Struggling to find the ideal gift....?


We know that finding the perfect Christmas gift for the boater in your life can sometimes be a little tricky, especially if you've tried to buy for them before... However, there is always that special gift that can make any boater smile and we think we've chosen a few of the best picks for this years Christmas list....


It's not just boats that get wrapped in the Winter....!


We've had a good look around and here are the ones that caught our eye which you can view by clicking on the links below. Although we haven't trialled or tested them ourselves, the Boat Central Team are all Boat Owners, so we think we have a pretty good idea what Boaters like....!


Nanopresso   When the sun rises on the boat the first port of call is an exceptional coffee. What better way to start the day than with an expresso maker. The "Nanopresso" is ideal for boats as it's a compact size so will be at home in any galley.

Magazine Subscription   This is the gift that keeps on giving, each and every month. You can choose from a selection of magazines and publications which will be greatly received on a dark Winters night or a Lazy Summer day on-board.

Stellarscope Star Finder   Whether it's a romantic night afloat or a solo voyage, looking up at the night sky gets a whole lot more interesting with this star finder. You can learn about constellations and understand a little of how they used to navigate in days gone by.

Inflatable Kayak   It's not ground breaking but it's fun. If the person you're buying for is active and has room on-board, what better way of truly getting out on the water when you're at anchor. To keep on their good side, we recommend you buy a pump..!

Mugs   A really safe gift to buy and an inexpensive option. The one that makes us laugh has a slogan on the side which is written upside down and reads "If you can read this, I have capsized".... Perfect as a stocking filler or Secret Santa.

Railmount Boat BBQ   Who'd have thought you could actually BBQ on-board..? Well now you can with this rail mounted BBQ system. Using disposable BBQ's this system attaches to the side of a boat and voila, you're ready to start cooking.

Kindle   Well it might not sound an obvious choice but hear us out... The Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, has a battery charge that can last up to a week and 8GB of storage. So whether you're lazing around on deck or nestled in down below, you'll never be bored, on-board.

Stemless Wine Glasses   Does enjoying a glass of wine on-board during the Summer with these nautical themed wine glasses sound idyllic..? We think so.... They're not made of glass and are durable with flat bases for stability. 

Marine Binoculars   You can't go wrong with a pair of binoculars as every boater likes to have a good look around. At an affordable price, we like the Asaklitt 7x50mm binoculars. They have a rubber surround and auto focus and better still, they're lightweight and waterproof.

Windproof Jacket   All boaters need an array of clothing to cope with extremes of weather. We don't think you can wrong with a Helly Hanson water repellent, lightweight Seven J Jacket. It's warm, windproof and has breathable high-tech fabric. You can never have enough lightweight jackets or fleeces in the UK...!


Fun and novelty gifts to pop in the Christmas Stocking


There are thousands of inexpensive, nautical gifts that you can buy, but don't forget the one's that make us laugh. From "Roger the Cabin Boy" baseball hats to a set of "Ship Faced" whisky tumblers there's a lot out there to make us chuckle...!


The team at Boat Central would like to thank you for making us your "Go-To" place in 2019 and we all wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year...!
