Oh, and your face is getting a Swedish massage from the wind blowing against it. Oh, and the wind, it’s stroking your hair with the whisper of a brush of air.

The Boating Lifestyle is Why We Do What We Do. It’s Everything to us.


Living the boating lifestyle isn’t about nautical outfits. It’s not about deck shoes either or owning fancy things. In fact, it’s not even about owning a boat, and it certainly isn’t about having the latest toys. The boating lifestyle is about time well spent. It’s about quality time with good people.

If that sounds like the kind of life you want, then #bomolife and the boating lifestyle is for you.
