EcoStone—Bluetooth Speaker + Speakerphone + Waterproof

Not every boater can carry a tune, but just about every boater likes to carry their tunes on board. The EcoStone is the perfect musical companion— not only does it offers great sound, it floats, features a built-in LED flashlight and can serve as a back-up battery charger for a mobile phone.

Wood Chart Nautical Maps

A truly unique nautical chart your favorite mariner can use to adorn the den—choose their favorite waterway or a dream destination. Crafted with laser cut layers of birch that create a three-dimensional map of the world below the water, it’s a map unlike any other.

SeaSucker Naked Flex Mount

This gift sucks—in the best possible way! With all the apps available for boating, smart phones and tablets are practically essential onboard equipment. The challenge is keeping these “mobile” devices secure on board. This gizmo does the trick—and the lucky recipient will thank you every time a rogue wave fails to toss his device overboard to Neptune.
