Easy, Affordable Upgrades 

Cell Phone Holder

There are many downfalls to stashing your phone in a storage compartment aboard the boat or on top of the console.

Additional Cupholders

Your boat will come with a few built-in cupholders but all of those will be put to use fairly quickly. Similar to where you would place your phone on a console you may put your drinks there too. Ultimately putting your drink at risk of tipping over and spilling onto the boat. You can find additional cup holders that can clamp onto a rail, be suction-cupped on, or sticker on as well. There are plenty of options depending on what your preference of adhesion is. 

Adding More Seating 

Depending on the size of your vessel and if room allows you might want to consider adding additional seating. A fun multipurpose way is to purchase a cooler that doubles as a seat cushion. These are a great cheap alternative to doing a physical upgrade to your vessel. You can get creative and customize your cooler and cushion to compliment your boat design.

Especially when you have the whole crew aboard to enjoy a sunny afternoon you will need a place to throw away the empties. You can add a portable trash can to any storage or cabinet door. Whether you want to screw it in or use adhesive this is an easy addition.
