I’ve previously put together list for doctors, so thought it high time I helped out the nurses who might be reading Pontoonopedia, with a list of the best boat names for a nurse.

The ideas below are ones I have come up with myself or found via Internet searches, all of which I believe would suit a boat owner working in the nursing profession.

Some of these use a clever pun with some nurse terminology, whilst others have a humorous and funny angle – they are even some nurse boat names here are a little bit dark.

Tips on naming your boat

It’s not easy giving your boat a name.

You should come up with something that not only captures your own personality, but also something that means a lot to you.
