Importance of Drink and Cup holders on Boats 

Marine cup holders often become a convenient area to hold drinks, phones, sunscreen, trash, or that day's selection of fishing lures, weights, and rigs. Although it's better to have dedicated boat storage for all things on your boat, boat cup holders are still super handy and important! That's why we incorporate marine drink holders into many of our marine products including; cutting boards, storage boxes, boat tables, and serving trays. When shopping for cup holders for your boat or any outdoor application there are some helpful things to keep in mind, including size, installation, and features.

Common Types of Drink and Cup Holders Found in Boats

Seasuckers mounted cup and drink holders - Seasuckers are a great way to temporarily secure almost anything to a flat surface on your boat. They provide a super-strong suction and can be used to hold drink holders, rod holders, and even cutting boards.

Drink can coolers -  keep your drinks cold and in place! They are great to use onboard, at the pier or dock, or even while you are out in a kayak or canoe. In addition, the drink can coolers we offer have suction technology so they do not tip over!

Rod holder and cup holder combo -  These holders serve a double purpose and really come in handy on a boat. They fit where a standard flush mount rod holder would but have a wider top section so they can hold a variety of drinks in addition to your fishing rod.

Drink caddies can be adjusted to fit your beverages and additional accessories, making them an excellent choice to take on any boat trip.
