10 Best Christmas Gifts For BoatersNicola Middleton-Groom
That time of year is upon us again. Looking for a gift for an inflatable boat enthusiast and not sure where to start? Whether they’re into fishing, cruising or exploring. We’ve got you covered in our Boatworld Holiday Christmas Gift Guide For Inflatable Boats.
The winter is a great time to get their setup upgraded and get them looking forward to next season! Whether they’re looking for more comfort, safety or fun. Check out our list below for the 10 most popular Christmas gifts for boaters.
This is an excellent system for mounting accessories to your boat. Simply glue, or screw a mount into your boat and the options are endless. Whether you want to attach a phone holder, an anchor lock, torch/camera holder or a cup holder for your drink of choice.
We recommend the fishing rod holder as a great place to start for anyone who fishes. This comes with a mount and the holder, you can use this mount for any other Borika accessories in the future. We also recommend IBS 2-part glue for attaching this to your boat.
Safety comes first when getting out on the water. We would recommend this Hansson inshore flare pack just in case it is ever needed to raise an alarm or make your position known. This pack contains two red handheld flares and two hand smokes all enclosed in a water-resistant stowable container. This is a great gift for someone getting into boating!
What better way to spend some time over the winter than getting your boat back looking it’s best! August Race are the go-to-brand for the best cleaning products. From rib, sib and trailer cleaners to GRP sealers and everything in between. So whether their boat needs some deep cleaning or just a polish August Race have you covered.
We recommend the August Race Liquid Rib, which is great for cleaning inflatable boat tubes and general use. An essential in a boat owner’s locker.
A boat cover is a fantastic gift for any boat owner that keeps they’re boat out. Great for protection against the winter weather and grime build up. Here at Boatworld we have high quality boat covers for inflatable boats, small sailing dinghies and sports boats.

What could be more important when out on the water for hours than comfort and storage. Kill two birds with one stone with a boat seat bag. This design is cushioned on the top with padding and has a zip up storage bag under the seat. Splash proof and portable, with a shoulder strap, boat seat bags are an essential for any level of boater.
See our range HERE, if you are not sure on sizing please get in touch.
On the theme of storage, when you’re out on the water, dry bags are the best sure-fire way to keep your most important valuables dry. These make for a good gift for anyone that spends time on or near to the water, a great way to get rid of that aquaphobia. You can also use these the reverse way round, for wet gear in a dry place.
One of our most popular upgrades is the Boatworld swivel seat. This makes a fantastic gift for someone who fishes or spends a long period of time sitting on their boat. The swivel seat is a comfortable, water UV & mould resistant folding boat seat. This sits on top of a rotating platform allowing for 360 degrees of ‘swivel’. This mounts via the platform which can sit in a variety of positions on your boat.
The Boatworld Fish Bag is a great bit of kit to add to your inflatable boat or small RIB. This bag attaches onto your boat via 6 attachment points which glue on with two aluminium poles between (120 x 3.2cm), these allow the bag to be in an open or closed position to keep your catch safe and contained. This can also be used to keep bait handy for distribution over the side of the boat.
This is a great gift for people wanting to fish regularly on their boat.
Electric Inflatable Boat Pump
Here at Boatworld we sell a range of boat pumps. Starting with the Super High-Pressure Pump. This pump is the perfect gift to make a boater’s life easier. Simply hook it up to a 12V power socket or battery terminal and get inflating. This pump delivers up to 20 psi in minutes, perfect for boats with a high pressure floor.
We also have the Electric High Volume Pump, this is similar but delivers up to 2.5 psi at high speed. This pump is ideal for boats that do not have a high pressure floor. Save time and effort. An electric pump can be a great gift for any inflatable boat owner.
Launch wheels are a solid gift for an inflatable boat owner. Attaching launch wheels to the back of your boat is a great way to make launching and retrieving your boat quicker and easier. With these on the boat can be wheeled from the bow, no more carrying the boat down to the shore.
We sell a whole array of launch wheels, you will just need to make sure the wheels are correct for their type of boat and its weight. We can assist with this so do not hesitate to give us a call. Shop the range HERE.
