- Ahoy is a signal word used to signal a ship or boat, stemming from the Middle English cry, 'Hoy!'. The word had fallen into obsolescence before rising from obscurity as the sport of sailing rose in popularity. 'Ahoy' can also be used as a greeting, a warning, or a farewell.

- Ahoy a.k.a. Ahoy! was a magazine published between January 1984 and January 1989 that focused on all Commodore International color computers, but especially the Commodore 64 and Amiga. It was noted for the quality and learnability of its type-in program listings. It published many games in BASIC and occasionally printed programs in standard, readable assembly language rather than the relatively obscure hexadecimal listings used by other magazines such as Compute! and RUN, although in its February 1985 issue Ahoy! did publish a machine language checksumming program called Flankspeed to compete with the likes of Compute!'s MLX.
