Definition of "Yacht"

My wife and daughter asked, "When is a sailboat a yacht? Does the word "yacht" apply to a particular size, or level of accomodation, or design?" I didn''t know the answer, so I''m relaying these questions to the collective wisdom of this forum.

BTW, I thought if the boat has a galley, a permanent head, and sleeping space for the whole family, then most likely it could be called a "yacht".
