What a rough night we all had “working” on testing these two must-have boat accessories for the wine drinker. These large plastic wine glasses and wine glass cup holders go hand in hand, and will give you a return on investment immediately. Glass stemware on boats is a no-no as most stem-ware won’t fit in the cupholders, which can (and will) result in broken glass, or red wine spills on your upholstery or clothes as the boat moves about. If you are going to drink wine on your boat, you need these two great products.
When I’m on a sunset cruise, I typically prefer a glass of wine (or a bottle if I’m not driving). After naively bringing various wine glasses with us, and consequently spilling red wine on ourselves or the boat, we had reserved ourselves to drinking wine out of Solo cups. Solo cups are great when we’re day-drinking domestics or partaking in drinking games, which we do from time to time, so there’s certainly a time and place for them.
However, we try to keep it classy on the lake and Solo cups are just not nice enough, nor are they the proper receptacle for wine. I don't remember Toby Keith saying that they were fine for wine cruising, and they also create a lot of trash. The sunset booze cruise with a more “distinguished” crowd requires proper drinking receptacles, and here you have the perfect option. At only $25 for 8, and the matching wine-glass you aren’t breaking the bank to add a little style for you and your guests.
So now that you're drinking out of the right glass and your friends are all impressed, you'll really want to blow their minds with these wine-glass cup holders
These bad boys come in around $11 each and work exactly as intended. We tested the glasses full with the boat at full speed--no spilling. We crossed several wakes at various speeds—no spilling. We used the exact jumbo sized wine glasses above, so there was enough room for the wine to move around without a danger of spillage, and the cup-holders kept the glasses firmly in place.
