Christmas Gifts for Yacht Sailors

Yachties seem to be endlessly tinkering and buying new gizmos and gadgets for their boats, so it can be hard to know what else they could possibly need. To help you navigate the stormy seas of trying to buy them a Christmas present, we’ve put together this handy guide to the best gift ideas for yacht sailors.


Dubarry Boot Socks


Super cosy and comfy, these will give much more support than your average sock. They’re a bit of a luxury, but that makes them the perfect gift, and any sailor will be grateful to have these on under their boots on a cold day.

This one is so useful for general maintenance and on-board emergencies, and it also comes with a protective pouch – an ideal stocking filler.

Northcore Waterproof Key & Mobile Phone Pouch


For anyone who spends a lot of time on or around the water, a waterproof case is a must. This one from Northcore is great because you can still use the touch screen and camera on your phone, whilst keeping it fully protected from the water!
