Silly question, I know....
The Admiral and I bought our Hunter 34 to enjoy sailing. I can safely say we''re not snobs. One look at our boat will confirm that. She''s old, but still seaworthy, and that''s what really matters. You can call her a Yacht or a boat. It really doesn''t matter as long as she''s still afloat.
Right now, "learning to sail" is more important to us than "how we look", and it''ll probably stay that way until we''ve learned everything about sailing, or in other words - forever.
