BoatNames.net was originally founded and operated by Gardner Jenkins in St. Petersburg, FL area for many years. After the tragic passing of Gardner some time ago this site was left dormant. Gardner helped thousands of Florida residents design and name their boats over the years.

In late 2018 the site was purchased by Ion Commerce LLC d/b/a BoatDecals.biz. In the spirt of what BoatNames.net used to be the site will live on providing a free place for boat owners to find inspiration to name their boat.
