Definition of "Yacht"

All romance aside, the term ''Yacht'' simply applies to any pleasure craft of any size. As a term in proper nautical use it is solely a way of distinguishing between working craft and pleasure craft. Coloquially it has taken on a lot of baggage but that has little relevance to the actual proper marine definition.
