The name of our boat, as well as that of our children, helps us to identify it all, to make it unique. The name of your boat is necessary in emergency situations or danger, as well as a mandatory requirement internationally, most of the time it is in the stern since this is the most visible area of the boat, to increase the visibility also They can be applied in different parts of the same as the life buoys.
What is a tradition is that most of the owners of the boats give them a woman’s name, this because traditionally the sea has been a place for men and in homage of his mother or his wife as a symbol of protection , also the names of Greek or Roman mythology and the name of the owners where the owner is from.
At the end of the day what is most involved is the originality and practicality of each person, they can be beautiful, ugly, long or short, the important thing is that you represent yourself as the owner.
The baptism ceremony of your boat
This is one of the most traditional and ceremonial ceremonies related to the world of the sea. It is usual for these acts to be attended by ladies of royalty or of high society, with the purpose of taking the responsibility of being the godmothers.
This is done based on a belief and prevent the sea from turning against us. When changing the name of our boat, is the belief that you should not remove the name if you do not add another for example the first owner gave the name of “Maria” and the second owner wants to give the name “Isabel” what should do is combine the two names and baptize it as “María Isabel” in order not to have bad luck the boat at sea.
