Interpreting Boat / Ship Dreaming

Boat / Ship Symbolism in Dreams:

Boats represent our attitude to death and 'The Final Journey'. They can also represent fertility and adventure.

Personal Strengths and Life Changes:

Many boat/ship dreams depict something else: a situation we are involved in with other people which is difficult to get out of, such as marriage, business partnership, armed forces. Keel represents basic personal strengths. Bows symbolize one's strength to meet life's changes. Rudder indicates sureness about direction in life.

Relationship Endings and Independence:

The ship sinking signifies fear of relationship ending—could be children leaving mother or illness. Leaving boat but leaving bag on it symbolizes lack of identity or feeling alone. Embarking alone symbolizes independence or loneliness.

Interpretation of Specific Boat Types:

  • To dream of a sailboat signifies complacency. If in stormy seas, it indicates being extremely busy.
  • A steamship symbolizes slow but steady progress.
  • A lifeboat represents a need to escape or get out of a difficult situation.

Psychological / Emotional Perspective:

To dream of being alone in a small boat means considering how one handles isolation and the ability to be alone. Dreaming of being on a large ship alerts to how one handles group relationships. Missing a boat is often the dream of a perfectionist fearing missed chances or opportunities.
