I spend a lot of time on the road and meet a lot of truckers due to the business I am in. Given how long their days can be, it’s never a surprise to me that so many of them like to unwind on the water in their boat, as it’s a welcome break from the highway.

When we get talking about boats, I always love to find out what they’ve called theirs; it can tell you a lot about the person’s character and personality.

Over the years, I’ve made a mental note of some of the best boat names for truckers I’ve heard, so decided it was time to publish them on Pontoonopedia.

Some of them are funny boat names for truckers, some rude, and others just creative and clever.

And the great thing is, not all of these trucker-inspired boat names have been used, so feel free to take one of them if you are looking for a clever name for your vessel.

Boat names for beer lovers

Oh, and before I forget… I’ve never met a trucker who didn’t like a beer. I am sure there are some tee-total ones, but I’ve not met any.

With that in mind, I wanted to also share with you some of the funniest boat names that are related to beer and alcohol.

You can see the huge list of beer-inspired names here.

The last word…

Not many people are lucky enough to have access to a boat, and even fewer have the amazing privilege of actually being able to name one.

You should not take this level of responsibility lightly!

But, a word of warning.

There are certain names you can’t use. You can see which names the US Coast Guard have banned elsewhere on Pontoonopedia.
