If you were looking for the article about the other Boaty, then see Boaty (Gone).

Boaty is SpongeBob's boatmobile that first appears in the episode "No Free Rides." It later reappears in the video game SpongeBob's Boating Bash.


Boaty is an old-fashioned-looking boat. It is brown and shaped like a regular boat. It has a radio that is shaped like SpongeBob's face and a license plate that reads "IM-RDY," a nod to SpongeBob's catchphrase.

Unlike any other boatmobiles, this is the only one that has four doors just like a regular sedan.

Role in episode

It is given to SpongeBob at Mrs. Puff's house during the celebration thrown by Margaret and Harold SquarePants when SpongeBob gets his driver's license from extra credit. Mrs. Puff attempts to carjack it.

Boaty is destroyed when the boat crashes into the police car near the ending of the episode.


  • SpongeBob calls another boat Boaty in the episode "Gone."
  • The "IM-RDY" license plate from this boat reappears in SpongeBob's garage in the episode "Sharks vs. Pods" and outside of the back of the RV from "Pineapple RV."
