A yacht is a recreational boat or ship. The term designates two rather different classes of craft: sailing and power boats. Yachts differ from working ships mainly by their leisure purpose. Yacht lengths generally range from 10 meters (33 ft) up to dozens of meters (hundreds of feet). A luxury craft smaller than 12 meters (39 ft) is more commonly called a cabin cruiser or simply a cruiser. A super-yacht generally refers to any yacht (sail or power) above 24 m (79 ft) and a mega-yacht to one over 50 meters (164 ft).
Not surprisingly, a motor-sailer is defined as a boat equipped with both sails and an engine. Some define it as a sailing boat with an auxiliary internal combustion engine, others as a motor-boat with auxiliary sails. Since all sailing boats have a small auxiliary engine for when there is no wind or for manouvres, we will side with the version of a relatively small-speed motor boat with auxiliary or decorative sails.
A sailing boat is a boat propelled partly or entirely by sails. The generic term covers a variety of boats, larger than small vessels such as sailboards and smaller than sailing ships, but distinctions in the size are not strictly defined and what constitutes a sailing ship, sailboat, or a smaller vessel (such as a sailboard) varies by region and maritime culture. Apart from size, sailboats may be distinguished by their hull configuration (monohull, catamaran, trimaran), keel type (full, fin, wing, centerboard etc.), purpose (sport, racing, cruising), number and configuration of masts, and sail plan.
Power Boats or Cruisers
A pleasure boat powered exclusively by a power engine, thus achieving higher speed and able to travel longer distances in comfort, yet not necessarily offering the same pleasure of contact with the sea.
