How Glove Boxes Are Used on Boats

A boat glove box, also known as a boat console glove box, is a valuable addition to any type of boat, be it a bass boat, ski boat, fishing boat, yacht, or any other type of watercraft. A glove box provides a convenient and secure storage space for all your essentials, including keys, electronics and personal items. It also helps fill any extra space in your boat's center console and can even be used to cover any holes or gaps. Read More

Boat Glove Box Materials: Starboard, Acrylic and Molded Plastic

When considering a boat glove box, it's important to think about the materials it's made from, as well as the installation process. Three common materials used for boat glove boxes are King Starboard, acrylic and molded plastic.

Starboard is a popular choice for its durability and resistance to the elements, making it a great option for boaters who want a long-lasting and weatherproof glove box. Acrylic is also a great option for its glossy finish and clarity (if not colored), which allows for easy visibility of items stored inside. Molded plastic is a lightweight and affordable option, making it a great choice for boaters who want a budget-friendly glove box.

Locking vs. Non-locking vs. Open Boat Glove Boxes

Boaters should also bear in mind the type of door they would like for their glove box. It’s important to consider the access needed and whether a doored, keyed or open cubby is necessary for the intended application of the glove box. The type of access chosen will depend on what is to be stored in the glove box and the level of protection needed. For those who want even more security, a boat glove box with a lock or latch can provide peace of mind. You can rest assured that your items will be safe and secure, even when you're not on the boat. And if you're worried about theft, a marine glove box with a lock can help deter any would-be thieves. Just be sure to make copies of the keys! Read More
