go next. There are numerous regions from which to choose like the Chesapeake or the ICW, so dial in your boater’s cruising area or expand their horizons.
Sunski Polarized Sunglasses
Good sunglasses are vital for a boater. Protect their eyes from harsh glare from the water or white decks with a pair of polarized sunglasses by Sunski. There are dozens of frame styles and lens colors to choose from so you’re bound to find a good fit for both men and women. Sunglasses have a way of going overboard, getting crushed or just going missing so an extra pair will always be appreciated and Sunski offers their “forever warranty” so check out the details.
Boating is about more than just about fishing and cruising. Take a break on a hot day by going skiing. HO Sports water skis offer everything from freeriding combos for beginners to high-end tournament skis and equipment for serious skiing. They also have a full line of accessories to choose from, too.
Hyperlite Life Vests
A lifejacket is an absolute neccessity for waterskiers and wakeboarders, so check out Hyperlite’s selection of stylish and safe PFDs. U.S. Coast Guard and Transport Canada-approved life vests are available in all sizes (XS to 4WL) and some are even specifically designed for women.
Boston Whaler Branded Apparel
Boston Whaler boaters love their boats so why not opt for a Boston Whaler logo shirt or cap? For long days on and in the water, a quick-drying rash guard will be appreciated while a jacket or hoodie will take the edge off chilly mornings of fishing.
Just like fishing tackle, there can never be too many cooling options on board. A Yeti cooler will never go amiss when packing beverages, lunch or even extra ice to keep your catch cool in the fish box. Choose from a small soft-sided lunch pack, a 45-gallon hard cooler to keep on deck, or anything in between.
Whether searching for the next buoy, checking out an anchorage or scanning for fish, binoculars always come in handy. You can opt for a pocket-sized set that your boater can pack in a kit or go full-sized with options form Fujinon, Steiner, West Marine and more. Binoculars can be basic or full-featured with image stabilization and top-notch optics. The price will reflect the features and quality so decide just how good your boater has been and shop accordingly.
Mpowered Luci Inflatable Solar Light
Extra light is always welcome whether on deck or in the cockpit. Now there’s one that’s inflatable so it packs down into a slim disk but still provides great light. With multiple LED lights the Luci Light is solar powered so it needs no batteries. Just charge it during the day and it will shine most of the night. Use one under the hardtop to make the boat more visible or place it on the table for ambience during a cockpit dinner. Certain models now also include a USB charger so you can top off your cellphone too.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to best gifts for the boater in your life. Start with these Boston Whaler holiday gift guide ideas and then personalize to your heart’s delight.
