The team at have created the following infographic for boaters and travelers which ranks every U.S. State by how boater-friendly it is.

They used a long list of criteria to determine this ranking, including data on weather, coastline, number of marinas, number of licensed boats in the state, etc. The results offer a nice variety, representing states in regions all over the country.

If the results surprise you, remember that cost and average number of warm, sunny days play a big role in ranking these states! Every boater has their own preferences on what’s most important, whether that’s cost, weather, or scenery. This graphic represents an average score of the many factors that boaters consider when setting sail.
