Kids jumping off the back of a boat into the water.

Summer is in full swing, so why not deck out your boat with some of the latest and greatest boat accessories?

But not to worry, we’ve done the hard work for you and picked out 7 of our must-haves! From coolers to caddys we’ve got you covered!

  1. Waterproof Cooler

Not only is this cooler perfect for summer days on the boat, but it’s also useful on road trips getting to your little piece of paradise! For added protection while you’re on the water we also recommend a tie-down kit. This will ensure your drinks and snacks remain secure even in the most turbulent wake!

  1. Flag Pole

Show off your nautical or national flags with this boat friendly telescoping flagpole. What we love about this flagpole is how easy it is to switch out flags! Out for a fishing trip? Let people know what your priorities are with this fisherman inspired flag! On your way to Margaritaville? Let people know you’re celebrating 5’o clock somewhere with this drink themed flag! Sailing in international waters? Let people know where you call home with state themed flags!

  1. Biodegradable and Disposable Towels

Got spills? Have no fear, biodegradable towels are here! Not only do we love these because they are environmentally friendly, but also because they’re space savers! Starting out at the size of a nickel and then growing to 8.5” X 9.5” after adding water, these are a must have for any boating outing!

  1. Easy-to-mount Trash Bag

Nothing can ruin a boating trip more than a full garbage bag blowing around the deck or worse, into the water. That’s why we love this mountable suction cup trash bag, specifically designed for boats! With a hinged cover you don’t have to worry about trash blowing around, all you have to worry about is enjoying your time on the water!

  1. Cabin Fan

Stay cool on hot and humid days with this compact cabin fan! We love that it easily mounts to wherever you need it and plugs in to the lighter-plug power connection. Available in both black and white, you can stay cool in style!

  1. Multi-Use Caddy

Because who doesn’t want all their boating essentials located securely within arm’s reach? Equipped with suction cups to hold the caddy in place, you don’t have to worry about your important items hitting the deck.

  1. Waterproof Phone Case

Nothing ruins a boating trip more than someone’s phone going overboard. But not to worry, we’ve got the product that will keep your precious phone safe and dry all day long! One of the best parts? It can also fit cameras and other electronic devices too! Tested underwater overnight and up to 100’, your electronics are in great hands!
