Boatmobiles are boat-shaped cars which are the main mode of transport for Bikini Bottomites. They first appear in the episode "Reef Blower" and play major roles in many episodes, often associated with Mrs. Puff and her boating school.

Boatmobiles have appeared in a variety of SpongeBob SquarePants merchandise, from toy cars to video games such as SpongeBob's Boating Bash.


They commonly are white with a red stripe and a thin black stripe in the middle. All boatmobiles are mostly two-seater, open-top convertibles, and shows generic traits to 1960s cars, such as vintage-styled interior and a distinctive, rough engine noise.
