15+ Beautiful Sailboat Urns & Sailing Memorials

A sailing cremation urn is a lovely way to honor your loved one’s personality and interests.

Sailing is a fun, exhilarating and yet relaxing pastime. When on a sailboat, the thrill of the high seas is combined with the relaxation of a day in the sun with the soothing sounds of the ocean in your ears.

Sailing can be both a family and an individual activity, has health benefits relating to physical fitness and mental acuity, and can be surprisingly inexpensive in comparison to many other hobbies.

It is thus no surprise that many people are very passionate about sailing, and so when it comes time to remember and honor a boating enthusiast’s life, sailboat cremation urns and memorials can provide the ideal means to create a personal memorial fitting to their memory.

Sailboat Cremation Urns

Here are some of our most popular sailboat cremation urns.

Soft Breezes Sailing Urn

The Soft Breezes Sailing Urn is one of our premier series of American made wood carved cremation urns.

Available in walnut wood, as pictured above, or in oak or maple, this urn features a wonderful laser engraved scene assembled from a variety of hardwoods in their natural colors.

The background is white maple, with the red sail on the boat carved from rosewood. Cherry wood is used for the tree and hill in the foreground, as well as for the intricate border surrounding the ocean scene.

Seagulls and a distant coastline complete the imagery of your sailor on their final journey homeward.

Laser Carved Soft Breezes Urn

Using the same scene as the first sailboat urn on our list, the Laser Carved Soft Breezes Urn is affordably priced and gorgeously produced using solid natural cherry wood.

The sailing scene is laser etched deep into the surface of the cherry wood to create a memorial fitting for a sailor, with the indelible look and feel of genuine Pacific Northwest woodcraft.

Sailing Ship Cremation Urn

This Sailing Ship Cremation Urn hearkens back to a bygone era of exploration and adventure. Made in the USA from your choice of walnut (as pictured), oak, or maple wood.

The ocean vessel scene includes rolling waves, the sun setting on the horizon, and a soaring seagull along with the masted ship. A classy choice to remember a sailboat enthusiast with old-fashioned sensibilities.

Sailing Ship Octagon Urn

The Sailing Ship Octagon Urn features a similar scenes as depicted in the previous urn, but inlaid into a different shape of cremation urn. The wood box features eight sides, hence the name “Octagon”.

While not a sailboat per se (technically a barque), it is a boat and it has sails and many prefer the timelessness of the old-fashioned high seas sailing vessel. This in one of our most popular sailing designs.

Seascape Cremation Urn

The Seascape Cremation Urn shows a yacht fighting splendidly through the choppy waters off the wooded coast as storm clouds roll in.

Inlaid from various hardwoods in their native colors to create a vivid 3-dimensional effect, this sailboat cremation urn is for the truly adventurous sailor.

Seascape Sailboat Cremation Urn Keepsake

This is the smaller “keepsake” version of the Seascape urn. The side angle of the photograph allows you to see a little more clearly the “dimensional” effect created by the different hardwoods layered together.

Made in the USA, this sailing urn holds a tiny amount (only 1 cubic inch) of cremated remains in a small capsule in the back of the keepsake. This allows you to keep a small portion of the remains (and honor the memory of a sailing enthusiast) when the cremated remains are buried or divided among relatives.

Floating Viking Boat Urn

A burial at sea befitting of any Viking warrior or queen. These hand constructed Viking vessels are designed to descend into the deep after five minutes of beginning their voyage.

Made entirely of eco-friendly and biodegradable materials in the USA, an engraved name plate can also be fixed to this wonderful little vessel.

Sailing Cremation Urn

Crafted from your choice of oak (as pictured), walnut, or maple wood, the Sailing Cremation Urn is laser engraved with an idyllic sunset and sailboat scene.

Clouds and seagulls float over the shimmering ocean waters as the boat sails off into the distant horizon.

An optional wood base is available, and, as with all of our wood urns, a laser engraved inscription of name, dates, and more can be laser etched onto the top of back of this sailboat urn.

Lighthouse Cherry Cremation Urn

The Lighthouse Cherry Urn has its focus on the lighthouse atop the rocky heights in the foreground, but it makes our list of sailboat cremation urns because of the yacht sailing valiantly along in the background of the laser carved scene.

Solid cherry wood brilliantly crafted, this beautiful cremation urn is perfect as a memorial for any ocean or sailing enthusiast. Also available in a smaller, 24 cubic inch keepsake size.

Mother of Pearl Metal Urn

A stunning, handmade traditional urn, this beautiful piece is laser engraved and inlayed with mother of pearl. The nautical theme is comprised of the compass and the ship and is highlighted by the pearl anchor which sits front and center.

A lovely choice for anyone who loved sailing or boating, or just the sea in general.

Groton Sailboat Maple Urn

Handcrafted of gorgeous maple wood in the US, this sailboat urn is an excellent choice for those that loved the sea or sailing. Made from sustainable and locally sourced materials, each urn is exceptionally crafted to provide the best quality for your loved one’s resting place.

Biodegradable Wooden Ship Urn

A very unique and memorable way to bury your loved one’s remains at sea. This beautifully handcrafted vessel is biodegradable and will carry the ashes on the water’s surface for a brief time before making its decent into the waters below.

Almost reminiscent of the traditional Norse ship burials, this is a modern, eco-friendly way to deliver your loved one back to the sea that they loved.
