about My Boat Life

My Boat Life is about your boating lifestyle.

My Boat Life is a robust boating lifestyle niche website focused on topics that matter to the average recreational boater.

My Boat Life was established in 2010 as a personal boating lifestyle blog and has grown to become a boating lifestyle site that now features boating topics such as useful boat products and gear, ways to have more fun on the water, family boating, buying and selling tips, marina info, boating lifestyle features and much more.

Boaters can also visit our Boat Gift Guide or Boat Gear Guide available year round for boating gear, gifts and accessories for nearly every part of their boating life.

In 2014 we also launched BoaterKids.com - a boating lifestyle site devoted to resources for kids who were "born & raised on the water". Parents (or grandparents) can find valuable resources and information on everything for a kid's boating lifestyle - from boat safety and fun ideas for kids on the water to essential kid boating gear.
