We've Made Our List And Checked It Twice!

Trying to find the perfect gift can lead to hours and hours of searching. Don't stress! We've compiled a list of the top gifts to get for that boater in your life. Whether they enjoy fishing, technology, watersports, their dog, splashing around, or relaxing, we've found the gift for them. 
  • men fishing in large waves

    For the avid fisherman ... or those that want to be

    A tackle case is always helpful, especially if theirs is a bit worn out. And once they’ve got their catch, a fish filet knife will be perfect. Give them a rub-a-way the odor bar to keep their hands smelling clean. And if you’re not sure a multitool is a great way to go! 
  • man sitting on the edge of a fishing boat

    For the techie who loves the latest gadgets

    If their radar, fish finder, or GPS is out of date, MarineMax has the latest innovations and the service team to install it. If big sounds are what you’re after, an upgraded speaker system is the way to go. Add on a GoPro or a waterproof smart watch and they’ll be ready for the action. 
  • wakeboarder behind a boat

    For those that can't get enough wake

    Adventure is on the horizon with a new board or set of skis. Don’t forget the board rack to make sure they have somewhere to store it. Top that off with a rash guard and helmet, then they will be set and safe for one radical day on the water.
  • dalmatian wearing lifejacket with man fishing

    For the dog lover in your life

    What’s a day out on the water without a lovable pooch? A dog life jacket may be in order or just a few floating toys to have a little fun. Make sure they drink plenty of water with a travel bowl and when the day is done wipe them off with a microfiber towel.
  • man on stand up paddle board in front of boat

    For the one who loves having fun in the sun

    Jump on in and enjoy the water with inflatables. Everyone’s Instagram favorites are the Giant swan, pineapple, or even pizza. Paddle around on a Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP) or maybe a kayak. Have a look under the sea with a set of snorkel or dive gear. When in doubt a floating mat is the perfect versatile gift! 
  • man and woman celebrating with tervis in their hands

    For the red solo cup collector

    Wet your whistle using a Tervis, Silipint, or Corkcicle.  Keep your drinks in a YETI then crack open a cold one with a miniature anchor bottle opener. If the waves start rocking, don’t sweat or spill by using slip on coasters.
  • family on boat and in the water

    For the one you can't figure out

    There is nothing quite like a few little stocking stuffers to make the holiday brighter. Consider a pair of Sunglasses and floating retainers to go with them. Make the captain in your life happy with an all-weather notebook and a Seadek helm pad. Don’t leave the creature comforts at home, why not a luxe towel or outdoor blanket
  • For the one you love the most

    Make their ultimate dream come true and get them a boat or a yacht! At MarineMax we have a variety of vessels that are perfect for every type of boater. Whether they just like to lounge around, go fishing, have an adventure, or simply cruise. Our sales consultant can work with you to find the ideal boat or yacht for that special someone.
