Boat Graphics - An easy and affordable way to customise your boat

Do you have a fun weekend boat and looking into ways to customise it? Have a look at our extensive collection of boat graphics. With our wide variety of option, we have a graphic to suite any runabout boat from fishing tinnies to wake boats or even jet skis but can also be customised to fit larger vessels.

Boat Graphics 

Our boat fish graphics are a great affordable way to completely transform the look of your boat. They can be added to our standard Boat Name Kits, sold on their own or, if you want to take it to the next level, we can create custom lettering to match the colours, shapes and effects of your boat graphic for a unique and consistent look.

Boat graphics are super easy to apply and will arrive in the same way as our Boat Name Kits, which you can read more about here.

Boat Graphics

All our boat graphics are high definition images digitally printed onto vinyl and finished off with a scratch resistant UV-protection laminate. The marine grade graphics will easily last you for 5 years and beyond when properly cared for.

They also make great gifts to anyone who just splurged on a new boat or has had their boat for years and it could use a bit of a spruce.

Do you have a bit more to spend or looking for something very specific? We can also create customised boat graphic or even full wraps to suite any needs and wishes.

If you have any questions about boat graphics, please don't hesitate to contact Boat Names Australia.

Names of famous Australian cruising yachts

Names of famous Australian yachts 

It might be a bit rude to copy these verbatim for your own boat, but with a bit of imagination, variations would not be too difficult, or maybe “II” or “Spirit of” would work well. Here are some of the best examples (Courtesy of Alan Lucas “Cruising Australians” Horwitz 1989


Smokey Cape

Raili (Trimaran)





Jelly Bean


White Pointer (See article called “What’s in a name” before using this one)














Imagination is virtually the only limiting factor. Also, when you go to “design-on-line at you can play with the name. font, colours and graphic enhancements until you are completely satisfied with your selection. Don’t forget that you can also call Chris at BOATNAMES if you want some professional design input.

Round the world clipper race


Yachts competing in the Round the World clipper race have returned to Southampton, England, the site of the start of the race.

The 10 masthead cutters arrived at Ocean Village after the 40,000-mile race.

A day of celebrations marked their return after 51 weeks. More than 500 amateur sailors from 40 countries took part.

All 10 yachts were accompanied up Southampton Water by a flotilla of craft.

BBC reporter Neil Sackley, who was on the water as the yachts sailed in, said: "It was an incredible sight. The flotilla of ships of all shapes and sizes was packed with family and friends welcoming the crews back."
