Editor’s picks: The absolute best deals with at least 33% off
Sealskinz Unisex Waterproof Ultra Grip Glove – save 41% (now $41.01, was $70)
Highly recommended by our testing supremo Fox Morgan, Sealskinz offer plenty of warmth, grip and waterproofing for helming duties (although crew may want something more flexible). Grab a pair this Prime Day and you’ll save more than 40% (and there’s up to 32% off for UK shoppers too).
Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Multisport GPS Watch – save 34% (now $429.99, was $649.99)
Garmin watches are always a staple of the big Amazon sales and Prime Day 2023 is no different. Our pick of the bunch is this Fenix 6X watch, which includes the all-important built-in GPS. Buy it before midnight to save more than $200.
Seachoice Type II Personal Flotation Device, Pack of 4 – save 40% (now $42.05, was $70.09)
An essential item on board any boat, PFDs should be top of mind when refreshing your boat for summer. This four-pack of Type II PFDs is at its lowest 2023 price for Prime Day. The vests are US Coastguard approved for coastal use, but if you want to do some serious offshore sailing, you’ll need a Type I lifejacket.
Zeeporte snorkelling kit – save up to 39% (now $34.99, was $56.99)*
A boat is only as fun as its watersports kit and if your diving gear is in need of a refresh, this set from Zeeporte is a great option – including fins, mask, snorkel and carry case – plus its more than a third off.
Hydro-Force 10ft Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board – now £189.99, was £384.40, save 51%
Already one of the most affordable SUP brands on Amazon, Hydro-Force has slashed more than 50% off this 10ft inflatable for Prime Day. This set includes a kayak seat, hand pump, paddle and carry case – everything you need to start paddling.
Hangsun 12L Dehumidifier – save 46% (now £118.98, was £218.98)
This is a neat little dehumidifier and with a great saving today. Get this plugged in on your boat and keep the mold at bay throughout the year.
Intex Challenger K1 inflatable kayak set – save 42% (now £80.45, was £139)
Another budget brand that’s received high praise from our reviewers, Intex has chopped more than 40% off the price of its entry-level inflatable kayak for Prime Day. You get a hand pump and a paddle included, but the 100kg weight limit means this isn’t suitable for bigger boaters.
This portable power station offers 240V power on the go – a huge upgrade for smaller boats that don’t have a diesel generator (and you can use it when camping too!) Our reviewer Hugo Andreae praised this solar powered model as a potential game changer in his 2022 review.
Olympus 10×42 PRO Waterproof Binoculars – save 38% (now £299.99 ,was £479.99)

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AMAZON PRIME DAY
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Think of it as another Black Friday. Prime Day is a 48-hour flash sale from Amazon, where, for two days only, consumers can grab a whole host of bargains. It’s online only and is held to mark Amazon’s birthday. Prime Day started in 2015 on Amazon’s 20th birthday, with this year being its 28th.
Which brands are taking part in Prime Day 2023?
Lots of big brands are offering deals, such as Philips, Bosch, Miele and Samsung, but we’ve also seen plenty of sailing brands getting involved too, such as Bluefin, Helly Hansen, Sebago, Sperry and Steiner.
*How does sizing affect Prime Day deals?
Shopping for clothes in the Prime Day sales can be frustrating as the biggest discounts are always on the least popular sizes (XS or XL). That’s why we’ve marked the size-dependant discounts with an * as the right size for you may not have such a big discount.
What do you classify as a Prime Day deal?
We’ve covered a huge range of Prime Day deals, from waterproof speakers to dehumidifiers, and depending on the RRP, a small discount can add up to a lot. But we’ve dedicated this page to the big discounts, with 33% or more shaved from the list price.
When does Prime Day end?
The Prime Day sale ends at midnight tonight in whatever time zone you’re reading this. However, some deals may last longer, so we’ll update this page tomorrow in case you’re still mulling over your options then.
