YACHT. A leisure craft which can be driven by sail or power. Yacht lengths start about 30 - 40 feet and go as far as hundreds of feet. Yachts can be used for racing, cruising, island hopping, and a whols host of water bourne activities.


Yacht - wikipedia

Yacht in modern use designates two rather different classes of watercraft, sailing and power yachts. Yachts are differentiated from working ships mainly by their leisure purpose: they are comfortable conveyances owned by the wealthy. It was not until the ascendancy of the steamboat and other types of powerboat that sailing vessels in general came to be perceived as luxury items.
