Anchoring a Brand: Boat Puns to Boost Maritime Marketing

By October 24, 2023No Comments

Anchored in Fort Lauderdale, the “yachting capital of the world,” Durée & Company is at the helm of PR for the yachting and maritime industries. Navigating the waves of events such as the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the Miami International Boat Show and the Palm Beach International Boat Show, we’re not just in the vicinity of the action – we’re in the thick of it. And as with any industry, injecting humor, creativity and relatability into branding and strategic public relations, social media and marketing can set a business apart in a sea of competitors.

With over two decades of charting successful courses for our maritime clients, we at Fort Lauderdale- and Aspen-based public relations firm Durée & Company, Inc. compiled a treasure trove of nautical boat puns that can help a brand “knot” only create memorable branding but also “sail” smoothly through the waters of PR, social media and marketing. Here they are:


Yacht do you want?

I have very Pacific taste

How a-boat it?

Knot too shabby

It’s a-boat time!

I’m all a-boat loving you

Don’t get tied down by pier pressure

Water you doing today?

Seas-ing the day

It’s always ferry fun with us around

Yacht to be kidding

How a-boat that

Anchors away

I’m feeling nauti

Knot bad at all

Canoe believe it

Row-mantic sunsets

It’s a-boat time

Sea you later

Shore thing

Sail-ebration time

Oh ship!

Dock and roll

Buoy that was fun

Don’t be salty

Waves hello

Whatever floats your boat

Stop pier pressure

On a tight ship

Nauti-cal but nice

Boat-iful memories

Making waves


Feeling ferry good

Avoiding pier group pressure

Seas the day

Knot working today

Steer clear

Getting ship faced

Pier-less beauty


Fishing for compliments

In deep ship

Sail-ebrate good times

Let minnow if you’re coming

Drop it like its yacht

All hands on deck-ade

Rowed trip

Oar you kidding me

Dock and awe

Don’t rock the boat

At sea-level

All aboard the struggle boat

Boat-load of fun

Set sail and soar

Anchor-age is just a number


Stay ship shape

Sea-zing opportunities

Water you thinking

Keep things on an even keel

Riding the current trends

Tidal wave of excitement

Overboard with ideas

Rudder than ever

Helm-ing the way

Stern approach to quality

Bow down to the experts

All about that bass and boats

Life’s better on a boat

Moored to perfection

Sailing smooth

Beyond the sea-ling

Water-tight plans

Anchoring expectations

Cruising through challenges

Charting the course

Hull of a time

In ship-shape condition

Keep calm and stay afloat

Wake and sail

Port of call for excellence

Knot too complicated

Decked out in style

A starboard story

Cast away your worries

Moor often than not

First mate in quality

Going full-throttle

Keel-ing over with laughter

Full steam ahead

A boat-load of opportunities

Propelling forward

Sails and tales

Surfing the sea-nario

Buoyant budgets

Harbor-ing the best

Tug at your heartstrings

Flipping over the fleet

Rowing in the right direction

Hull-o to new horizons

Paddle your own canoe

Batten down the hatches

Time to coast along

Land ahoy

Current situation: Sailing

Wave goodbye to worries


While the aesthetics and features of a boat are essential, the story and ethos of the brand are what often anchors a buyer’s decision. And what better way to make a brand’s narrative more relatable than with some light-hearted nautical puns?

At Durée & Company, we dive deep into what makes a maritime brand unique. Beyond just the features of a yacht or boat, we focus on the story of the brand, the promise and the experience. But as we weave these narratives, we also know the power of a good pun to capture attention and remain memorable in the minds of a brand’s clientele.

Whether a brand is introducing a luxury yacht line, announcing an event at a boat show or engaging with its audience on social media, our curated list of nautical puns will ensure the brand’s message not only gets across but also leaves a smile on the face of the right audience. Let’s make waves together in the maritime industry. Contact us to learn more about our services in the Marine & Yacht industry.
