Do you long to go cruising, to leave dry land behind and launch into the deep blue for weeks, months, or even years? Properly outfitting a boat for cruising is critical for a voyage that’s both safe and fun. Making passage across the ocean requires extensive preparation and the right equipment. At OceansMall, our maritime experts can help you select the top-quality equipment and gear you need for a safe, pleasurable, and memorable voyage.
Checklist for Cruising
When considering what’s needed to outfit a boat for cruising, it’s easy to list things of major importance - such as an anchor, life jackets, a GPS, and a radio. But there are other necessities that can easily be overlooked as they’re not as obvious at first blush. For example, when navigating the ocean, you should have a combination of electronic and traditional navigation equipment. Then, should your electronics fail, you can still find your way to a safe harbor by using the tools sailors have relied on for thousands of years. Likewise, having a variety of radio equipment ensures you are able to communicate with anyone in range, and also provides you with a back-up should one piece of equipment fail.
Below, we have listed some of the key equipment and gear necessary for cruising. If you have questions about your vessel’s readiness, the staff at OceansMall can help you compile a complete checklist to get your vessel ready for cruising.
- Grab bag

- Flares, electronic or smoke
- Medical kit
- Life jackets & gloves
