To make your experience even more fun and enjoyable, don’t forget to bring these top 5 boating accessories on your trip.

  1. RoboCup holders

Drinking on a boat is a perilous affair, no matter what’s in your cup. To avoid spills and wasted drinks, get the RoboCup which you can install on your boat without any additional tools.

Its original design has an innovative clamping function that lets you easily attach the cup holder to poles or rails where you can easily reach.

The RoboCup is made of stainless-steel hardware and has a high-quality rubber grip to ensure that your drinks stay in place, no matter how bumpy it gets on the waters. Drinks, fishing rods, umbrellas, cellphones; a RoboCup holder can carry them all, so don’t leave without it!

Whether you are fishing or discovering the great waters of Australia, RoboCup holders are a great companion on your boating trip.

  1. LED cup holders

Boating is such a fun activity that can get you going well into the night. In which case, a LED cup holder will come in handy. This way you’ll know exactly where your drinks or fishing rods are placed.

This special cup holder is illuminated by soft LED lighting in blue, red, green, or white. It has a standard 3-5/8” hole, a robust UV stable molded housing, and a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel rim.

The LED light system is also completely waterproof, so no need to worry if it gets wet. Plus, the LED cup holder also has an easy draining feature  top which helps keep your valuables dry at all time.

  1. Waterproof Bluetooth speakers

Bring your favorite music on board with a Bluetooth speaker. But not just any ordinary Bluetooth speaker as saltwater and exposure to harsh UV rays can wear them down real quick. 

Instead, pack a portable, waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Choose a design that has a mount or clip to make sure it stays in place no matter how fast and shaky the boat runs.

Some waterproof Bluetooth speakers can also float – a great plus when you want to bring your music closer to the water when taking a dip.

  1. Marine BBQ’s

Being on a boat is fun, but enjoying a barbecue on a boat is a real party. Aside from having something delicious to eat other than cold food, it also provides a great bonding opportunity for family and friends.

Make this dream party a reality with a portable marine barbecue grill. Investing in a quality boat grill allows you to cook hot food during your boating trips.

A boat grill may be powered by electricity, propane, or both. It also comes in various sizes, so it’s relatively easy to find one that fits your vessel.

Don’t worry about safety – most marine BBQ’s are equipped with key safety features to make sure that you’ll be out of danger while enjoying a scrumptious meal on board.

  1. Dry Bags

Dry bags are a must-have when going on a boat if you’re going to bring your mobile phone, money, digital camera, and/or power bank.

A dry bag is a waterproof pouch made from nylon or vinyl, and is coated with silicone which is a water-repelling material. Dry bags will keep your valuables safe and protected from water damage.

Aside from being waterproof, dry bags are also lightweight and can be easily carried around compared to backpacks. Some vinyl dry bags are also clear, which lets you see its content easily, making them great for organizing your stuff.

Both nylon and vinyl dry bags can also be rolled up easily and are rather simple to store.

When buying a dry bag, make sure to think ahead of time about the things you want to keep safe during a boat trip. This will enable you to pick the right size of the dry bag that fits all your valuables.
