s/v S/V question ?

I'm not a sailor but I want to have a plaque made for a sailor friend. This is a private cruising vessel less than 35 feet. Is the use of S/V or s/v appropriate to use in front of the vessel's name? If not is there something else to use? I want to be sure the boat name is understood to be the name of the vessel and not a nickname for the recipient. I have seen the s/v and S/V used but I'm not sure when that is appropriate or if there are rules as to the use of the abbreviations.
