Best Custom Captain Gifts for Dads

Note that we require you to purchase your custom boat artwork first. It takes less than 2 minutes to submit a photo of Dad’s boat; then, our artists will transform it into stunning artwork. Once we have that (and you approve it), we can easily print the artwork on your favorite merch selections from our store. 

#1. Dri-fit Long Sleeve Shirt

Crafted from premium moisture-wicking fabric, our Dri-fit long-sleeve shirt offers comfort and performance. It is carefully designed to keep Dad cool and dry even when it's warm outside.

This UPF 50 long-sleeve shirt effectively blocks harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays, making it ideal for long boating days when the sun is high. It is available in 6 different colors, and the size ranges from small to 4XL. We made it available for almost every body size.

David S.: “I was genuinely surprised at the quality of material. In the past, I have ordered from other sites, and the material is thin and flimsy. Not the case with the Custom Captain Dri-Fit hoodie. Even more impressive was the quality of graphics and coloring. After receiving an initial order for our primary crew, I got sizes for all of our casual fishing buddies and decided to splurge on them!”

We’re Big On Quality and Comfort!

All our custom boat shirts are printed using a process called dye sublimation. During this process, the ink seeps into the very fabric of the product, and sublimation prints don’t crack, peel, or fade away. Even after multiple washes, the print will look as good as new. 

The cotton shirts are printed on 100% gildan-heavy cotton materials. We always make sure to use the high-quality we know our customers love, allowing us to print your boat in high resolution for the perfect custom boat shirts.

And once you have your custom boat artwork in our system, you don’t have to order any specific number of boat gear. Yes, we do not have a minimum order requirement! Order only one Pelagic Dri-Fit Shirt, one Lightweight Windbreaker, or one American Flag Dri-fit Shirt, and that's fine with us.

You can also go with popular demand and order the Custom Dri-Fit Bulk Pack long-sleeve shirts, which are great for guests and giveaways.
