Sailing yacht will do also...unless that risks to be misunderstood

Re: "Boat" vs. "Yacht"?

This works for anything from a rowboat to the Queen Mary. If it smells of fish its a boat,
if it doesn't its a yacht.

With respect to the SailNetters here , It's not the boat it's the skipper .

Re: "Boat" vs. "Yacht"?

The use of "sailing vessel" over "yacht" over the radio is pretty common down here too. I actually cannot recall the last time I logged in someone that called their (sailing) boat a "yacht" over VHF. They've always identified themselves as "sailing vessel name-here".

The dictionary defines it as I would "a medium-sized sailing boat equipped for cruising or racing" or "a powered boat equipped for cruising". Or more colloquially - a sailing boat of decent (but not mega) size, and most power boats, equipped for the purposes of fun / leisure. I'd probably add that the power boats need to be a decent size too... tinnies can make for some fun on the lake, but they are not yachts

I admit the definition has an edge of "idle wealthy" added to it by most people I talk to who don't sail and, yes, they often have no issues with motorhome owners. Odd, eh?

Re: "Boat" vs. "Yacht"?

Yup- I 'll keep going with s/v. That way the prices won't go up when we pull into a new harbor. Most expensive shoes I own are my sea boots. I still shop at tractor supply. No way I'm comfortably saying "the yacht Hippocampus " on the radio. Just the little voice in my head says that and then it giggles.
