Below you can read a list of boat names for military service men and women or retired armed forces veterans.

The list of military boat name ideas was developed by myself and my brother who served himself and is in honor of all the brave service men and women who have done their bit for our country. 

There are a few funny boat names in there, but the majority of them have a patriotic theme, or have a play on words to do with military service.

For more advice on how to name your boat with a military theme, or for just some more ideas if you haven’t quite found the right veteran boat name in this list of boat names for military service men and women, try some of these ideas below.

What your name your boat as a veteran or military person is up to you, just make sure you don’t choose something that the US Coast Guard have banned. You can still use something  a bit dirty (here are some rude ideas) but bear in mind it might fall foul of your boat club or marina.
